At one time cruise liners were designed to look sleek, eloquent and beautiful, these modern cruise ships look like barges.

I think they try and squeeze as many cabins onboard as possible, looks be damned.

Seems to me they basically are styleless hotels - as big a box of a building as possible - set on a barge.

Is it a trans-Atlantic liner?

Not the Black Falcon Pier. This is off Castle Island and is named after a Boston Fire lieutenant who was killed in the line of duty on October 1st, 1964.

I was thinking where the ship was berthed. Changed the post to reflect where it actually was when the photo was taken.

There was a second ship at the Black Falcon Cruise Terminal today. It said Carnival Splendor on the side but the Carnival site doesn't show that ship going out of Boston on a regular basis.

Hm.

Taken just after I took the still above. She had a lot to say on her way out.

Is there a way to watch the video other than through Telly? My first generation iPad won't run that app.....!

I tweeted it in haste this morning during my run from the shower to the bus. It's posted on my Instagram in the correct position.

For some reason I thought their question had something to do with the video's orientation. I thought that it may have posted sideways...

Going past on a much smaller boat. It was a beautiful day. Probably one of the last nice boating days of the season.

There is also a police boat on the opposite side making sure nobody gets too close.
