I thought when NCL dredged this monstrosity up from the bottom of a dock in Germany they'd hit the rock bottom of ship design, however I was wrong. :o
Still think they should've left this where they found it. ;D

That one reminds me of an Imperial Stormtrooper from Star Wars! ;D

That is an impressive video, Pat.  If only there could be a new France.  But somehow, I suspect this France will not get built.  Those weird funnel-like structures seem so top heavy.  All I can think is the Poseidon Adventure!

I like the new France!!  Its a nod to the original, but not Retro in any way.  Bring it on!

And don't forget the lifeboats!  (notice no life boats on "(no) boat deck")

Well, that video has knocked me sideways, I actually like it! She's modern yet her lines appear classic. A liner for the 21st century :o

I like the hull shape but I'm not keen on those accomodation blocks, although I can see why they have designed them like that.

While trying to find new photos of Disney's Dream, which was floated out today, I found this on the Meyerwerft website.  Here's a teaser.  They should keep her in the shed.  This ship appears to be done in the "Epic" way of adding additional decks!  Imagine if the building were higher what the ship would have looked like!

Here's a full side shot, taken at night.  Gotta love the hull graphics.  Why?
