    Sorry - just a ghetto for passengers. Probably the height of luxury inside and very nice to sail on. Just doesn't appeal from the outside.

    The great pics - but oh those ships. The design is based upon creating nearly all cabins with outside balconies, so the owners can charge premium prices. That's why they've got that tenement look about them and the fast racy lines of cruise ships in the past are now history.

    That reminde me of when we migrated to Australia.
    When we boarded our ship at Southampton I was given an oar.
    When i asked why the guy told me that we had been allocated an outside cabin with a porthole.
    "You've got nearly six weeks of rowing to do"says he.
