The Independence of the Seas was in port in Southampton.
She's HUGE!

4375 passengers.
1360 crew members.
3580 cabins and suites.

5 bars, 4 elevators, 3 swimming pools, 9 hole miniature golf course, ice skating rink, and a full size boxing ring..

You can even get married on board.

My Lordy...That Is One Big Ship!
I'm not sure I would want to be on such a HUGE Ship...If something were to happen....Well, you know what I mean?

That would scare me.
I grew up in a town half that size and I thought that was even too big.

They do get some huge ships in dock...in fact I used to work for the former National Dock Labour Board as a Secretary in Southampton, so you have been on my home ground:)

Wow! That is a biggy!
With the negative news about cruise ships this year I might be reluctant to travel on one, but I know lots of people who love it!

Wednesdays are good for me (usually) email me and lets make plans for tea!

That is some ship - I am no sailor so do not envy the people on board!

We came very close to booking a cruise for our anniversary this year, but finally decided on a trip to New Orleans, instead. Damn, that's a big ship!

This sounds like a Royal Caribbean cruise ship, Sham, and if so, I know basically what it's all about, as you know by now. Lately I've been down-sizing, however.... :)

Tee-hee, we used to call those ships the __ of Disease. They're great ships though, like being in the West Edmonton Mall!
