Discovery

Cruising - be it steam (mv) or sail, can be a wonderful way to travel and explore. And so it was a glorious morning to leave Harwich, and find the 20,000 ton cruise ship, Discovery, steaming toward Shoal Waters from a mile or two away, in the North Sea. Within minutes, she had crept up on us. Suddenly, the huge vessel swung round Landguard Point and straightened up into Harwich Harbour...
PS: she has a sister ship called 'Pacific Princess' of American TV series 'Love Boat' fame and, from internet sources, I gather, was occasionally used in the series as well...
