SATURDAY, DEC. 3: The Queen Victoria cruise ship arrived in Dockyard this morning to wet and windy conditions.

The luxury liner, which has recently become a Bermuda-flagged vessel, battled the elements for a short while before she successfully came alongside at just after 9am.

The ship's last port of call was in the Azores before she arrived in Bermuda.

The Queen Victoria is owned by cruise giant Cunard which recently re-flagged three of its cruise ships to Bermuda.

The move means that weddings can take place on board the ship while it is at sea.

U.K-flagged vessels are not allowed to offer the service under U.K law.

The Queen Victoria was only in the West End for a matter of hours before she set off across the Atlantic again at 3pm bound for Charleston.

She boasts seven restaurants, 13 bars, three swimming pools, a ballroom and a theatre.
