Where in the world ?


Recommended Posts

Here's another port photo which pretty clearly was not taken on a Cunard cruise. This is a frequently-visited Cunard port that I'm a bit surprised hasn't been shown on this thread before. There's not a lot to go on here when it comes to views of the port itself but I'm confident it will be identified without much difficulty.

Here's a photo of another Cunard port new to this thread (as seen during a non-Cunard cruise). This one should be pretty easy.

Based on the Lithuanian URL on the ferry (at least that's what it looked like to me) and a search of Cunard's Web site for ports visited in that country, my guess is Klaipeda, Lithuania

That's correct. But for the reduced photo resolution, it also would have been possible to make out "Nida" and "Klaipeda" on the side of the ferry.

I can see it is a tender port....but that’s about all...

 

Indeed it was a tender port for this Cunard cruise. Yet, other (smaller?) ships have docked almost right in town before.

Kotor?  We docked there on Nieuw Amsterdam and tendered on Silhouette.  EM

 

Good idea, yet the port is in a different country.

While we're working on carlmm's last puzzler, here's another photo of mine showing a Cunard port we haven't seen on this thread yet (taken from a ship on another line).

Is this Aqaba?

That's correct. I have to say I was a bit confused when I checked the details of the flag in the photo and found it wasn't the flag of Jordan. But then this wikipedia article about the Aqaba flagpole set me straight.

 That is really interesting! I only found this flag to be the flag of Hedscha, a region which it today part of Saudi-Arabia.

Let's add two different perspective to above unidentified port of mine.

One picture shows the tender dock and one the view back.
