Cruise Ships

Cruise season starts in ernest from Southampton this weekend. The waters of the Solent are plied by many floating palaces and here are two new ones. The "Freedom" is the current world record holder for dimensions but will be overhauled next year we are told. The "Legend" appears small by comparison but is gigantic up close.

JJ - set to cruise-control and put your feet up! I have never been on a cruise but I would like to one day.

Transience - the larger of the two will not be based in Southampton so we are ulikely to see this monster in our local river again. Hey I like your new(-ish) Icelandic avatar.

Enjoyed the photos. I've never been on a cruise, either. IT's one of my ocean-related dreams. Ahhhh. :)

amazing how relatively cheap bahamian cruises are. go get on a ship!!

Perfect Virgo said...

Silvermoon - Me neither. But boats must surely be safer than planes? I can swim but I can't fly. "Les reves sont tres belles."

CJ - bloody great submarine is my guess!

Mussolini - everything is criminally expensive from the UK - "rip-off Britain" is an accurate tag. Perhaps I could inflate a small dinghy and paddle...
