Carnival Glory - back again

1. A sleek looking Carnival Glory sails well north of George's Island under glowering skies in advance of the first named tropical storm of the season.

Carnival Glory made its first call for 2013 today The ship is a regular and has become familiar in Halifax. Noted for its clean lines and absence of "graffiti" style hull paint, it presents a quiet clean look. At 110, 239 gross tons it is a big ship for Halifax. It was built in 2003 and is registered in Panama (most cruise ships seem to be registered in the Bahamas these days).
All the cruise lines are suffering from bad publicity these days, but judging by the numbers of people enjoying the sights in Halifax today, cruises are still selling.
On departure the ship headed well north of George's Island, and went much further up into the harbour than most ships do before turning to head outbound east of George's Island.
