I have only been on one cruise, but thoroughly enjoyed it. Here are a few pics from the trip on Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Seas:

at their private island - Coco Cay

Bump bump bump indeed! Time to revive this thread! :D:D:D

OK, I just did a 2 week Panama Canal cruise with stops at various places. Of course I brought my trusty G1X with me and I took a few pics......
OK, maybe more than a few. I took a few more than 100 pics.
Well, actually the number exceeded 1000! Wow, a thousand pics?
Well if truth be known the shutter thingy clicked over 4800 pics!

Yeah one or two of these were cruise ships! I'm gonna start with a a few of leaving Miami April 21:

Here is the Carnival Breeze pulling out of port

I was on the Norwegian Pearl, so I couldn't exactly leap out into the ocean for Pearl pics, but the NCL Sun, our sister ship, was traveling nearly the identical route as the Pearl.
Fortunately for a shutterbug like me, the Sun was usually one step in front of us at the various ports. So I had the opportunity to take a gob of pics of the Sun, including going through the Panama Canal.
More pics to follow...............

So what cruise ship photo log would be complete without a shot of the tugboats that push these big massive behemoths around when needed?

Here is one:

Ohhhh and a few more:

Here is the NCL Sun at sea. OK, remember I'm shooting with a G1X, a great awesome camera, but still a P&S, with the limitations of same said such type of camera. I could have lugged a DSLR and a hernia's worth of gear but I opted for ONE camera that I could stick in the pocket of my cargo shorts. Ahhhhhhhh it was great!
So this first shot shows the limitations of a P&S but nonetheless an accurate example of the view out in the middle of the Atlantic ocean. The NCL Sun, a short distance away fro the Pearl.

And a shot of myself with my beautiful bride at sea, sitting on the back deck of the Pearl, overlooking the ocean...... can you say ahhhhhhhhhhhhh?

Cruise Ships are most impressive - I was able to capture a few about a year ago in Cabo St. Lucas, Mexico.
I posted all my pics in the transportation section - a couple of Carnivals (Splendor and Spirit), the Saphire Princess,
Deutschland, and the Disney Wonder.
I see most of them are shown here in various locations - good thread !!


Randy, Gear - 3 in the green, and a T5i with a few lenses !

Panama Canal

And here are a few more of the thousands of pictures I took.

These ones are of the Norwegian Sun going through the Panama Canal:


Entering the locks - note the clearance on the sides, or should I say lack of clearance! Not a whole lot of room for error. When the ships come out the other end they are scraped up a bit.

Pretty tight in there!

Note the little trains they have on each side of the ship, both front and back. They hook onto the ship with cables to help guide it through the locks without hitting anything.
The ship actually goes through under its own power and these trains are for holding it on course only. Very cool process.

And a closer shot of the little trains hooked up. You can see the front of the Norwegian Pearl hooked up. It was cool going through the process with another ship beside us. Made it great for taking pictures. I got a few of the Pearl here and there over the 2 week cruise but a pile of the Sun.
