Waverley sailed down to Greenock to meet up with fleet-mate MV Balmoral which had earlier arrived at the town's James Watt Dock after a passage up from her winter berth at Bristol. On April 18th the two ships entered dry-dock together for their annual inspections. Photos below by Kenny Whyte
Both ships left the dry dock on April 30th
