Oriana isn't that bad, but the general consensus is that she is ugly. Definitely not as beautiful as Canberra, though.

I do like Canberra's design.

For some reason the Canberra's design doesn't interest me at all.  :-\

I can't say I ever found Canberras looks appealing either. I met up with her several times during my time at sea and don't think I even took a photo of her in all that time. I suppose by that stage I had been spoiled by QE2.
Don't just be part of her past, be part of her history!

I'm not the only one then. For some reason the Canberra has just never appealed to me.

I find Oriana's much more interesting. I do like Canberra, but I understand why you don't like her design.

Oriana's stern doesn't really appeal to me either, however I do think it is a very interesting and original design.  :)

I, too, never found Canberra's looks appealing.  She was dearly loved by many.  But after seeing QE2, to me, all ships pale in comparison.

QE2 - the ship for all of time, a ship of timeless beauty !

My choice is
Qe2 best ocean liner of all time
Qm2 best ocean liner or ship afloat
Qe was the best ocean liner
But each and every ship has its own character and cant be compared to another.
