she does fill out the frame nicely with her presence smile
Mary MacADNski: She fills up the dock too.

What a monster!

She would not fit in my bathtub, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Amazing that she fits into our harbour.
Wow... I've never been on one that big. I like the rocks in the photo with the ship.
Mary MacADNski: Hard mainland rocks that mean serious business.

It's over-the-top BIG, Mary. I've been on some big-uns but this one is...HUGE.
Mary MacADNski: Huge is the word. Humongous is another.
Ginormous! I would get lost on such a monstrosity
Mary MacADNski: I can't even imagine being on it.

That's as big as a town Mary!
Mary MacADNski: They filled the tourist area near the docks. I happened to be there and saw a hundred identical, little blue bags being carried by passengers, about 30 with a convention's name along with the cruise line and hundreds of other unidentified tourists.
Great song! These aren't so much ships as giant floating hotels..my idea of Hell!
Mary MacADNski: I can't imagine wanting that hell either.

That is impressive yet frighteningly large.
Mary MacADNski: A town in itself.
That is a big one, for sure
Mary MacADNski: I would get lost.

If this is what the princess looks like, I just can imagine the queen.
These ships are always impressive.
Mary MacADNski: I've seen some of the old queens and princesses having passed through Acapulco several times.

This is big, its a beauty, you would need a map to find your way on this one smile
Mary MacADNski: I'd need a map and a tranquilizer.
My word it's huge. How does one find one's cabin on one of these big things.
Mary MacADNski: Maps and the many, staff, I would think.
That is almost obscenely big! Great shot though, Mary!
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Tom. I just happened to get caught in the right place to catch some action.
Wow, Mary, that's a monster. I bet the local merchants are happy to have the business generated by the ship's passengers when they come ashore, though.
Mary MacADNski: You bet! It was really busy too. They put on two free concerts a day at Peakes Quay and I happened to be there the same time as a couple hundred tourists from the ship.
Big ship indeed! Nice!
Mary MacADNski: I believe it is the biggest that comes here.
Just a big floating hotel Mary, but they do look the part, we had two of these in Liverpool this week.
Mary MacADNski: We get smaller ones all the time but this is very large.
