A nice sunset from Pacific Princess as she heads across the Atlantic

to Fort Lauderdale after her season in the Med.

She then does a cruise "up the Amazon" ,

before heading down this way in Jan/Feb.

I noticed that the ferry like boat is at white bay again. I wonder what it does, like which area it provides service to.:D

I have seen Sydney Ferries moor plenty of their craft here , not for passengers though ! You would think ..ship in = ferry in, but that does not happen :(

Unlucky to miss the fjords in beautiful sunshine. :D

BTW, why is it labelled bridge cam / wedding cam?

 

If you click on "wedding cam" you get a lovely shot of the wedding chapel which most Princess ships seem to have.

Sun Princess in Bay of Islands.

You can just make out a tender heading back to the ship on the LH side of the pic.

Thanks for posting the pics, I didn't realise it was so small.

Yes, a lovely place for a visit, the ship looks like it is moored a long way out.:D

It looks a long way from the pic , but its only about a 10 minute tender ride.The ships used to come a lot further in , but many years ago when one pulled up its anchor , it also pulled up the electrical cable and cut most of Northland off till they fixed it. The spot where you see the ship is now the official anchorage for cruise ships in the Bay of Islands..:)

David, that's the first cam shot I think I've seen of Wineglass Bay (top of this page). They appear to get pretty close to land. :)

The photo may be deceptive as we were there on the Solstice (Oct 2013) and would imagine using a similar location. The Sun just looked much further out.:D

Last Feb when we were there on Sun Princess, the Carnival Spirit was there at the same time. Everyone fitted in - don't know where! :D

Santas extra sleigh???

Heres an unusual one.You dont often see other ships in bridge cam shots especially when they are at sea. Heres one from the busy Caribbean...being all red it looks like Santa has called on the help of shipping with an extra sleigh which is heading for Florida with all the goodies on board..:D:D
