Back to the Great Escape

with one comment

Welcome back to the cruise. Above is a shot of the pool deck of the Oasis of the Seas.

Just for comparison, this deck is part of a ship that is more than twice as big as a US Navy Nimitz Class aircraft carrier. It is wider, longer, and, in terms of displaced tons, is more than twice the size of, say, the Ronald Reagan.

It doesn’t have any nuclear reactors or aircraft, but it does have a helicopter landing pad and a whole lot better chow.

Here is the crawler on the Promenade deck. And you thought Fox News did it right. Sorry. This might as well be Times Square.

And here is the only automobile I have ever seen on a cruise ship. You can watch people taking pictures of it, and pictures of their families leaning on it, all day long. And if you are up early enough, you can see crew polishing it.

Well, that’s it for now. Lots more photos to come.
