Is it just me or is her bridge reminiscent of QE2's?

It needs proper open wings though, but yes - it does remind me a bit of QE2's bridge.

Quite a few of NCL's ships have this style of bridge - Norwegian Jade and Jewel both come to mind. I like the style of it and agree that it is quite similar to the centre section of QE2's bridge - why try to improve when its already perfection??  ;D

Here's the Jewel's bridge and the little center bumpout.  In person, it is not so flattering, in my opinion, if you can get beyond the hull graphics.
