Around 13,00 hrs on the 26th May the Oriana docked in Gibraltar for the very last time. She left the Passenger Terminal at 19,00 hrs. There were a number of people on the harbour wall watching her leave some had sailed on her recently, There were a few tears shed, me included . Some Government officials went on board to thank her for coming to Gibraltar all her years and to say goodbye. Good fortune in your new role and name Bon Voyage ORIANA
Always sad to hear of the older ships leaving service . There is always an attachment to them . Passengers tend to have favourites. I suppose she will be replaced by MV Iona. Hope there are no,job losses in the pipeline. Best wishes for all in the future.
