Sorry Deb, no pictures of the FLAVIA. Glad you and everyone else truly enjoyed them...makes my day! And THANKS for all the kind comments. That is the about the majority (sans too much repetition) from just the one little box I had in storage, and not even those I have pasted into photo albums. Got some cool pics from St. Thomas in the late 70's as well as more from overseas.

Unfortunatley that is all the ones I got this time around. May have to rent a car in February and drive down myself to get the rest of them. Would love to see more of everyone elses in the coming year!

One final picture as we head off into this last sunset of 2010. Easy enough ship to name, right? Enjoy

I know what you mean! That is the first time I have used the scanner in this manor scanning nearly 80 pictures and then re-sizing them to download on to CT.

Got another group coming next week of NAVY pictures, just the ships though, and some of the things I saw in my years in service. Wont be extensive as this last effort but maybe 30-40 pictures.

Thank you again for posting all the pics. I know many of us are enjoying them immensely. I also know just how much work this must have been, and the time that it took.

It's a great way to start off 2011!

Again thanks for these photos! Looking at many of these wonderfully unique ships is like going to a classic car show.

In comparison 'shipspotting' today can be about as exciting as visiting your local Toyota dealer-pretty boring IMO.

WOW!!! What a treat to see all of those ships in Miami and Nassau from the 70's and 80's. The Emerald Seas was the very first cruise ship I ever took a cruise on, although I had the opportunity (back in the day) to board with my grandparents before they took some of their many cruises including Anglina Lauro, Federico C, Fairwind, Vistafjord, and Nordic Prince just to name a few. Indeed....what a wonderful way to end 2010 with such lovely photos of lovely ships. Like Grant said....I think those were the best years of cruising...and the sign DMWNC1 posted from the port of Miami really did say it all. I was probably there that day myself!

Have a Happy 2011 everyone! Take care and God Bless.

John

Thank you for posting these pictures. It's good to see images of the ships that so many people post about here.

One question: what's the Chandris ('X') ship in the Miami set? I know about Galileo/Meridian, but that's obviously a different X ship at Miami.

That would be Britanis. Mind you, there were 'some' other 'different' Chandris ships beside her and Galileo too .

And a beautiful ship she was too! (At least on the outside.) I saw her at the very end of her career, in February 1994, at the ripe old age of 62!

There were quite a number of Chandris ships. I think I am right in saying that The Azur, now Royal Iris, is the only one still sailing?

I think the former Azur is the only ship that sailed under the Chandris banner to still be sailing, though Horizon and Zenith were definitely built for Chandris, when Celebrity was still 100% owned by Chandris. Now I think by the time the Century trio had been built, Chandris had entered into an agreement with Overseas Shipholding Group, which led to joint ownership of Celebrity, prior to the eventual RCCL takeover.

Thanks for taking the time to post all of these wonderful photos. So many amazing ships. Even though I love the amenities that the modern cruise ships offer, the older classics are by far the most attractive ships.

Ooooh, keep them coming. Happy feet dancing here. I can't get enough. I think I found a way to get my photos on here and I'll see what I can scan to add to the euphoria of enjoyment here.

I really appreciate these photos too! Talk about memory lane...wow, some of those ships I had nearly forgot about. Brings back fond memories from when I use to visit the ships in Miami...I would ship-hop and sometime see up to three-four ships on a given day. Thanks again for taking the time to post all these photos!

David, your pics are absolutely wonderful, and I thank the good Lord that I was able to travel on some of those classic ships! And I confess, I stole the shot of the QE2 coming up the Ashley River in Charleston to use as my current wallpaper.
