Default New cruise line debuts

New cruise line debuts in St Petersburg, Florida

A new cruise line has just debut in St. Petersburg; this new line, the "Victorian" will be doing short excursions in the Gulf of Mexico due to the fact that speeds are a bit slow.

For a picture of the new line:




Obviously, I am attempting to be humorous, but I thought you all would enjoy this picture of this house being moved in a not so typical manner.

Dina, It looks like the tower room will be under construction once it gets to the bridge.

recreational activities will be limited to the following:

chimney climbing on deck 3
bungee jumping from tower deck
belly flop contest will be held off the balcony; however, all contestants must be strong swimmers able to catch back up to the ship

I saw that on t.v. Boy, what a lot! Must have been a high asking price for the property with water surrounding the house.

Giggle giggle that's a good one.

At least formal night pictures are on a true victorian stairway.

Actually, there is no buffet. Instead, there's a drive-thru on the right side....

I like the balcony but I'm thinking the fighting over the deck chairs will be intense.

line dancing lessons on the "veranda" deck; however, all participants must "tie off" to the railing; including the instructors per OSHA requirements
