Dropping anchor


The "Mona Lisa" cruise ship docked in Squamish Terminals early Tuesday morning. The ship was recently docked in Doha for the Doha Games. For the next 56 days it will serve as home base for 1,100 members of VANOC's workforce and the ship's 300 crew members. The ship, which officials describe as a "floating luxury hotel," features a small theatre, Internet café, laundry facilities and a special drying room, where members of the workforce can hang their uniforms up to dry every day.
