Well, there's no danger this ship would be up a creek without a boat!

Sorry, that's a play on an old American (I think) saying about being up a creek without a paddle, meaning you're in trouble

This is such a magnificent vessel...keep showing us more of it!

Fantastic shots, VP, love them all! I don't know if ships have 'balconies', but whatever the name might be, the one on top is beautiful!
