Will Cruise For Photos

Early morning in Cental Park aboard Allure of the Seas

Yes, I’m still here. And thanks to those who wrote separately to ask if everything was OK. All’s well!

Kathy & I had a little “Caribbean Business” to attend to for a few weeks. We visited friends in central Florida, met up with a long-time friend of Kathy’s and her husband on a cruise for 6 days, stayed on the same ship for another 8 days, then visited with different friends in Florida on the way home. Got back, started attacking a long-neglected to-do list and here we are!

Remarkably, we have no confirmed travel plans for the remainder of the year. But we are working hard to remedy that situation! Lots of possibilities in the works, to be sure.

One of the things I love about cruising is the interesting variety of things to photograph. The ships themselves have plenty of subject matter, and in sailing to different destinations, there are always new things to see. I grabbed a quick handful of a few photos in order to end the drought, as it were.

I’ll have some more photos and stories to share as I get things done over the next week or two, so stay tuned! 🙂

  1. I have never been on a cruise and just don’t have the desire. My sister and brother-in-law enjoy a couple each year. I am impressed with the architecture aboard these ships from your images. Yes, impressive!

    Glad you had a good time and welcome home! Yes, I’m staying tuned.

    1. No, I don’t think a cruise ship would be your kind of place. Frankly, when I think about it, I’m always a bit surprised at how much we enjoy it. A lot of people cruise for the party atmosphere found on some of the lines, but since we generally prefer cruise lines and smaller ships that don’t attract that crowd, it is more about the level of service and relaxation we can find. Not to mention the destinations. The ships themselves are very impressive in terms of size and architecture, but also for the technology, amenities and facilities aboard.

      You’ve got me thinking that I need to expand on this a bit in a future post!

  2. A nice collection of light and architecture, Tom. Other than the Navy I’ve not been on a cruise but a friend in Tampa does them often and seems to really enjoy it. You mentioned smaller ships and I think if I were do it I’d prefer that. I hope when you expand on this subject you discuss the smaller ships and the positive aspects.

    If you ever get a chance read “A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never do Again” by David Foster Wallace. He took a cruise.
