Pilot Boat Alongside Scarlet Lady Cruise Ship


published on 18 August 2021 75 -

Found on YouTube. Created by "Mark & Marie's Travels". Originally published on 2021-08-18.
From our deck 12 cabin balcony, some footage of the pilot boat coming alongside Virgin Voyages' cruise ship Scarlet Lady in the Solent between Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight. If you're expecting action and excitement then brace yourself for not quite that at all, but it is fairly impressive how close the pilot boat gets to the larger vessel, bouncing around on the waves. I did want to see the pilot leap from the ship to the boat but in truth got tired of waiting so if that's the bit you're keen to see then you might want to find someone else's pilot boat video to watch instead.
