Come dine on board.

Byline: Shipping PETER ELSON charts life on the Mersey LLIINNEESS

ONCE again Shipping Lines is delighted to offer readers 10 pairs of tickets to enjoy a tour and lunch on board the fabulous five-star giant cruise liner MV Caribbean Princess.

After the great success of last year's prize draw the megaliner's owner, Princess Cruises, kindly offered to repeat the competition for 20 lucky readers.

The tour and lunch will take place aboard the de luxe liner at Liverpool Cruise Terminal on Tuesday, August 20, during her third and final call of round-UK cruises.

The fortunate winners will experience the glamorous interior of this magnificent ship on what is a very rare opportunity for day visitors.

They will visit public spaces like the astonishing Skywalker disco cantilevered above the ship's stern, the three-deck marbled atrium, outside cinema and take lunch in one of the speciality restaurants - all while this huge ship is berthed in the heart of Liverpool.

The mighty Caribbean Princess is the largest cruise liner to regularly call at Liverpool. She is now the second largest vessel in Princess Cruises' fleet after Royal Princess, which was named by the Duchess of Cambridge last month.

The liner is 112,894 gross tons, 951ft long, 165ft beam, 27ft draught and 165ft height, with twin screws giving a top speed of 23.3 knots (27mph). With a total of 17 decks, she can carry 3,622 passengers and a crew of 1,200. Her 1,558 cabins include 1,105 outside (ie, sea view), 885 with balconies and more than 200 suites.

To enter the competition, simply answer the question: What is the name of Caribbean Princess' owner? Shipping Lines' special reporter Stuart Wood will pick the winners.
