|Cruise Ship Collection||OGO50||7/5/06 1:10 PM|
This is a work in progress and my first attempt at posting a collection of placemarks. There are currently 110 ships in the file. I will attempt to update it on a regular basis with ship info and pictures when available.
Some of the ships are identified but many are not.
All info, corrections, and ships to add to the collection will be greatly appreciated.
Recently launched, the Royal Caribbean ship Freedom of the Seas is the largest cruise ship afloat. It can be seen moored at Cozumel. Thank you Accagas!!
Registry: Bahamas Tonnage: 158,000

Don't forget Skagway and Ketchikan (both in Alaska). There's some there.
|Re: Cruise Ship Collection||OGO50||7/6/06 8:40 AM|
I do have four ships in Ketchikan, but I won't be posting ships that are in low-res areas such as Skagway.
That's another thing that makes the GE updates exciting. There's always new stuff to find.

Hi! If you want to find Royal Caribbean ship Freedom of the Seas in low resolution go:
It is under construction Aker Finnyards shipyard in my home town Turku.
Look a little bit left and you can find big white ship shape there.

|Re: Cruise Ship Collection - REGAL EMPRESS||widerberg||9/12/06 7:55 AM|
I've created a .kmz file for Imperial Majesty's REGAL EMPRESS (ex OLYMPIA, CARIBE I). She sails to Nassau from Port Everglades and usually uses one of four berths/slips at the port. She's in one of the northern ones in this iteration. She's a neat old ship, albeit a bit long in the tooth and not very well taken care of.
|Re: Cruise Ship Collection||OGO50||9/12/06 9:41 AM|
Great find!! I'll try to get it identified.
Added to the collection.

|Re: Cruise Ship Collection||ber_mflores||10/26/06 4:46 AM|
You have a placemark on Port Canaveral, Florida. The ship is not identified. Could that be Voyager of the Seas??? I can be wrong about it.
|Re: Cruise Ship Collection||OGO50||10/27/06 10:47 AM|
It could very well be the Voyager. There is also a Disney and a Carnival ship at Port Canaveral due to the recent image update. I plan to get them in the collection soon and update the rest as well.
|Re: Cruise Ship Collection||david16wb||11/1/06 7:58 AM|
2 Cruise ships noted in Key West
|Re: Cruise Ship Collection||OGO50||11/1/06 8:25 AM|
Both ships added.
|Re: Cruise Ship Collection||david16wb||11/2/06 6:45 AM|
You're welcome !! ......there are another 2 that don't appear to have been logged in Castries - St Lucia.
|Re: Cruise Ship Collection||david16wb||11/3/06 1:11 AM|
Not sure if this "Tall Ship" in Acapulco bay is a Cruiser or perhaps a Navy training vessel or something similar - any experts out there ?
|Re: Cruise Ship Collection||david16wb||11/7/06 1:42 AM|
2 more Cruise ships in Villefranche (used as the harbour for day trips to Monaco I believe). There is also a 3rd a mile or two due West docked in Nice.
|Re: Cruise Ship Collection||OGO50||11/7/06 8:57 AM|
Thanks david!! Added to the collection.

I have been looking for the ship I was on for 6 months. The Carnival Valor. Thanks for the great post
|Re: Cruise Ship Collection - FUNCHAL||OGO50||12/2/06 10:47 AM|
Thanks for the info!!
There are a total of four cruise ships in port at Helsinki. I had only one marked. I suspect that it has something to do with the recent image update. At any rate, I have eliminated several that were lost in the update and continue to add new ones.

Success in identification of 3 of your marks in the Caribbean...
looks like they are all the same ship.
St. Lucia 2 (Castries), Tortola 2 (Road Town)
and Bonaire (Town Pier at Kralendijk).
(ex Boheme - Built in Finland 1968)
Latest info we could find: owned & operated by Church of Scientology.
Apparent home port is Willemstad, Curacao.

|Re: Cruise Ship Collection||ts2426||1/20/07 1:40 AM|
Greetings OGO 50...
More for your collection.
(too much spare time lately - LOL )
smaller unmarked Cruise ships at Venice, and Cadiz.
(thought I saw Dalmacija marked previously - but no more ??)
M/S DALMACIJA (6411964)
built Pula, Croatia 1965
seen at Venice, Italy - summer 2003 ?
currently operated by Croatian Cruise Lines
More at Adriatic Cruises , and Unique World Cruises
M/S ARION (6419057)
ex Nautilus 2000, Astra I, Astra, built as Istra - 1965

currently operated by Classic International Cruises
More at: Classic International , and Unique World Cruises
|Re: Cruise Ship Collection||OGO50||1/20/07 10:01 AM|
Because of their small size (both well under 400 ft) and the lack of a pool on the Dalmacija, I hesitated to classify them as bona fide cruise ships. Hence they did not get placed into the collection.
There seems to be quite a few ships in the Mediterranian that are borderline between cruise vessels and ferries.
I'll do a little more work on them and see. The Arion at least will probably get in.
|Re: Cruise Ship Collection||toldu||2/6/07 7:38 AM|
were you say the Royal Caribbean Voyager of the Seas is thats not where its suposed to dock. its the Royal Caribbean Explorer of the Seas . I went on the Explorer of the Seas and that is were it docked.I went on the cruse in 2005 and thats when the satalite photoes were taken.

|Re: Cruise Ship Collection||diegocs||5/12/07 9:54 AM|
a great collection, I think that the costa cruiser in malaga is the "costa concordia" if the other of this class is the "costa magica" ,are Very easy to identify because it is like the carnival destiny with a different funnel. I´ve seen it too in Civitavecchia, is the same ship because costa only have two of this class for now (actually, the third one is constructed in genova) . In this port we can see too the "msc armonia". (maybe the "msc sinfonia", I´ve seen it too one of this class in Genova), isn´t the "msc lirica" nor the "msc opera", this two are in the north sea routes
Is this helpfull for you?
|Re: Cruise Ship Collection||OGO50||5/14/07 8:47 AM|
VERY helpful! Thanks!
