The largest cruiseship ever to enter Gloucester harbor! To give you an idea of her 935' length, she is 135' longer than the Jodrey Fish Pier! 2104 of her passengers were seen all over downtown while many went on whale watch cruises and other tours throughout the Cape Ann area. After I finished a fishing vessel offload early in the morning I headed out in my boat to get a close-up view. I felt like a guppy puppy looking up at this majestic behemoth!
