The World Comes to Charlottetown

The World, a cruise ship that bills itself “a ship that carries our luxury vacation residences across the ocean and seasons to the four corners of the earth” is in port here in Charlottetown today:

Expatriate Islander, bassist Ross Macdonald was a musician/resident on the ship, and has a collection of photos in his gallery if you want a look inside; you can also follow his adventures on his blog, starting last January.

The gates are drawn pretty tight down at the Charlottetown Marine Terminal where it’s tied up, so there’s no “wandering down just to have a look.” The parking lot is full of onlookers in their cars, though, even though it’s driving rain outside.
