This should be a hard one. Tell us where this was taken. Need City, State or Region, Country and Continent. We were on board one of the many ships that make stops in many exotic places. State the ship if you can.

If you don't like this kind of stuff I will knock it off.

I don't have a clue, but would be lost without your pictures. Please don't stop.

My guess would be Honolula (that spelling doesn't look right!), Hawaii.

How about Rio in Brazil?

And don't knock it off! Not having traveled anywhere but the Eastern Caribbean on a cruise ship , I find this exercise enchanting.

This is another view taken from the same position as the first. This may give you a better idea as to where it is.

Ray, I think Lombard is right. I compared your two pictures to images from Brisbane and Goldcoast and believe it is from

Goldcoast, Queensland, Australia

I may be totally off, but it does look a little bit like it was taken from the cruise port in Ft. Lauderdale?

I'm with RD. I was thinking this early this morning when I saw the 2nd picture. Wherever it is, it is beautiful and I want to be there.

Can't wait any longer to give answer. Lombard was right the first time. It is on top of a revolving restaurant in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. We were on the last cruise for Sky Princess before she was turned over to P & O. and became Pacific Sky.

We were with our good friends Geoff and Grace Holden who lives in Gold Coast.

Venice that is very good idea. And I will give as a prize to the first who gives the correct answer the privelage to buy me dinner here in the Orlando Area with a cold bottle of Bud lite.

Just kidding but I thought that was a good idea.
