All my life I have been interested in ships. May be it's because my father was a sailor, who sailed all over the world especially in WWII. When my father came back home we always went to welcome him on his ship. He then showed us around. I once saw the engine-room, but was too young to be interested in engines. I liked his cabin and bathroom with a bath that contained salt water. When he left after a week or so we didn't go with him, because he took a cab to the harbour.
One of the things I'd like to do, is to make a voyage along the Norwegian coast. I shall have to go by cruise ship. A cruise ship is very different from an ocean liner, the latter is of a higher standard and built to protect passengers and crew against rough weather. But an ocean liner can be converted into a cruise liner with all kind of facilities and offering the same amenities as on the cruise ships.
A cruise ship or cruise liner is a passenger ship used for pleasure voyages, where the voyage itself and the ship's amenities are a part of the experience, as well as the different destinations along the way. Transportation is not the prime purpose, as cruise ships operate mostly on routes that return passengers to their originating port, so the ports of call are usually in a specified region of a continent."!
