    Good pictures. They are of interest to me, as my son was serving on board at the time, & so whilst the Belgium was in Liverpool on this particular visit, my family & I took the opportunity to have a look round the ship. It was very interesting, we met the Captain, who showed us round the bridge, explaining some of the key features & differences of this Ice Class ship. It has a fully enclosed, full width bridge, & ice breaking capability, for travelling up the St. Lawrence in winter. All the door seals are heated, as the temperature drops below -30c! This was the only occasion that the Belgium docked there during my son's time on it. It's usual route being; Southampton, Antwerp, Le Harve, Montreal & round again! Hope the info is of interest to you, Regards.
