Big ship at Station Pier
This morning on the drive to work I noticed there was a big ship docked at Station Pier (in Port Melbourne).
Turns out it’s the Diamond Princess, which is in Melbourne for the day. The ship is apparently two and a half times bigger than the Titanic. And the regular at Station Pier, The Spirit of Tasmania (1 & 2) is so much smaller than the Diamond Princess.
Today during my lunch break, I decided to walk to Sandridge Beach (not far from Station Pier), to take a look at the Diamond Princess. And to my surprise there were a lot of people there as well, looking at the ship. It’s a massive ship.
This morning I saw a Channel 7 helicopter fly over and very close to the ship. There were also about 4 or 5 buses parked on the Pier near the head of the ship.
You should be able to see the ship from Elwood/St Kilda beach when you look towards Port Melbourne.
