Great Yarmouth enjoyed the spectacular sight of the giant Seabourn Ovation cruise ship pulling into port on Sunday morning.

But as hundreds of American tourists poured out on to Peel Ports' Outer Harbour, one photographer was capturing a very different perspective on proceedings.

The Visit With Us Youtube channel took this fascinating drone footage of the ship in dock.

Giving a birdseye view of the top of the ship, showing its inviting swimming pools and top decks, the footage also shows the welcoming committee, led by borough mayor Mary Coleman, meeting passengers as they alight.

The ship was on the last leg of a cruise around the British Isles, which included Newcastle, Liverpool and Dublin.

The arrival of the Seabourn Ovation follows a visit in June to Peel Ports' Outer Harbour by her sister ship the Seabourn Quest, which had more than 400 passengers on board.

Further cruise ship arrivals are planned for 2019 and 2020.
