1. Silver Whisper emerges from the early morning fog - taking the prize as first cruise ship of the 2013 season.
The Veendam followed then proceeded east and north of George's Island, allowing Silver Whisper to slip into pier 23.
2. Veendam follows by about a mile to tie up at pier 20.
Comparing today's photo of Veendam with the one posted yesterday, you will see the added "duck tail" at the stern, and more cabins high on the after deck. Not an improvement in appearance!
