The aerial photos
were taken by Bret Bowen's dad while Bret and his wife, Sherrie, were aboard
the Enchanted Seas sailing down the Mississippi River.
Enchanted Seas became the Universe Explorer. (Bret and Sherrie were taking photos with us on the day the New Orleans,
f/k/a Enchanted Isle, ... f/k/a S.S. Argentina, left to be
ripped apart in Alang, India.)
The photo on the
left was taken by Bret in Cozumel. It shows a good comparison in size
next to Carnival Holiday.
The photo below
shows Bret and Sherrie on the day the New Orleans left for Alang,
October 25, 2003. (Oops! I forgot. Spike, our traveling
companion, begged to be in the photo too; he's the pink one sitting on the spotlight.)
