The submarine was HMS Trafalgar tthat had been tied up on Berth 38/9, the Queen Elizabeth terminal. Trafalgar was towed up the Solent to Southampton Docks on the morning of 5 December aand back down the Solent on 10 December. It is not a usually event. Sorry can't help on the cruise ship.

There you have your answers but a bit extra is that this submarine's visit was unusual in that it was a nuclear submarine, they are not known to dock here regularly and it caused some consternation because all of the local school children were allocated a tablet which had to be taken if there was an accident involving the Submarine. As John from Ryde will tell you the locals refer to the Isle of Wight as the Isle of Wigget. .... Neil.

Many thanks for the information, having only sailed with and being a fan of RCI and NCL I did not realise that P & O also had the yellow funnel like Costa, in the past whenever we have seen the yellow funnel I always mentioned to the good lady it was a Costa ship. No doubt I was wrong on many occasions. Live and learn…..I was surprised how small the Submarine looked above the water, no doubt colossal below the waves. Regards.

Yep, re the submarine. Think of an iceberg.
