Ms Deutschland

visited Killybegs yesterday with 530 passengers and 220 crew members.   I’m surprised that the ship had that many people on it.  The cruise ship looked a lot smaller from the ones I normally seen at other places.   It left around 7pm and is now headed to Galway.  The ship was here for ten hours and it was rainy and foggy most of the day.

  1. Hi Bill.

    Nice ship, too bad for the people that it was foggy.

  2. We have had a lot of rain and fog too. This is an awesome pic of the ship.

  3. Love your new header. Looks like a much larger and more interesting place than Moville (although I like Moville a lot). That is a smaller cruise ship but I guess they figure it's like a sardine can and just stuff everybody in to it! :)

  4. Rainy and foggy comes to mind when thinking on Ireland. Great shot.

  5. I am surprised to see all those huge ships all around Europe. My objection is they have so many people on board that when they disembark at a touristic place is overfloaded with people in no time. It is not pleasant for everyone at all anymore.

  7. I love your photo! I like going to the Port Of Tampa and watching all the cruise ships come and go.

  8. 550 people on a cruise ship actually is quite manageable, from a passenger's point of view; however, it doesn't look like a terribly large vessel. Perhaps it is just the angle of the photograph that makes it look quite small? Fog is fine, if you are on land, but I think it is quite scary if aboard and on a sea voyage. Interesting but not too much fun .

  9. Seems a bit strange for me to think of a cruise ship in Ireland . . .
    I love the inside of your country . . .
    To walk about, hike, discover . . .
    So much to see . . . love visiting with “your” people too.

  10. Looks foggy and cold.
    I hope they brought some warm some clothes with them.

    I wish to be a passenger like this, just relax and see / explore many new places.

  11. Welcome back Bill. I missed your daily offerings! Glad the move went so quickly and well.

    It does seem a small ship for so many people. Bet it appears bigger up close.

  13. I'm glad to see you are back and that your move went well! That is quite a photo of the ship. I wonder if the passengers enjoyed their visit.

  16. I don't like big cruise ships, but I do like smaller ones. I will be on a cruise ship next week that takes 930 passengers and goes up the Atlantic coast of Norway to the Arctic Circle and then crosses the North Sea to Scotland and England.

    1. What cruise line? Ever take Silver Seas? Great cruise line we too to Alaska last June. No more than 500 passengers; that's the size I really, really like!

  17. This may look small by comparison because those larger ships can hold up to five times as many passengers. They're really monsters.
