Ships

It seems amazing to say, but this was the third cruise I've taken this calendar year!  Norwegian Sun is a mid-sized ship at 76,000 tons (for comparison, Titanic, clocked in at about 46,000 tons) and it was home for 7 days.  My cabin was on Deck 10, which apparently was far enough away from steerage that if the ship were to be abandoned, I'd get a genuine life boat and not just a raft!

We encountered other ships, either in ports or en route.  I'm an army guy through and through, but I must admit I do enjoy looking at and being on ships.  Here are some pictures:
