I think one could easily become lost wandering the decks of these cruise ships.

You know I like this.... sometimes wondering if these big cruise ships will visit my city.
And the little tug boat is cute.

Happy Sunday!

Three cruise ships in less than an hour? That's LOT of tourists!

Sharon Anck said...

That cruise ship is huge!

You have a very active port. Our cruise season to the Maritimes is coming upon us: Sept through Oct. The changing leaves, at various stops, is the big draw.

A cruise ship traffic jam! Amazing. And you must have climbed out of bed rather early to get these cool captures!

Is this the end of the series VP, I have enjoyed seeing your busy harbour very much.

Tina - Not many tourists stay here...
Lowell - 5:00 AM, once in a while, but it was worth it!
Grace - Not the end: three more parts...

The light is fantastic, that's your reward for early morning port activity!

The are so huge that each of them is a small city in itself. Impressive.

Livorno has a busy, busy port!

Wow, just wow!
I hope those mooring and tug crews get good pay. They seem to be working hard all the time.

I'm still struck whenever you show one of these by how top heavy those cruise ships seem.
