How come the Europeans see everything?  :(

Porbably because we have a lot of coastline, and lots of places for vessels to berth. America has one coastline, where as Europe is amde up of islands in funny shapes to give maximum coastlines

Found this site with a cruise schedule of 2010 in the Netherlands and Belgium

http://www.cruisefans.nl/cruiseschema2010.html

and here are some translations:

Dag = day
Datum = date
Naam schip = name of ship
Rederij = shipping line
Aankomst = arrival
Vertrek = departure
Plaats = location

Maandag = Monday
Dinsdag = Tuesday
Woensdag = Wednesday
Donderdag = Thursday
Vrijdag = Friday
Zaterdag = Saterday
Zondag = Sunday

Hope this help you all  ;)

and probably because much of the ships have their home ports in Europe.

Hello...

oh how many nice ships can you see in the Real life... you don't now what you have...

I live in Croatia - Rovinj. It's a nice truristic port so i see some cruiser but there are just 4-5 them and i don't seee any other ships... just cruisers but i see a many many largest yachts....

Al ships i saw in real life ( dome of them didn't take a picture )!

Club Med 2:
WindSurf:
WindStar:
Insignia:
Nautica:
Seabourn Spirit:
Le Levante:
Seabourn Odyssey:
Royal Clipper:
The Emerald Piraeus:

But we don't have a lot of ships BUT we have can see the world's largest mega sailor ( cruiser ) ship: Club Med 2!
It is the largest sailor ship and it is wisiting Rovinj almost every weeck! I hawe a lot of picture of him in the other mobile phone i need to get them and show them to you...

But steeal the largest ship visited Rovinj is the Seabourn Odyssey! The new ship from Miammi! Somwhere about 185-190 m.

I know what is that for you... you can see largest ships with 340 meters like QM2 and other... but i like even that litle i see.

Biliarder Roman Abramovich wich is popular with his yachts ( Pelorus , Ecstasea and other ) is wisiting Rovinj every Summer with bouth his yachts! I can see Pelorus and Ecstasea every summer!
Now he is building the new world largest MegaYacht: Eclipse! She is about 170 meter... like a cruiser....
I hope he'l come next year and that i'l see the yacht...

But steal the largest ship i saw was the amasing: The Emerald Princes ower 300 m!
I saw it in Dubrovnik last yer... it's amasing. We were driving in the bus 10 minuts by here...

Some of the ships i took the picture:

Seabourn Odyssey:


Seabourn Spirit:


Wind Star:


Carinthia 7 yacht:


Sea Dweller:


Oxygen yacht:


Unknown yacht:


Another yacht:


And that's all... if i found something i'l put it again...

Good bye!

The ship that i now REALLY want to see is the Queen Elizabeth 2. Because she is the only 'Cunard Queen' i didn't had a chance to see :'( :'(

Well, she came last in 2007 but in that year i didn't had much interests in ships.
