The cruise ship Orion dwarfed at Queens Wharf

Thanks for posting the pics, I didn't realise it was so small.

Sun Princess in Bay of Islands.

You can just make out a tender heading back to the ship on the LH side of the pic.

Yes, a lovely place for a visit, the ship looks like it is moored a long way out.:D

It looks a long way from the pic , but its only about a 10 minute tender ride.The ships used to come a lot further in , but many years ago when one pulled up its anchor , it also pulled up the electrical cable and cut most of Northland off till they fixed it. The spot where you see the ship is now the official anchorage for cruise ships in the Bay of Islands..:)

The photo may be deceptive as we were there on the Solstice (Oct 2013) and would imagine using a similar location. The Sun just looked much further out.:D

Santas extra sleigh???

Heres an unusual one.You dont often see other ships in bridge cam shots especially when they are at sea. Heres one from the busy Caribbean...being all red it looks like Santa has called on the help of shipping with an extra sleigh which is heading for Florida with all the goodies on board..:D:D
