That is the best angle to see the JUPITER. From some other angles she looked slightly odd because her funnel was slightly too far aft IMHO.

Wonderful photo! Perfect capture of the moment and excellent quality.

I am pretty sure it is Kusadasi

In answer to Fatih
The photo was taken by my father who passed away in 2003. Notes that he wrote on the slide mount say nothing about the location other than "Med" meaning Mediterranean. My parents did visit Ephesus in Turkey, however, & some other ship photos from the same trip were taken there. If this looks to you like Kusadasi, it likely is.

Was this picture taken in Kusadasi?

Looking almost like a small version of the BERGENSFJORD. Gorgeous ship!

Fabulous photo,, and what a wonderful composition.... makes you feel that you are (also) on the boat deck of ORPHEUS at that moment;
Thank you for sharing this indeed beautiful photograph,
With my very best regards /Jadran

Great old cruise ship, when ships were ships.
