I looked pretty carefully and no, I didn't see anything strange in the first picture. I will have to check back tomorrow to see what you have in mind.

I looked too...something perhaps to do with the name Corsica Victoria?

Dina - Tha is a bulbous bow, quite common in modern ships... but you are looking in the right place.

Yes I noticed the bow too. Other than that, I donr't see anything really strange except maybe that it's about to open?

Beautiful ship. Very nice photos. Yellow and blue - just perfect.

Nice colored ferry. Even if it is older, it has elegant lines. And, by the way, I love Trogir...

She is a beauty!

So I guess it is possible that I have travelled to or from Gotland with this ship.

I like the colors of these ferries. Nice and bright!

Dina said...

Oi! I DID see the wake yesterday and almost said it but wasn't sure! (It's not like I'm an expert on ships.) Next time I'll take a chance and go with my hunch, even if it turns out wrong.

Thanks for the info about the bulbous bow.
