Photographer's Note

Even large cruise ships become small between the high mountains and in the dramatic scenery surrounding Flεm.
In 2009, there were 125 large cruise ships that visited Flεm.
The ship in the picture, Costa Mediterranea was here 6 times last year.
Costa Mediterranea is a Spirit class cruise ship operated by Costa Cruises. She was constructed at the Kvaerner Masa-Yards (currently Aker Finnyards) in Helsinki, Finland at a cost of over 400 million euros. Her design, like sister ship Costa Atlantica's, was derived from Carnival Cruise Lines' Spirit Class ships (Carnival Spirit, Carnival Pride, Carnival Legend and Carnival Miracle). On June 16, 2003 she departed Wed her maiden voyage from Genoa to Spain and Portugal.

Her public rooms, like the ten floor high maschera d'Argento Atrium, were inspired by Italy's 16th and 17th century Palazzi and decorated two reflect the ship's motto "Mai visto niente di simile" (You've never seen anything like it). The twelve decks are named after mythological and historical characters: Circe, Tersicore, Bacco, Teseo, Orfeo, Narciso, Prometeo, Pegaso, Armonia, Cleopatra, Pandora and Medea.
