An incredible video has captured 10 cruise liners anchored in Weymouth Bay (off Isle of Portland, Dorset England) and at Portland Harbour on Saturday, July 18. The amazing sight was shot by local resident Geoff Moore.

The number of ships at anchor in Weymouth Bay seems to be rising after on May 14 a 6th cruiser joined the growing fleet. Cunard's ship Queen Victoria anchored offshore alongside the other vessels, creating a unique view for locals.

Cruise companies were forced to cancel all departures due to the ongoing pandemic. Passenger-free liners have anchored off England's coast during the lockdown. Queen Victoria joined the fleetmate RMS Queen Mary 2, along with the P&O UK-operated liners ArcadiaAuroraAzura and Ventura.

The other ships in the video include P&O Britannia, Carnival Breeze, Carnival Valor, Marella Discovery, Marella Explorer, Marella Explorer 2. Aurora and Queen Victoria have already left the port.

Weymouth Bay is a sheltered waterway on England's south coast, protected from erosion by Portland Island and Chesil Beach.
