Bridge Tour on the MV World Odyssey

I was allowed to take a tour of the MV World Odyssey's bridge a few weeks back. The bridge is the command center for the entire ship. All navigation and communication are performed on the bridge under the supervision of an Officer of the Watch (OOW) and an Able Seaman (AB). As the 3rd Officer explained their responsibilities and duties, I wandered around the bridge and captured some moments.
