Freedom of the Seas and Allure of the Seas in Jamaica

Good morning,

We're aboard Freedom of the Seas approaching Jamaica.  In the distance to the right of the above image is the world's largest cruise ship, Allure of the Seas.
The closer we get the larger she appears.
This is the view from the wing bridge of Freedom of the Seas.
I am ten decks above the sea so have an excellent view.

 What a gorgeous ship!
 Closer...
 Closer....
 The pilot has come aboard our ship to offer advice about the harbor to our captain.
 We have a wonderful view as we move around Allure to move into our spot at the dock.
 Allure is one ship size larger than the ship on which I am standing to take these images.
 Plenty of guests and crew were watching our arrival as we were watching them.
 We are now backing into our spot at the dock.
 ...on back!
 The size of Allure is overwhelming.
 Officers on the bridge of Allure are watching our arrival, too.
 We even got waves and cheers from the deck crew of Allure.  There are many friends among the crew from ship to ship and it is always good to see each other while in port.

This was a fabulous photo opportunity!

Enjoy,
Lois

Isn't it amazing that these ships float! I mean...just look at the size of it. It is like a floating city almost. Cannot imagine being the one to maneuver one of them into the dock/port or whatever the proper word is.
