«Cruise Ship Watch: Golden Princess, Spirit of '98, Statendam, Oosterdam, and Diamond Princess»

Like I said in the last Cruise Ship Watch, there would be 5 ships in today that I haven't photographed for my blog. Well, I decided to stay in town so I could get them. So here are the Golden Princess, Spirit of '98 (no wikipedia page), Statendam, Oosterdam, and Diamond Princess. Click an image to view full.

Let's start with the Golden Princess. You can also see the Spirit of '98 in this picture.

Here's the Spirit of '98 up closer, with the Golden Princess towering in the background. The Spirit of '98 is just a small ship, carrying only about 100 passengers.

The Statendam, you can see a couple of buses for size comparison.

  1. You decided to stay in town? Were you escaping the island? Or does that mean going to Dad's?

    You are quite the busy blogger lately. It's cool to see so much content here.

  2. My dad lives 12 miles out the road. I stayed at my mom's place (in town). Although I'm at my dad's now.

    Yeah, I know I have been busy. So far it's been 7 posts in 3 days. But now that I'm at my dad's it'll calm down a bit.

    I don't think I'll get any pictures of the 4th of July parade tomorrow. I'm not all that interested and neither is my dad.

  3. Wow, talk about colossal ships! Have you ever been on them?

  4. @ |bernadette|: Yes. One time our class back in elementary school went on a field trip and took a tour through one. I've never actually gone on a cruise, however.
