Walking the Deck in St. Maarten, Dutch West Indies


Good morning,

Today's images are from my afternoon walk around deck 4 of Freedom of the Seas while we were tied up in St. Maarten, Dutch West Indies. 
This is the commercial side of the port.
I get a kick out of these windmills.  I believe it's only about two years since I first saw them here.
 It is a looooong walk around the ship.
 I'm getting closer to the front of the ship so closer to these cranes moving shipping containers.
 On the opposite side of the ship I see a Celebrity ship also in port.  Celebrity Cruise Line is owned by Royal Caribbean so this is a "cousin" ship. ;)
 Now I've made the tour around the deck.  I hope you enjoyed walking with me and seeing what I can see.

All the best,
Lois

neat to see the shipping business. so much trade going on that we don't even think about.

Looks like they park you in a pretty industrialized part of the island. I didn't see much tourism related stuff.

I enjoyed the tour. I can't wait to go on another cruise with my hubby.

That is a long walk and looks quite enjoyable with the views of land and sea. Have a great day Lois. Pamela

I really do enjoy seeing what you see, even though I don't always comment.

So do you take a daily "flyby" just to check on everything.

On islands where all the fuel has to be imported I bet the windmills may pay for themselves.
