I spotted this ship Amadea curled up to St.John's Harbour yesterday and just had to look her up.
Here she is in Wikipedia.
I wouldn't mind one of the two Royal Suites. You could have the other one.
She has a crew of nearly 300. More crew than the passengers and she cost $150,000,000 when first built.
I wouldn't mind sailing to Greenland on her. That would be my type of cruise. And I like to believe she's small enough not to do much damage to the environment.
Here's her schedule. Expensive.
From my rusty Latin, Amadea would mean love of the goddess or goddess love.
Ships and trains fascinate me. Always have. I see one like this and I want to board her and see where she takes me.
I apparently can at Harbour Symphony Time where one year the Amadea was part of the annual symphony, a meticulously planned sound event, conducted digitally and all boats in the harbour participate. Best heard from a distance. But magical nevertheless.
PS Isn't our harbour beautiful even on a mauzy day?
