Cruise Ship Sightings

In my travels, especially cruising as much as I have this year it is at times inevitable that I will see cruise ships other then the one that I am travelling on. As such I have also taken to going a little out of the way at times to see ships that are in a port I am near. This page is the result of these sightings, including where available a picture.

Some of the photo’s in this collection will be maybe not the ideal angle, however at times due to the position of the ship and the limited positions to capture the right photo, I do have to get creative. I have listed in alphabetical order and included details where I can about Location and time.


Carnival Splendor

I spotted Carnival Splendor, when on my Panama Canal cruise. It was Anchored just behind the MS Statendam in Cabo San Lucas.


Celebrity Century

I have seen Celebrity Century on number of occasions. This picture was taken as she was departing Vancouver. However I have also sighted her In San Diego and the Panama Canal.

Celebrity Constellation

The Celebrity Constellation was one of three cruise ships in port in Aruba, the day I was there on-board the MS Statendam. The other one was from an Asian country and was not in the best position for a photo.


Queen Mary 2
The Queens Mary 2 docked in Brisbane. Due to the size of the Queen Mary 2 she docked at Fisherman’s Island Grain Wharf, it is not so easy to get to a good location for a photo, however I managed it.

Royal Caribbean Line

Jewel of the Seas

The Jewel of the seas was in port in Fort Lauderdale. This was the half way point of my Panama Canal cruise. This was the best angle I could get, unfortunately there were obstacles in the way.

Radiance of the Seas

Another creative angle, to capture Radiance of the Seas docked in San Diego. This was taken the day after my Panama Canal Cruise ended, on the 15 May 2011.

Rhapsody of the Seas

Not the best photo, due to the inclement weather in Hilo, Hawaii, the way I was here on my Transpacific Cruise. The Rhapsody of the Seas left much earlier then the MS Volendam. 15 September 2011

I will continue to add ships as I can when I see them in ports that I am visiting. As mentioned while in Brisbane this may not always work out the best, but I will do what I can do. If there are any error’s or omissions that you notice please feel free to contact me and I will get them resolved.
