This afternoon. It has just left Lairds and headed over to the Cruise Terminal. I think it is leaving there tomorrow to set off on final sea trials

Gutted I missed it sailing out.
I was in rock retail park between 1:30 and 2pm, and it was still in Lairds dock.

I thought she had been delayed until tomorrow. I'm sure if she'd gone there would have been hoots and toots on the News North West, and in the Echo etc. So far all has been quiet since she docked at Liverpool.


Cruise Liverpool Facebook. 2 hrs ago..... says she's her for another night. Nice pictures.

It was on the north west news, BBC and ITV when it left Lairds and went to Liverpool, and will be going to Holyhead when their lockdown ends.

"The Attenborough is going to sail across the north Wales coast to Holyhead, which will be her base for the next year. But she can't arrive until after the latest Welsh Covid lockdown, which ends on Monday 9 November."

Yes, I think we have got our positioning mixed up. You were talkning bout her coming out of Lairds, which I took as you meaning her sailing form Liverpool.

Thats why I said she is still in Liverpool.

Sorry ! Confussion rains and we all got wet.
