Merry Christmas!!!! I have a new runabout!

Not really. I am back at Water Island, USVI. The island is about 3/4 of a mile from the St. Thomas cruise docks and as such I get to witness these behemoths arrive and depart. Last week brought the Queen Mary 2 and the largest cruise ship in the world....Oasis of the Seas.

As you can see from the photos both are different. The Oasis has a huge stage in the stern surrounded by rock climbing walls. Have been told by guests on the ship the davit looking devices on the stern are actually moving diving platforms for one of the water oriented shows.

Never been on a cruise ship but must say they are impressive as they steam by in the morning!

It doesn't seem like there are enough life boats for that monster of a ship??
