Default Photos of four cruise ships in Auckland!

During the 2011 Rugby World Cup which New Zealand hosted, Auckland hosted 4 cruise ships to act as floating hotels during the quarter-finals, semifinal and finals of the Rugby World Cup in October 2011.

Here are these photos I took when all 4 where in on Sunday, 16 October 2011

Coming in to Auckland on the ferry:
(You can just start to make out all the ships!)





All 4 cruise ships:



Orion with Volendam backside!





Close up on the Orion!,
(She tinny compared to the other 3 who where there!)



I don't know why they put Orion on Bledisloe Wharf, could they not have put her on the other side of Princes or Caption Cook Wharf's?!

If it was four medium size ships like what we had and like a Princess sister let say, then I don't know how Auckland would cope.
