The wake suggests she is moving quite well, Peter...what speed to they cruise at?
....peter:): he would only be at about 1/8 his speed coming into port Ray... high-speed cruise ship can go as fast as 30 knots or more....petersmile
The old and the new...
....peter:): i agree Larry... the old port stays basically the same... it's just what is on the seas that are new....petersmile
It sure gives perspective to that ship. Nice shot.
....peter:): thank you Michael... they are quite large vessels....petersmile
A lovely view over all those red tiled roofs!
....peter:): the old and the new Elizabeth....petersmile
This is when you can really see how HUGE these cruise ships are, Peter. Floating mini-cities!
....peter:): this shows the size of these HUGE cruise ships pretty well Ginnie....petersmile

I see you had a great 'point of view' here, overseeing everything.
....peter:): we were on top of the mountain at the Basilica of Notre Dame du Guard Astrid... where there is a 360 view of the city and the port....petersmile
Quite a contrast Peter
....peter:): the old and the new Bill... that ship sure looks big approaching the lighthouse....petersmile

This gives a great perspective on the city and the sea Peter.
....peter:): it does give a good perspective on the old city Brad... with a brand new ship approaching the harbour....petersmile
J'aime les bateaux et j'ai bien aimé les deux croisières que j'ai faites sur le Nil en 1979 et 2000 et en Russie en 1996 mais il y avait encore peu de bateaux à  l'époque. A présent il y en a tellement que nos fleuves, mers, océans et lacs sont polluées, le pire je crois étant Venise.
Mais ta photo est bien composée avec cette vue par-dessus les toits. Bisous à  vous 3
....peter:): merci pour le commentaire sur la composition Marie ...
je suis d'accord qu'il y a tellement de bateaux de croisière aujourd'hui qu'ils ajoutent beaucoup de polluants à l'océan et à l'air que nous respirons!
Bisous de nous 3

You are up on the hill, with that big girl on the church?
....peter:): i was in good company of that big golden girl on the hill Louis....petersmile
Were you on a cruise too?
....peter:): Not this time Mary we spent two weeks at a house in the south of France with Chris and his family... it was a great vacation....petersmile
Bonjour Peter, ces bateaux de croisière sont vraiment impressionnant, un village sur l'eau... Bise, bon lundi tout en douceur!
....peter:): ce sont vraiment des villages de la mer Maria-Lina... Bisous et bon lundi tout doux....peter/pierresmile

....peter:): merci jean pierre! amitiés....peter/pierresmile
