It looks so massive, and top heavy.

Epic seems like a highly appropriate name.

Hard to believe ships can be this big. Must be 11 or 12 stories above the deck. Great photos.

Beautiful ship. Beautiful photos.

Jack said...

Wow. This ship is huge! I will never understand how they stay upright.

Waude .. the contrast between this really big ship and the little one is fantastic (the last photo is great). I like these detalies, lovely images.

Gunn said...

WOW, I really like the artistic decorations on the BIG boat, and I also like the cute pilot boat :) Great images.

Livorno sure is a busy place. A lot happens so early in the morning there.

Ha. In the 'small world' dept. Dining the other night with a couple who are flying to Europe soon and cruising on the, you guessed it, the Epic. Funny.

I like so much the contrast between the BIG ship and the small boat, especially in the first shot ;)

Sharon Anck said...

Wow, that is like a huge floating high-rise building.

Halcyon said...

Those things really are massive!

RedPat said...

The pilot boat looks so tiny next to that huge ship, VP!

Frame the last shot!

I am always somewhat amused at the size of the boats that are guiding the huge ships.

Everyone knows his role in this process. Especially the photographer.

Impressive ship although a holiday on such a ship sounds way too boring for me. But I like your photos of it.
