A Floating City?

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 23 November 2015 in Transportation and Portfolio.

This is the Star Princess cruise ship docked in Whittier, Alaska. This was the view we saw prior to boarding for our seven-day cruise. It makes one wonder how it manages to float.

Many of you commented how high up I must have been when taking the two previous photos. I was on the top deck of this ship.

Photo captured September 12, 2015.

Perhaps not a city, but certainly a floating apartment complex. Never been on one, probably never will.

A floating city is exactly how my husband describes the ships we have been on. Looks like Princess cruise ship.
