This picture is, as most will recognize, taken from the Bridge over the Corinth Canal, in Greece. This transit was always a spectacular happening, for Passengers and crew alike.
The picture was taken by our ship’s photographer. But I had the opportunity to be with him that time, which was the only time I was allowed to do that.
The “towing lines” you see on the bow, is just a precaution, in case the ship experience a “black out”. So the tug boat is NOT pulling.
Good memories indeed.
