It’s Norwegian Jewel.  An insider’s view was featured here on this blog a few months back.

Seeing the flashy scene around this lifeboat puzzled my naked eyes.

Any week now, Norwegian Breakaway will be replacing Jewel.

All fotos earlier this month by Will Van Dorp.

Here was 20.  And this first foto is in fact mine:  16 m pilot boat America eastbound in the KVK last week.  But the rest of these fotos come thanks to G. Justin Zizes Jr, who earlier this weekend

had a berth on Norwegian Jewel on a “cruise to nowhere,” aka a large ship gallivant on the high seas.  Justin caught these fotos from a balcony at an hour that I’m guessing most on board were asleep.   Arrival,

Many thanks to Justin for these fotos.

 

Those Janus heads the other day startled me because they were so utterly divergent. The year is well on its way, the old has fallen away, and in looking over photos from last summer, I’ve been noticing partners, pairs in synch. Auspicious signs for the year ahead, I hope?

Kayakers, swimmers, terrapins, stripers, sea jellies… see them above headed up the East River? See some of them? Actually, I’ve seen terrapin swimming around under the piers more often than I’ve seen swimmers in the East River.

I don’t know what type of sailboat this is, but they’ve equal belly in their sails as they race toward Ellis Island and the next tack. Below a pair of McAllister tugs bring Eagle upriver. Interesting info and photos of the Eagle can be found at that link.

Below are a pair of Norwegian Cruise LinesNorwegian Dawn and Norwegian Jewel— plus one leaving Jersey City’s Goldman Sachs to starboard and outbound. Actually a third smaller NCL ship follows them. A guess that makes triplets, and I’m getting drifting. That may be a good omen.
