If you are curious about any of these vessels you can usually find lots more info on the web by Googling the name of the ship. To us, ship names are one of the most interesting parts of the maritime world. Would you ever have thought of calling your shipping company Wisdom Line?

Thanks for stopping by John's Island.

  1. Wonderful assortment of vessels with blue water and skies. I have been on several cruises with this cruise line. Not planning on going again as having too many problems.

  3. Hi John

  4. Great shots of these ships. When I saw the title I sure wasn't thinking ships when I saw "Celebrity Solstice." It's a month away, after all! :-)

  7. Hello John!:) Thank you for your visit, and the lovely comment. Yes indeed, it's so pleasurable sharing something beautiful,and that's just what I found here. Beautiful images of all these maritime vessels, plus the gorgeous views, and I'm impressed that you know all the names of these ships. I live in Portugal, which has a great seafaring history, and hubby and I sometimes go to the docks in Porto, to watch the liners and boats coming into port. I will follow your blog with pleasure.:)

  11. Wisdom Line. Not bad for a name.
    John, are you living near the dock or you just go there for the shoots? Because I think it's lovely to live near an interesting and beautiful location.

  12. Wisdom line is a good name! I hope the company lives up to its name! Enjoyed your photos of the ships, especially the ship with the moon in the background.

    Thank you for your recent comment. I'd like to return the question you asked: what do you think of the election at this stage?
