cruise ship Diamond Princess

departs from the port of Lyttelton, New Zealand. Below is the well-known Timeball Station:

From the upper deck of the 

Princess ship

you can see the beautiful landscape of the bay:

Similar to traditional river cruises, guests on the deck can enjoy a changing landscape of mountains and traveling sea vessels:

The shadow of the ship's superstructure looks so powerful against the muddy green water of the bay:

The weather is warm but the wind is strong. Standing on the deck can prove a difficult task, especially when the gusts are strong enough to put you off balance!

An unobstructed, 360 degree view of nothing but water, plus the gentle rocking of the ship amidst the waves is the epitome of serenity:
