Photos of Cruise Ships

How many times have you seen an elegant cruise ship in a harbor or at the dock and taken a photo of it? Here are some pictures of miscellaneous cruise ships of all shapes and sizes. I think it is always fun to look at ships and wonder what they look like inside, where they are going, or where they have been, don't you? Some of these cruise ships I have sailed on at different times than when these cruise ship pictures were made, but it was great to see them again!

The Celebrity Eclipse leaves the shipyard for the first time on February 28, 2010.

The public had their first glimpse of the Celebrity Eclipse as she emerged from the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. The ship entered service in April 26, 2010.

Also featured will be Serenity, an exclusive adults-only retreat featuring plush chaise lounges and chairs, oversized umbrellas, teak decking and two whirlpools, while the "resort-style" main pool will incorporate a tropical theme with thatched roofs, faux palm trees, colorful umbrellas, and a tiled "beach" bordering the pool.

Carnival Fantasy also offers 12 themed lounges and bars, a nine-hole miniature golf course, a 12,000-square-foot Spa Carnival facility, three restaurants, full casino gambling, a comprehensive golf program where guests can play top Caribbean courses, and organized programs for children in three different age groups – "Camp Carnival" for youngsters, "Circle C" for 12- to 14-year olds, and "Club O2" for older teens.

Numerous cruise ships are often in port in Juneau during the busy summer cruise season. The small ships Spirit of Yorktown, Spirit of Discovery, and Lindblad Sea Lion were also in Juneau on the day we docked on the Regent Seven Seas' Seven Seas Mariner. Juneau has as many as eight ships visiting on any one day!

The docking facility at Grand Turk Island is relatively new, but cruise ships are quickly taking advantage of it. This picture of the Holland America Westerdam and the Costa Magica was submitted by Barbara Crews. I wonder if Barb "collected" anything new while cruising the Caribbean?

This picture may look like these two cruise ships are VERY close together, but they are separated by the pier at Grand Turk Island in the Bahamas. Barb Crews took this photo of the Costa Magica balcony that was being used as a clothes dryer while it was moored next to her ship the Holland America Westerdam.

I'll have to admit that I've been guilty of the same offense, but 99 percent of the time, no one sees your balcony this close!

The first section of the new Costa Magica cruise ship is delivered to the shipyard in Genoa, Italy.

The first section of the Costa Pacifica, which entered service in Spring 2009, was delivered to Fincantieri shipyard in Genoa Sestri Ponente on August 6, 2007. The bow section of the Costa Pacifica is 127 meters long, nearly 30 meters high, and weighs approximately 8,000 tons. It was built in Fincantieri's Palermo shipyard and transferred by sea to the Genoa Sestri Ponente shipyard where construction will continue.

The Costa Pacifica (114,500 tons and 3,780 passengers) is a sister ship to the Costa Serena. The Costa Pacifica will offer the same exciting innovations as her sister ships, including the Samsara Spa -- one of the largest spas at sea, two swimming pools with retractable magrodomes, and an authentic Grand Prix race car driving simulator.

Costa has three new ships on order or under construction in Italy with Fincantieri. In addition to the Costa Pacifica, two other ships, the Costa Luminosa (92,700 tons and 2,828 passengers) and her sister ship will be delivered by the Marghera shipyard in the Spring of 2009 and March 2010, respectively. At the end of 2010, when the last of the three ships currently on order are delivered, Costa's fleet will be 15 vessels strong and will offer more than 30,000 lower berths.

Since 2000, Costa has invested approximately €3.5 billion in Italy to build seven new ships, all ordered from Fincantieri. These orders are part of an expansion program worth €4.5 billion to introduce 11 ships from 2000 to 2010.

Queen Victoria was launched on December 10, 2007 by HRH The Duchess of Cornwall (Camilla Parker Bowles). Joining Queen Victoria at Port Everglades was Cunard's QE2, the world's most famous ocean liner. QE2 embarked on her 26th and final World Cruise and will complete her service to the Cunard fleet in November 2008.

Costa Luminosa Atrium Sculpture

Fernando Botero and "Reclining Woman 2004"
Photo by Matteo Piazza, Courtesy of Costa Crociere

Costa Cruises commissioned Italian sculptor Fernando Botero to produce this marvelous piece for the atrium of the Costa Luminosa cruise ship.

The bronze sculpture "Reclining Woman 2004" depicts a female figure staring into space, daydreaming in a reclining position with a subtle and ironic expression and with her legs in a dynamic position of movement. The sculpture, which is 346 cm in length, 177 cm in breadth, 152 cm in height and 910 kg in weight, boasts an imposing presence which defines and influences the surrounding space, establishing an ongoing dialog with the decoration in the atrium of the Costa Luminosa. The lone individual is the subject of many of the artist's works, which often feature single female figures in striking poses, with expressions and attire that Botero uses to telling effect in order to convey personality, experience, thought and desire.

Lammer Law and her sister ship the Cuan Law are the largest trimarans in the world. At 93 by 42 feet wide, her size, tri-hull design, and shallow draft offers stability as well as space and comfort for naturalist cruises, but specializes in and is completely equipped for diving cruises. Attractive and functional, it is perfect for the dedicated diver and for those passengers wishing to have a close experience with nature. The artful combination of stability, grace, and speed make this yacht a perfect partner for a Galapagos adventure.

The Lammer Law accommodates 16 guests in 8 cabins plus 8 crew members and 1 naturalist guide or dive master for a very personal cruising experience. With 1 crew member for every 2 guests, personal attention onboard the Lammer Law is exceptional in its class. The yacht offers a large, comfortable main salon with a library, bar, TV/video system and stereo; a sun deck; and a dining room for exquisite buffet dining. All cabins include double or twin beds, private facilities, climate controls, safe-boxes, and ample space to hang and store clothing.

The furnishings and fittings are designed by the decorator responsible for one of Donald Trump’s hotels for a class and style which other small ships in Galapagos often lack.

Divers will appreciate that the Lammer Law is completely outfitted for diving in the beautiful Galapagos Islands. Nitrox is available for certified Nitrox divers. Snorkeling gear and wetsuits are also available onboard.
