While I was enjoying Freedom Beach, near Patong, I spied a Cruise Ship in the bay! Now that's a tempting target to explore! They always look huge when your eyes see them, but in a camera, they're a distant small object. Your brain sees things on the horizon much bigger than they actually are. But I can send the drone out take a look.
As I get closer, it looks very familiar. Same mini golf course, same pools, same climbing wall up the same smoke stack... it is! It's a Royal Caribbean cruise ship, remember the cruises that Indo Thai Tours had on discount last year? This is the very same cruise liner.
You can see it's using its engines to hold its position, cruise ships like to stay near Patong if the weather permits, but it has no suitable dock, so they hold in the bay and ferry people on and off with smaller boats.
