How about these two I saw in Croatia a couple of weeks ago. I know the second one isn’t a cruise ship but wow.

Lovely pictures WTD.

It looks like Oceana will be sailing in the Mediterranean throughout the winter. Her original itinerary of sailing in the Arabian Gulf has been cancelled.

I've been on there. Many years ago when I worked in Bermuda I was privileged to be invited on board. R-
Not sure if I have plenty of time on my hands - or I’ve simply forgotten to do something really important.

Lovely ship, such a pity she's no longer in service. Escorted her many times.

A lovely ship indeed. We visited her in Leith just after she had arrived (1998 I think.)

We were at a Conference in Edinburgh and at the end , prior to returning home, we made a quick to the coastal area. Seeing 'Britannia' from a differnt angle was a pleasant surprise.

Soon we shall be back to 'the big ones'. :D
