Ephesus picture is best for Royal

//Ephesus picture is best for Royal

ephesus.jpgEphesus is one of the most visited ancient sites in the eastern Mediterranean, and is probably photographed millions of times every week by thousands of cruise ship passengers. From my own experience, I know how difficult it is to take a picture of the Greek and Roman ruins without getting the frame filled by the heads of fellow-tourists.
So congratulations to Christine Svircev who took this shot of the Library of Celsus which has won a competition organised by Princess Cruises to find 1,000 pictures to decorate the corridors of their newest ship, Royal Princess.
Svircev, from Illinois, USA, wins a cruise on the 3,600-passenger ship, which will debut in Southampton next summer. While on board she will be able to see the 999 other photographs which reached the final stage of the contest. All were taken by Princess passengers on cruises to destinations throughout the world.
Rai Caluori, executive vice-president of fleet operations and one of the judges said “We were amazed by the staggering number of great images that were entered in this contest. We didn’t have an easy time, but in the end we think the 1,000 photos that were selected are certainly worthy of being immortalized on the ship. We hope all the winners have a chance to sail aboard Royal Princess and enjoy discovering where their photos are displayed.”
►Another set of cruise photographs has been making the news, but for a rather different reason. A passenger who lost her iPhone while travelling on a Disney cruise was shocked to discover her pictures appearing on Facebook.
She identified the crew member she suspected of stealing the phone from a name tag on his uniform, and then created an album titled “Stolen iPhone Adventures.”
She alerted Disney Cruise Line officials, who investigated and have suspended a member of crew while further inquiries are made. The phone has been recovered and will be returned to its owner.
