Caribbean Princess seeks shelter while visiting Falmouth
« on: May 16, 2024, 12:34:41 PM »
"Visitors to a tiny beach in Cornwall were greeted with the surreal sight of a giant 113,000 tonnes cruise ship today (Thursday, May 16). Too big to dock in the harbour, the 952ft Caribbean Princess dropped its anchor off a small cove on the Roseland peninsula, using St Anthony Head to shelter from strong south-easterly winds whilst it tendered its passengers to Falmouth."

"With the headland offering some shelter from the south-easterly winds, the cruise ship was guided into position and dropped anchor."

Is that an odd photograph, or does anyone else see a particularly noticeable bend in the exterior balcony floors? Looks to be through all floors from deck 7 upward, about where the 600 series of cabins changes to the 700's, and does appear to include Horizon Court. It 'must' be the photograph.  :-\

The server on Princess Chatter is only showing part of the picture so the distortion in the original on the story link may be a poor rendering.
