After I took this picture, the police chased me away – “security area.”
Said I could take ALL the pix I wanted in any other port – just not this one.
Except for the launch and lifeboat, this could be a fancy apartment building!

On her voyage from Finland to Fort Lauderdale, in December 2009, they hit some very heavy seas, and the protective bars they'd placed to protect the life boats actually didn't manage to protect the first lifeboats. So, they re-engineered the drawings and sent more bars to be welded on to protect the lifeboats in future.
Notice the rack for the missing lifeboat.
The party’s over
Driving away at dawn
