It was amazing walking in between these two humungous ships!

Roll-on/roll-off (RORO or ro-ro) ships are vessels designed to carry wheeled cargo such as automobiles, trucks, semi-trailer trucks, trailers or railroad cars that are driven on and off the ship on their own wheels. This is in contrast to lo-lo (lift-on/lift-off) vessels which use a crane to load and unload cargo.

RORO vessels have built-in ramps which allow the cargo to be efficiently "rolled on" and "rolled off" the vessel when in port. While smaller ferries that operate across rivers and other short distances often have built-in ramps, the term RORO is generally reserved for larger ocean-going vessels. The ramps and doors may be stern-only, or bow and stern for quick loading.

Various types of RORO vessels include ferries, cruiseferries, cargo ships, and barges. New automobiles that are transported by ship are often moved on a large type of RORO called a Pure Car Carrier (PCC) or Pure Car Truck Carrier (PCTC).

Elsewhere in the shipping industry cargo is normally measured by the metric tonne, but RORO cargo is typically measured in units of 'lanes in meters' (LIMs). This is calculated by multiplying cargo length in meters by the number of decks and by its width in lanes (lane width differs from vessel to vessel and there are several industry standards). Aboard PCCs cargo capacity is often measured in RT or RT43 units which is based on a 1966 Toyota or by car equivalent units (CEU).

The largest RORO passenger ferry is MS Color Magic, a 75,100 GT cruise ferry that entered service in September 2007 for Color Line. Built in Finland by Aker Finnyards, she is 223.70 m (733 ft 11 in) long, 35 m (114 ft 10 in) wide and can carry 550 cars as well as 1270 lane meters of cargo

The RORO passenger ferry with the greatest car-carrying capacity is the Ulysses (named after a novel by James Joyce) which is owned by Irish Ferries. She entered service on 25 March 2001 and operates between Dublin and Holyhead. The 50,938 GT ship is 209.02 m (685 ft 9 in) long and 31.84 m (104 ft 6 in) wide, and can carry 1342 cars and 4101 lane meters of cargo

Cozumel, Mexico


Naturally, at every port we saw, there were ships from other brands of cruise line. This one is a Disney ship we saw at Cozumel, Mexico.

I thought I would change the venue for today's shot. While capturing a more industrial scene, the geese flew by emphasizing, to me, how we have to share the world with each other.

My friend tells me this was a Korean ship being taken to the Philippines to be broken up when it came free of its ropes and grounded on the rocks in southern Pingtung.

This ship attempts to dwarf Mt. Rainier in the background..... no easy task. This is from the Port of Tacoma in the spring of 2013 and it is a single-shot-HDR thing using Nik's HDR software. The polarizer really brought out the color here. Those ramps aren't for bringing lunch in - big trucks drive in and out of the ship on them!

This ship tours visitors around Lake Biwa, the largest lake in Japan, located in Shiga Prefecture, our new home.

Notice that, though she's fully loaded with containers, she's riding as if she's empty... I'm guessing she's carrying empties back to get refilled.


I think container ships are beautiful anyway, but all the different colored containers on this one was very striking to both myself and my lady (aka the Hunchback of the Jeremiah O'Brien).


Cool History!! I passed 1000 views on this image, just days before its one-year anniversary... still no comments nor favorites, and it's never been in Explore as far as I know, yet so many people are seeing it. That's really cool. Thanks, everyone!!


The 293 m x 36 m MSC Poesia was early this morning on its way to Copenhagen.


This is how the Cruise Critic describes the ship:

Tastefully exuberant decor -- brass handrails on the staircases, marble countertops at reception, a waterfall in the atrium, twinkling lights on the ceiling in the theater -- means the ship is elegant but not boring. Its lounges (particularly the Zebra Bar, Il Grappolo d'Oro wine bar and Hitchcock Lounge) are charming, and the well-appointed, color-splashed cabins make it feel more like an upscale hotel than a cruise ship. Of course, you'll still find the standard cruise-ship offerings like pools, nightly entertainment and kids' activities.
