Capture of the “Carnival Spirit” soon before it departs the shores of Sydney. Opposite dwarfed by the ship is the Sydney Opera House.

Carnival Spirit was the first Spirit-class cruise ship for Carnival Cruise Lines. She was also the first new “Fun Ship” to sail to Alaska and Hawaii. Eighty percent of the cabins are on the outside of the ship, and of these outside cabins, 80% have balconies. In January, 2012, Carnival Spirit went to dry dock and was fitted with some of the latest that cruisers want to have, including Carnival Waterworks (Waterpark at Sea), and the steepest waterslide at sea, a new creation, Green Thunder

I am a passionate Amateur nature and wildlife photographer and like to dabble in all forms of photography. I find each photographic discipline presents its own challenges and rewards when you get it right. I also am a volunteer photographer for the RSPCA in NSW. I am a Nikon man and have just migrated to full frame however there are a number of spots left for additional lenses.

    Simply an awesome shot Steve, great perspective!

  • Thanks so much Mark. I couldn’t believe the size of the beast and needed a reference point. The opera house was convenient.
