We have had a whole brace of exciting ships in the harbour recently. Here we are with another example and all looking good.
I myself am running a bit behind on the scheduling as I had some techy problems but now fixed...so here we go.
So, from a day or two ago here we are with the latest featured ship...
the Seabourn Sojourn. This one is smallish but ever so beautifully packaged. Very sleek.
Some people say the smaller ships are better as you build up cosy friendships but of course its all down to choice.
Arriving at the break of dawn....
the sky turning a mysterious yellow colour as it brightens
and another pic but closer in..you can see what the captain is having for breakfast !!

The pictures here are of the magnificent Carnival Legend departing sunday evening. Squeezing her huge frame out through the western exit. Today monday we have two magnificent Crystal ships in.. as mentioned by ColetteB below. One of the best and impressive double header of ships yet, worth seeing and very much here today....Great stuff Dover! Should get plenty of visitors around the town today.
And now, here we are with the departing Carnival Legend..
No pictures yet of todays ships, as with the change of seasons its darker when they arrive now.
The Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony came in a few minutes apart around 5.15 - 5.20am this morning and of course it was pitch dark. Pictures later hopefully.Thanks for the comments guys.

good move paul as many don't see the front page and also if there is a quiet period on the channel the thread gets shunted down.

DFDS - Back by popular demand ...the £20 onboard voucher returns to the Dover-France routes
A guaranteed shopping spree at sea with DFDS Seaways but ....hurry see dates.
Due to popular demand from customers, DFDS Seaways has reintroduced its complimentary £20 voucher to spend in the onboard shop. The voucher offer is bigger and better than before as it is now available to all passengers travelling on both the Dover-Dunkirk and Dover-Calais routes between 9 September and 13 December 2013, with all bookings made by 4 September.
Whether shopping for souvenirs, gifts for loved ones or simply a treat, passengers can now enjoy a shopping spree at sea for free. With fares from only £50 return for a car and up to nine passengers, there has never been a better time to book an autumn escape.
There is something for everyone in the onboard shop, which stocks a great range of products including wines and spirits, perfumes and cosmetics, toys, gifts, books, souvenirs and confectionary. There really is no excuse to go home empty handed!
When passengers book a return crossing, they will receive a booking confirmation by email, which will include the £20 onboard shopping voucher and instructions on how to redeem it.
DFDS Seaways operates up to 44 daily sailings between Dover and Dunkirk and Dover and Calais, providing passengers with flexible crossing times, a fantastic onboard travel experience and convenient travel options. As well as the onboard shop, the Dover to France routes provide passengers with restaurants, cafes and bars, a children’s play area, as well as outdoor deck space.
The two French ports provide a convenient gateway to Europe whether travellers are heading south through France, north to Belgium and Holland or east to Germany, Poland and eastern Europe.
To find our more about the £20 onboard shopping voucher offer, or to book a return Dover to France ferry crossing, visit www.dfds.co.uk/voucher or telephone 0871 574 7235.

Well we saw her early arrival in the previous picture and here she is again, the Costa Romantica, leaving last night in the late late glow of the evening sunshine. She always cuts a sleek dash. Just outside the harbour she turned south...Mediterranean bound no doubt..
