You can see the adventure here:

First how/when did you go there? I thought this one got destroyed when the building collapsed Second, did you go inside? This is super cool by the way, I’ve never seen a picture of a human next to one of the Buran shuttles before!

Fills me with sadness, to see machines like that just set aside forgotten in time. Glad you managed to get in and out and have the pics/vids to share!

Went to watch your video thinking it be amateurish, shaky and just a cell phone video. How wrong I was! Turned out to be an awesome mini documentary, very eerie and even more interesting and intriguing! 10/10! Video ‘liked’ subscribed to your channel and notifications turned on! Can I join you guys for your next adventure?!?

This park also includes all the future presidents. The tech for looking into the future was so expensive that it bankrupted the park, sadly.

Here's a view down the hole, as it was driving me crazy wanting to see more. Here's an article about it too.

Designed and built back when they still wanted ships to be beautiful as well as efficient. Compare to latest generation of box like behemoths roaming the seas.

This picture always kind of put things into perspective for me.

That's the Titanic shopped in front of the Oasis of the Sea. It's from This article

If I were to go on a cruise, I think I'd choose a River Cruise over one of the massive cruise ships that head out into the open ocean. Chances are I am going on neither though.

The difference is between ocean liners (ships designed to cross the open ocean speedily) and cruise ships (floating hotels designed to make short hops with maximum on-board entertainment).
