They are the ugliest things I have ever set my eyes on and the owners call them by such an elegant name, cruise liners. They are cubes stuck together in stepped rows, like kids' chunky Lego. Relatively speaking, Lego would be more attractive, as each of those cubes are likely to be in a bright primary colour. The modern cruise ship is no more than sterile blocks with portholes, stuck on a barge base. Some of them tower on the horizon in the most fearsome manner, forcing you to view their displeasing line. Seeing this massive torso against a boat or ship of more manageable visual proportions, puts these enormous motels on water into perspective.
If you peer into this picture you might just see a boat, not very small by every day standards, but barely visible on this horizon. Look to the left of the picture; there is a white high rise land-based construction, and even that appears to be deferring to the monstrous floating top heavy barge, which is euphemistically called a cruise liner.
There is a white colossus looming up behind this delightful harbour. The water craft here greatly contrast with the cruise ship, and pleasingly, soften its outline.
