*One of the many pleasures that came about in the mid 25th century was the galactic cruise lines, with ships that now could span not only seas, but entire galaxies.
Appearing here from time to time will be some of the images I captured on many of my intergalactic holidays spent on the ships of different cruise line companies.
Of course these vessels are more floating cities than actual ships.
At the turn of the 25th century many innovations once used for battle platforms were modified to civilian uses. One such was the immense force shield/bubbles that held the atmospheres on warships.
Once these were brought into use the cruise lines of many worlds put them to use in building vast pleasure ships, so by mid century these became available to the general public.
This image captures part of the 10 mile swimming pool on the Pool Deck of Carnivalis lines new mega cruiser “Solaris Traveller”.
Some of the dimensions of the vessel are:
Length = 83 miles
Width = 15 miles
Deck Levels = 1503
Passenger capacity 156,000
She as a cruising speed of Warp 8, and 3 onboard Star- Portals.
The Portals are used for “Shore Excursions” on the many Portal Worlds she visits.
Inspired by my first cruise I took in 2010 to Hawaii*
