Damn, that's a big boat.
Damn, that's a big ugly boat.
Shoot. You could fit the whole of MacRumors user base on that... not that you'd want to
200,000 != 3,000.
Cruise ship customers don't care if their boat's ugly, as long as they get a cabin with a window....
I am sure you're right…
Unfortunately these damn things don't spend most of their time far out at sea.
75% of the time they are lying in harbours spoiling the view while their lard-a$$ed passengers spend in the onshore "duty-free" shops.
Blight of the Caribbean.
^ I wish I were a lard-a$$ed passenger skulking around in the Caribbean.
My grandma lives in that town and I've been to the Meyer Werft (where they are made) many times and it's pretty interesting to see the ships in their different stages of production. One of my friends also lives right along the river where all the new ships must pass through to get to the open sea, and they say it's a pretty big event everytime a new one's finished.
SHEER CLASS!!! OMG I so like want to be that classy. If only it was a bit bigger then I would book a trip on the 'Council House of the Seas'
Except the sad part is is that in a year or two, this won't even be the biggest ship anymore. Royal Caribbean is coming out with a 5,400 passenger ship, their "Oasis of the Seas" dwarfing this ships 3,000 passengers.
Recession? What recession?
Doesn't that ship look quite top-heavy to anyone? Ok, I'm sure they know what they're doing... but still!
I don't know about most people but I prefer to spend my time on scenic beaches with lots of bikinis, not port docks.
I think that cruise ship was the one, when they launched into the sea, the wave swamped all the spectators.
... I remember seeing something like this before...
Circa May 31, 1911
That title wont last for long.
The Oasis of the Seas comes out in December of 2009 (?). Try 5,400 people and 220,000 GRT.
You should see some of the technical challenges they have to take care of to build something that big, then it's not "ugly" anymore.
Wouldn't mind taking a cruise on one of these.
While I agree that the technical challenges of rotating a 100 storey apartment building on its side, adding half of Las Vegas while turning it all into a floating all-you-can-eat buffet certainly are impressive, the aesthetics leave a *lot* to be desired.
It remains an ugly big barge, IMHO.
Pity there are no icebergs where it's going.
One day I shall sail aimlessly around Mediterranean peninsulas on a boat such as that. She's beautiful .
I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
It's not a boat, it's a floating hotel with a hull.
I just pray that one of these things never needs a rescue. *shudder*
One way of looking at it.
i saw a report about a similiar ship (perhaps even this one) and it a had like a full scale shopping mall inside of it going across 3 floors ...
