First cruise ship of 2009 anchored in front of Old Town

Whilst the Costa Fortuna cannot today claim to be the first cruise ship to visit Dubrovnik in 2009 I certainly believe it is the first ship of the year to anchor in front of the Old Town. Other ships tend to moor in Gruz Harbour which is out of view for me, but summer viewing from home is great. Time to dust down the binoculars! She left her anchorage at about 2pm as you can see above. I checked out the pax capacity of this ship - 2,716 with 1,027 crew. Goodness, QE2 had a mere 1,791 pax and 1,019 crew (and 40 nationalities)
