This panorama view of the Western Docks was taken from near the gun emplacements of St Martin’s Battery on the Western Heights cliffs at 5.48 am on Wednesday, 25th of August, 2010.

The MS Crystal Symphony arrived earlier in the morning from Amsterdam (Netherlands) and is about to start a "British Isles Cruise" with a first port of call of Edinburgh (Scotland). Owner: Crystal Cruises. Callsign: C6MY5, IMO: 9066667, MMSI 309168000, Flag: Bahamas. Built in 1995 by Kvaerner Masa-Yards in Turku, Finland.

The cruise ship was also in port on the 14th of June 2010. The caption to the following photo contains more information about the vessel and also links to two other Crystal Symphony images that were taken that day:

When in range of AIS, the vessel's current position is shown at:

The Automatic Identification System (AIS) is an automatic tracking system used on ships and by vessel traffic services (VTS) for identifying and locating vessels by electronically exchanging data with other nearby ships and AIS Base stations. AIS information supplements marine radar, which continues to be the primary method of collision avoidance for water transport.
