The first cruise ship in two years sailed into the Annapolis Basin Wednesday, Oct. 3 with 310 passengers aboard.

Here are some photographs I took of the Quest for Adventure moving into position.

Reporter Nicole Feriancek was invited aboard and will give us a tour of the luxury cruise ship tomorrow.

I am also preparing a report on the question: would the passengers and crew recommend Digby as a cruise destination? Also hopefully tomorrow.
