I have always had a fascination about these giant cruise ships, a kind of awe mixed with horror at the thought of being trapped on such a thing for long periods of time with people you might not actually like.
Once on board you realise the scale of these things is huge and with around 3000 guests maybe there was enough people to ensure at least a handful are bearable.
When I found out the Worlds largest ones now came to Barcelona I pitched a story to a magazine and they accepted.
It turned out that they have time set aside for people who come to visit, usually a few hours before sailing. So instead of having the freedom to explore we were hurried around the vast spaces,nooks and crannies not allowing me much time to contemplate more interesting shots, a shame really, the whole ambiance of 4 star hotel attached to glitzy, rather tacky shopping mall offered countless opportunities.Lee Harris | Filed under: Architecture, Editorial | No Comments »
