As this issue of Ships Monthly was being prepared during the run-up to Christmas, my thoughts turned to 2019 and what the year ahead holds for the shipping industry. Several major new ferries are on order and under construction, and should come into service during the year. No doubt we will also see more new ships, bigger and better. Indeed, the next issue features the biggest cruise ships and the biggest container ships. But where are the best places from which you can see ships? We are seeking the best shipspotting locations, so does anyone have any hints and tips they would be willing to share regarding where the best places are to go to see ships and photograph them? We had a letter in the last issue about shipspotting from a hotel room on the Kiel Canal. But what other top spots are there in the UK and around Europe? Your ideas and suggestions are welcome. In the meantime, I hope the year is a good one for you all and I look forward to hearing your ideas.
