These are the binoculars on Oasis Class.Cool! Now I wonder why they aren't installend on the ships I've been on
Yes, I'm thinking of buying a decent one. But I was wondering why ships offer zip-lines and whatever in an attempt to empty our pockets don't offer the most straightforward service I'd expect on a ship.
those would never cross my mind as being a requirement/straightforward 'of course this is on board' thing.Actually, for someone who does own a pair of binoculars, cruising is probably the activity most likely to have reason to use them - unless you are interested in checking out your neighbor's bedroom windows. Being at sea is one of the few times you are likely to want them - approaching shorelines, passing other ships and sea creatures -are exactly when you might want them.
while underway, there tends to be very little of note to see unless you are in or near a port or busy channel. the most exciting things we do is try and figure out the parent company of that container ship on the far horizon . we've been escorted exactly once by a Pod of dolphins, and I have seen exactly one breaching whale. now IIRC , they are standard on Alaskan cruises. a LOT more potential on those itineraries.
