Images:  Our Favorite Souvenirs

As we travel, most of us take pictures that often become our favorite sourvenirs.  Click on the camera to see our favorite image of the day.  This page is here so that we can share some of the images that we capture and we can all enjoy them.  Some images are of ships and ports, others are of places, objects, and people we see and meet during our cruises and other travels.  Images are generally changed every day.  They have been reduced in size to allow for quick loading on the site.  Images remain the property of the photographer.
