Cruise ship Royal Princess arrived for the first time in Picton on Friday as it made its stately way into the deep waters of Shakespeare Bay.

It is the first time the mammoth liner, which was launched by Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge in 2013, has berthed in Picton.

With a guest capacity of 3560, the 141,000 tonne ship boasts 19 decks and has a service speed of 22 knots.
