It’s been quite a week with the arrival of Quantum of the Seas, and my first photos taken of the Eric McAllister. Golden sunsets and fog made things more interesting.

I was only able to get a couple of photos of Quantum (she’s larger the Norwegian Breakaway) at Port Liberty, Bayonne through the morning haze, but I am hoping for good weather when she sails this weekend.
