Princess Rose – Hilton to Canary Wharf Service

Posted on Updated on

City Cruises Princess Rose started her first day of two weeks on hire to Thames Clippers to operate the Hilton to Canary Wharf service normally operated by Twin Star whilst she receives a splash of paint in drydock.     Princess Rose operated for City Cruises during the 1990s on sightseeing routes but since being rebuilt tends to fill the role of tendering for cruise ships etc.
