    Following the Queens Elizabeth last week, we had the Arcadia today.
    She dropped in Osaka on her way from Nagasaki to Honolulu.
    How happy and fortunate we are to receive such elegant ships one after another in this good season !
    Please let me share a set of my photos again to enjoy.
    Thanks !

    Thanks Terry, Wayne and Jim for your kind posts !
    About 30 cruise ships, including Diamond Princess and Quantum of the Seas, are scheduled to dock in our port this year.
    Thinking it was 20 last year and 10 two years ago, I may have more chances to take pictures.
    Please keep in touch.
    Thanks !

    Thanks NFN and Wayne for your kind posts.
    I'm feeling the half of Osaka population are coming from China, Korea and many other countries for these a few years :)

    I have only been on a few cruise ships, and when I got home each time I had more pictures of the ship I was on than anything else. Sad I know. I also pestered the daylights out of any officer I could find to get tours of the engine rooms and bridge etc. Usually worked! You would think I would want to build ship models but I find them considerably more fiddly than aircraft. I do enjoy climbing all over them though! Almost got banned from the USS North Carolina because I kept "not seeing" keep out signs and wandering into areas of the ship that were off limits to visitors.
