Hilo sees cruise ships coming in and out on a nearly daily basis, it seems. However, the cruise ships that I see are almost always from the Norwegian Cruise Line. Recently, I saw a new ship — the Queen Victoria of the Cunard Line. The Queen Victoria is a beautiful ship that first launched in 2007. It cost about 270 million pounds (434 million dollars) to build, and holds over 2,000 passengers. It includes such amenities as a spa, a theater and several high-end restaurants. In the foreground, another boat appears to be giving the Queen Victoria a bath.
