An early morning view of the Grand Mistral berthed alongside CT1 (Cruise Terminal 1) of the Admiralty Pier in the Western Docks.

The red-bricked structure to the right of the passenger ship is the Cruise Terminal 1 building, previously Dover Marine Railway Station (and Dover Western Docks). Above the CT1 building are the Western Heights.

This Dover Harbour photo was taken at 6.22 am on Tuesday, 7th of September, 2010, from near the end of the Prince of Wales Pier. The structure on the left-hand side is the lighthouse with the corner of the cafe on the right: both are shown in The Lighthouse and Cafe, Prince of Wales Pier picture.

The MS Grand Mistral is a cruise ship currently sailing for Iberocruceros and formerly owned by Festival Cruise Line (Festival Cruises).
