As I may have mentioned before, I find it very hard to get excited about AIDA Cruises ships... especially the Sphinx-class ones. There are so many, and they don't really have any individual identity at all. Still, that doesn't change the fact the exterior design of the ships is quite interesting.

I was displaying a Bruce Peter -esque paparazzing of unsuspecting bystanders for the foreground, it seems.
Upright shots seem to be in fashion for me these days.
Foreground reeds and the AIDAbella.
This one I really like.
