The Swan Hellenic line's MV Minerva navigates its way between the islands of Scilly. The water between the islands here can be very shallow so cruise ships such as this must pick the correct tides and route between islands.

The Minerva is relatively small by modern standards at around 12,500 tons and carrying around 350 passengers. Still makes a change from the Scillonian!
