Default I found a really good rate on this ship....

First port of call...............

Europa point lighthouse tour!

















Not its usual port, that’s for sure
A Liberian cargo ship named Fedra broke into two parts after run*ning aground along the coast at Europa Point.
British and Spanish helicop*ters and sea ves*sels rescued the 31 crew members during a heavy storm.

Yes, I have eliminated the fuel surcharge as gas has come down to follow suit with Carnival.

Looking closely at the picture I get an idea that possibly part of its cargo consisted of washing machines?

If so, betcha' can get a whole lot of 'em real cheap once the surf subsides somewhat.

But even with that major crash, how could those appliances end up there?

Trip,

No -- the ship has broken in two. The stern is along the port-side of the bow!

Maybe this is where washing machines go to commit suicide?

THAT'S a female driver for sure.
Must've thought the lighthouse was a "blue light special" at K-Mart.
