It’s been a while since I did one of these. This image was posted by Andrew Sassoli-Walker on his Facebook time stream yesterday, and I really liked it. It shows Ventura proceeding down Southampton Water, catching some late sunshine with rain clouds (and that rainbow!) behind her. I gather it was pretty wet down there […]

Snatched images #'s 9 & 10

Why oh why aren’t there any reliable webcams in Southampton harbour – it would seem to be an excellent site for one, with the constant traffic up and down the harbour. I have to make do with snatched images from ship cameras instead. So here are a couple, grabbed at just after 2pm today, 9 […]

Not a ‘snatched image’ in the way the others have been, e.g. pulled from webcams or video streams, but snatched in the sense that I had to take this quickly. I happened to be in Liverpool at a meeting in the Liver Building today. I knew that Black Watch was on a turnaround at the […]

This is the moment the champagne bottle smashed on Britannia’s side. (I really did snatch this image: it was posted in the P&O Cruises Facebook page by ‘Dave Monk’. I don’t know how he grabbed it. But I acknowledge his authorship of the image.)

It’s been a slow week. It’s been so slow, in fact, that I had drafted a whole post (just to post something – anything) on the subject of the forthcoming refit for Arcadia, and how it will differ from what we were first told last year; but then I remembered that I’d already done just […]

This is obviously the wreck of the Costa Concordia, taken from a from a webcam on Isola del Giglio. Not an especially dramatic image in itself, except that perhaps we have got used to it: that’s the sunken wreck of a big cruise ship, 30 people are known to have died in the sinking and […]

Not the greatest of pictures, but that’s a bottle of champagne and that’s Royal Princess in the background!

Snatched Images: #1, Tromso

I don’t spend all my time looking at cruise line websites – honestly – but I do so occasionally, and (where they exist) the page(s) showing the webcam images are one of the places I like to look. Most of the time the webcam images from the ships are not great, but occasionally you do […]
