  2. What a splendid vessel! You know that is another item on my wish list – a cruise. Although, not sure it would be to a cold climate. My daughter and I are looking at a Mediterranean cruise for the spring…but the vessel is majestic!

    Thank you for your visits, comments and good wishes. I too would like to send along my wishes to you and your loved ones for the holidays and the coming year. May we all prosper in health!

  4. Thanks for your comments on Glasgow Daily Photo – a very happy Christmas and New Year to you and yours too!

    I’m not a big fan of cruise ships, I think I would find a cruise a bit stifling and claustrophobic – but those ships are certainly very impressive creatures!

  10. Cool. Quite a few cruises have had troubles out this way – which goes against the legends surrounding all this.
    Very best wishes for the Christmas season and 2008.

  14. Wonderful picture.

    So nice your blog. I also love photography. Here I could see wonderful pictures. Great!!!

    Oh God, finally finished time for crazy shopping for friends and family… Last days were so busy…
    I also love singing carols during this time of the year… All of those songs bringing back good memories… heart-warming memories.

    Maybe you don’t speak and write Portuguese, but…today you can visit my blog, because I wrote in english language.

    Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones. God bless.
