I for one most certainly hope that is not the way in which you would like to see Shipspotting develop.
2  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: Cruiseliner "Carnival Liberty" remains in St. Thomas after fire on: September 15, 2015, 11:08:45 am
We are passengers aboard trains, buses, planes,in cars and on board ferries so why do we suddenly become guests aboard ships?
How are the 'passengers' categorised aboard the likes of the Queen Mary 2 when she is in trans Atlantic service. Are the people who are travelling just one way across the Atlantic referred to as passengers because they have booked passage aboard a ship on a line voyage and yet those people who are making the round trip and therefore using the ship as a cruise vessel are they referred to as guests?
We are guests in land-based hotels, resorts and other forms of overnight accommodation.

The vessel is the Egyptian presidential yacht El Horriya (formerly the Egyptian Royal Yacht Mahroussa). I believe that she is in fact now named El Mahroussa. She is 150 years old and was built by the Samuda Brothers, whose shipyard was on the Thames.

Well, as I said Derek, the question was open to interpretation. As I submitted my suggestions I thought of those lovely DFDS ships sailing out of Harwich but then it seems that all the DFDS ships on whatever routes were all very stylishly fitted out. There we are just looking at Northern Europe when there were fine ferries linking the north and south islands of New Zealand.

An interesting question: but the words "for its time" are rather open to interpretation. Personally, I would say that the Danish ferry Hammershus, built in 1936 and used on the overnight service between Copenhagen and the island of Bornholm had the most modern interiors for its time. Likewise, the 1937-built DFDS ferry Kronprins Olav was also given very stylish and up-to-the minute modern interiors that still looked fresh twenty years later.

Hopefully, it will remain imaginary and never become a reality.

I heard recently that her new owners had secured a short-term charter from Pullmantur for her.

They have already built this ship and she is already sailing for Costa, and has been for several months!!

Simply do a Google search for Ocean Liners with four funnels and then click on Images and there you'll have a whole variety of pictures of said liners.

I suppose that your phrase  "quite nice...." sums her up. She's not unattractive, just disappointing. She could easily pass for a sister ship to Oceania's Marina and Riviera. I'd rather hoped for something better. Sad

It was in fact a rather short-sighted view, as well as a view possibly fuelled by jealousy.
After all one has to consider how many people Mr Melnichenko's wealth keeps in employment; the crew of the yacht, as well as the people who designed and built it and those that now provide services for it where ever it goes in the world. The crew of the private jet and again those that provide services for it where ever it flies. The staff in the hotels that they stay in, the restaurants they use...... and how many houses does Mr Melnichenko own? Each of those most have staff. Those points just skim the surface of the people who in some way or another earn an income from the wealth of the likes of Mr Melnichenko.

Virtually every statement that you have posted on this site.

When you know what you are talking about maybe we'll take some notice of you!

Whilst I understand the problems that you refer to regarding Canberra, given that she remained in service for the greater part of 40 years I don't think you can really consider her to have been a real disaster. More a case of victory (or success) having been grasped from the jaws of disaster.

I wholly agree, after all if she is supposed to sail on her maiden voyage in 2016 why are they only now making agreements regarding her construction, in mid-2014? OK, at 56,000 gt she is not what is regarded as a being a large ship but on the other hand neither is she a 'bog-standard' cruise ship, this is supposed to be something rather special and thus is not a ship that can be thrown together from the usual 'kit of parts'.
I'll be there in Southampton to see her arrive, if ever that day happens. But I'm not holding my breath........
