The Marina's in town

An Italian built medium-size cruise ship, just two years old

 
 
 
 
All 66,084 tonnes has been nudged gently alongside the International Passenger Terminus.  Waiting to sail next, to Melbourne/Victoria, Hobart/Tasmania,  various ports in New Zealand,  Nuku' alofa (Tonga), Raratonga (Cook Island), and partying in French Polynesia.
 

239 metres (785 feet), accommodates 15 decks, 1,250 guests and 800 staff, according to Oceania Cruises site here.

Later addition:  Since some have asked in comments if I was going on a cruise.  Not for me - like Phil said, too many people, not enough birds

Not my idea of a holiday Carole. Too many people and not enough birds, but each to his own. Nice shots you took though - good enough for the tour brochure.
