  1. Oh yeah; that certainly is an incredible size difference all right; but 3,200 people and (I think I see) 13-14 deck levels? Not my cup of tea… No offence to Cruise Goers, but these things are just so brutish looking. Give me the grace of the Queen Mary (or the Blue Nose; ) any day.
    Look here: http://scherbakshipmodels.tripod.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/qm1d.jpg. All big boats aren’t ugly; )
    Also, just wondering… What are the trio of silhouettes on the horizon?

    1. Looking more closely now, I see that the large one is Emerald Princess. She takes 3,080 passengers on 15 passenger decks. Crew: 1,200.

      QMII takes 2,620 on 13 passenger decks. She’ll be here late October and she’s beautiful!!! The last of the ocean liners… I have no particular urge to go on any cruise.

      The one to the left is a light pole … flood light. The other one, is more intriguing — I don’t know what it is. Irving was going to build their ‘world headquarters’ there on Long Wharf, and supposedly, the building was going to be as tall as that ‘thing’. They started, but then changed theird minds, so all the poles had to be banged into the ground with a pile driver! The thing is still there. One could always remove stuff like that with Photoshop, but I figure … since they’re there in reality — why not let them stay.
