It is not an unusual sightseeing cruise ships off the Dorset's coast, but according to RCI-Royal Caribbean International, who own the 4 liners currently moored in the county, RCI was looking forward to welcoming passengers back onboard.
The four vessels visible on Dorset coastlines are Allure of the Seas, Anthem of the Seas, Explorer of the Seas and Jewel of the Seas. Allure OTS, which has been cruising for a decade, was the world’s biggest passenger vessel up until 2009 - at 362 metres in length.
Some RCI ships are keeping close to the UK's coastline so they can access the necessary resources and supplies when needed.
It is still not clear how long the liners would be on the coastline of Dorset.
