Gallery of Cruise Ships which call at RHODES
(please have patience when these are loading)

The photographs, either taken by myself or my Wife, Anne,on this and the following pages are of a variety of Cruise ships that regularly call at Rhodes (Rodos) in the summer months, many of which call on a weekly basis. Some are modern vessels, characterised by what I refer to as 'slab-sided', that is to say they do not have the sheer and lines of the 'classic' vessels. Other ships were former passenger liners, some quite old in liner terms but given a new lease of life as cruise ships at the lower end of the holiday cruise market.
