Down
Faster's right, it's a car carrier... Also known as a Ro-Ro, for "Roll On, Roll Off"... If you look at the starboard stern quarter, you will see an offset "door" that lowers onto the pier, and the ship is loaded/unloaded by simply driving the vehicles on/off...

They definitely get my vote, for the type of ship I'd least desire to be aboard during a full storm at sea...

OK, here's the seawall outside a famous port, someone will probably get this one immediately...
