SS Emerald Seas is beautifully shown here entering Government Cut, the final approach to the port of Miami.
So many cruise ships use the cut locals refer to “The Liner Parade” and the cafe at the mole (pier) head is quite famous (nice too when I was there…)

A very personal painting, I,  Gordon Frickers sailed on this ship from Miami in 1989 with a group of passenger ship enthusiasts. I enjoyed my cruise, the cabins were spacious, the old ship spotlessly clean, the food good and ambiance relaxed.

Miami was quite an experience too…

Built in 1944 as a ‘Liberty’ ship P design, a standard design for troop movements, by 1989 she had changed appearance several times and name 7 times but still boasted her original steam engines of which her engine room crew were very proud and said “you can do so much more with steam engines, the ironing for instance!
