We are back in St. Maarten, Dutch West Indies.
I find it fascinating to watch the port activity, both the other cruise ships and the commercial activity.
This was a typical cruise ship thirty years ago. These lovely old ships are still out here, serving specialized markets and charters. Their passengers number from 150 to 300 as opposed to the ship from which I took this picture that accommodates 4,328 plus 1,400 crew.
My, has cruising changed!
