P & O Pacific Sun Cruise Diary

P & O Pacifis SunSince so many of you read the posts I wrote about the Caribbean Princess cruise we took last spring -- although no one (except Da Nator) left a comment -- here's a link to another cruiser's blogpost.

It's by Manny from Melbourne, Australia. He and his mate Andrew sailed on the P&O Pacific Sun's cruise of the South Pacific in June 2006. Many different tropical islands and apparently even more tropical drinks.

By the way, both the P&O and the Princess cruise lines are owned by Carnival Cruise Lines. And the P&O Pacific Sun was the Carnival Jubilee from the time it was launched in 1986 until it was re-christened for the Australian market in 2005.Carnival also owns Holland America Line, Cunard Line, Seabourn Cruise Line, Costa Cruises and Windstar Cruises.

Web Cams At Sea -- Cruise Cams

The images aren't always very sharp, but when you go to you can see live views from the Bridge Cams of 73 different cruise ships. The shot below is the view earlier this afternoon from the bridge of the Diamond Princess. And sometimes there are pics from the Wedding Chapels, too.

Cruise Cam.

The site also lists the basic stats of each ship and shows the views of PortCams from around the world or at least the part of the world where cruise ships go.
