Well, I dont understand contrast but one pic is for people ready to party and the other a wonderful rememberance of our fallin soldiers. I think Id like to pay respect first then go on the cruise...contrast or no contrast:) Happy WW and thanks for stopping by.

The Norwegian Pearl really did decorate that port hah? *s*

I'll probably never grasp how big this memorial day is until you're THERE on that day.

Floating cities scare me in a big way. I'd rather pay my respects than be trapped on one. In my humble opinion.

I like the contrast idea.

Hi!
There certainly is more interest and activity in the ship than the cemetery. Lack of interest? Thousands can live on that huge ship. Thousands are buried. We may all be guilty of neglecting the veterans.

These certainly are contrasting things...That is for sure! Life and Death, right there before our eyes! Very powerfyl Tor....

Thank You for the Thangsging Wishes....You know this is a very specific Holiday for Americans, connected to Historical Events. So, of course you would not celebrate this Holiday in Norway, or for that matter, in any other country....unless you were or are an American and feel strongly about commemorating the History involved here. The "thanks" we feel is very specific to certain events...! I will find a link for you Tor, and you can read what it is ALL about, my dear.

The ship reminds me of our cruise through the mediteranian sea.

If you learn Tango before your departure I pity Anna ! Take already an appointment with the foot doctor for her !

Huge contrast! My grandfather was a war veteran, so Remembrance/Veterans Day is a big deal to me. Too bad everyone doesn't remember what those soldiers did for us.
