P&O cruises' Britannia has dropped anchor near Weymouth.

The cruise ship can hold a total of 3,647 passengers but currently doesn't have any, aside it's crew.

Britannia leaves the bay for Southampton tomorrow where it will remain docked because of the coronavirus pandemic.

P&O say their cruises will not resume until at least 15th May this year.

That ship is bigger than the cliffs. Ooh hello mate. Must you be so close? lol.

Shore leave for the crew has been cancelled and they will all remain on board for the duration of it's time at Southampton. 

No visitors will be admitted on to the ship either, apart from on official business.
