Going on a cruise, while not totally conducive to photography, does have its benefits. I'm an early riser and my habit would be to get up about 5 and go out on deck for an hour walk before breakfast. Some ships these days have tracks about a quarter mile in length around an upper deck. I would usually be alone, except for the crew washing down the entire ship. On this trip, we were with a group of 10 other friends seeing London, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Tallin, St. Petersburg, Moscow, Helsinki, and Goteborg, Sweden.
