Title: Rate that Ugly Ship!
Post by: RMSGreatBritain on December 22, 2008, 18:50:43
I've thought of a new forum game, Rate how ugly that ship is! same rules as the Rate that ship game, except you rate them on how ugly they are, with 10 being ubelievably ugly and 1 being not ugly.

This game is in no means intended to be offensive to any designers of such ships that are on here. Please no one get offended by us calling these ships ugly. Thanks.


Ill start with this ugly ugly peice of plastic tat, Pride of America:

1/10

She aint that ulgly, but functional.

I once saw this ship when I was sailing on the river Schelde.
She was going to pick up wind turbine parts in Vlissingen.

I actually think that all these cargo vessels and crane vessels are fuctional and arent even that ugly, like the rest of you said. Ill carry on with another pic, with a ship called verona:

Yes, I havnt seen such a bad colour design since the Norwich City football kit of the mid 90s, or Arsenals of 1991. But back to ugly ships, you have to look closely with this one:

Yuk! 10/10! I know its normal for those sorts of pushers, but 2bridges is still ugly! This P&O stena ship is ugly though aswell:
Title: Re: Rate that Ugly Ship!
Post by: Quaysider on December 23, 2008, 18:52:26
Now that's really fun!!! 1000/10!  Weird proportions between the hull's height, lenght & the size of superstructure.
Is she a some kind of a dry cargo vessel or a specialized vessel?

sorry for late reply - no access at work! Yes she is a dry cargo vessel, built as a hopper. Often carries radioactive cargos into the Humber but I didn't say that  ;)

Spruce - when you look at her history you'll see she was just a np pontoon until she was converted into a barge carrier

Honestly I think Pride of Rotterdam and the pride of hull are quite ugly. Too many flat sides, no Balconies, kind of reminds me of a prison ship!  ;)
(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/dd/P&O_Ferries_Pride_of_Rotterdam.PNG)

Oh by the way, I saw the post on the first page saying that all the NCL ships are ugly, I agree with that with the exception of the Norwegian Sun and the Norwegian Sky. I think they are the only two NCL ships that don't look like floating blocks.

He he 8/10 cushioncraft for the floating table. Carnival have 7 other ships which are identical to Carnival Fantasy. all of them Are ugly of course! Here is another ugly cruise ship, MSC Poesia, which has a very ugly forecastle which is stupidly square as well as stupidly steep decks above the bridge:

What about Carnival Triumph. I don't really know why, I've just never liked the look of it.

The funnel should be squater but on a higher deck, the foward decks are too tall, it just is unbalanced-10/10!

Here is an ugly ferry, herald of free enterprise. this ship however sank, god rest her and all the passengers who went down with her. She was ugly, but she was no less a ship:

When I look at this topic I get sad biceaus a lot of this ships are just normal ships like the ones you see every day.

And you ppl are rating it for ugly ships.
To me, it looks like there aren't many ship enthousiasts on this topic.

Yes, but I just start to think more and more that you ppl don't know a lot about ships.

Just try a little harder and find some ships that really are ugly and not just some random ship.

For example the trawler, that really was a ugly ship.
In stead of just picking an average car carrier or an average cruiship.

Title: Re: Rate that Ugly Ship!
Post by: Sam on December 25, 2008, 11:56:15
Hehe, yes, but I can understand why it has that strange set-up.

The bridge is probably at the back biceaus it is a trawler, so the captain can see what is happening with the nets and his crew.
And the funnels are in front of the bridge biceaus that is where the engine is.
And more exhaust pipes means more money :P

So, it is a ugly, but functional ship :P (I guess  ::))

Thanks Sam, I'm verry happy that now this ship is very famous & I won this game because my trawler is unbeatable!

I think you missed my post   ;), because if you should have seen my one you should understand that that ship is just unbeatable. But I have to say that your trawler was also really ugly!  :P

6/10 Could be worse. BTW that's the same kind of ship as Herkules Atlas in the game isn't it?
Haw About this one, this is actually the desighn the Norwegian Sky and the Norwegian Sun were based on. But NCL bought her sistership when it was 30% compleated and redesighened her. NCL's version is much better!

Title: Re: Rate that Ugly Ship!
Post by: Sam on December 29, 2008, 15:43:01
Yes, that containership is a beautifull ship!

The Herkules Atlas is allso a towboat.
But I allso think that it is ugly.
The model is realistic, but I hate the design.
This is how a beatifull towboat looks like:

Title: Re: Rate that Ugly Ship!
Post by: Kapn Jonah on December 29, 2008, 17:47:24
that pushboat is no better than the one posted earlier, it looks like it was squished in the building process, but it does look better than the Herkules Atlas, looks more modern.

... what?

That is a floating beauty (for an inland ship), all the proportions are right.

What do you mean with, it looks like it has been squished?

Here are some more pictures:

Maybe because Fairmount is also from Netherlands together with VSTEP?

I think you may be correct there,

RPA - Dutch
Pride of Rotterdam - Dutch
Agile Solution (Real Name Deo Volente, Hartman Sea Trade) - Dutch
Jumbo Javelin, Jumbo Shipping - Dutch
P6 - Dutch
Elbe, Furie - Dutch
Arie Visser - Dutch
VSTP 7 (Based on real Rotterdam taxis) - Dutch

VSTEP have included a fair amount of other ships though, but to be honest, Dutch ships are quite nice...

Back to the ugly ships....
Standby vessels are always wondering me. What're they do, actually? Why do they look so? That one doesn't look like a tug or supplier or a firefightning vessel, but she has 2 azipods near the bow (like on Bugsier 2):

3/10 - Have photos of her as "Sentinel Theresa" when Cam shipping purchased several of the class. They are quite smart really but boy did they roll as they turned into the dock! As a standby vessel only they provide medical rescue facilities - the aft deck space is really only for airlifting patients and they have no towing capability but they do have firefighting and pollution control capabilities.

Hey! She is one of the Marine Atlantic's older vessels!

a) It's a derrick.
b) Yup - on the deck
c) Possibly - or ropework/fendering?
d)  :laugh:

the vessel is used as a theatre ship by all accounts. Under the previous name of "Arold" she was used by ABP on the Humber to train pilots when they 'sacked' all the Humber Pilots and took the service themselves. She was involved in several 'incidents' around the time.  ::)

What is wrong with that one? It's just a multihull, a trimaran. Here in north west Europe, you see them most likely tendering crew to the offshore windmill farms.
Title: Re: Rate that Ugly Ship!
Post by: Ballast on January 17, 2009, 12:09:56
To my view it has very thin ("as paper") side hulls, or they're connected to the uderwater hulls?

The sidehulls are only connected to the centerhull with the deck.

Actually that ferry is built here in Ã…lesund at Fiskerstrand yard where I work ;D
I also think that the color is awful,the ferry is now somewhere in Portugal and I think the reason that they painted it lime green is because of the light down in Portugal where it is operating makes it difficult to see the ferry or something like that...It was standing something about that ferry in the local newspaper but I don't remember exactly what :)

Looks like someone has chopped off the bow, and then squashed it. I dislike ferries that have had bow visors removed, leaving a flat frontal surface. Seems...Silly  :-\

Rather an old post I know, but she just got uglier. They have announced the paint scheme today!!



anyone would think they're trying to make the ship as ugly as can be for some anti-beauty contest! :lol:

If this ship had 'normal' paint, it wouldn't be that bad...

Its a awsome ship and not ugly ..
Have been onboard.
And the colour is funky and not the boring white.

That one is very lightly loaded! I'm suprised she's running that high in the water.

There must be some special reason that the ship's master hasn't taken on more ballast.

It was carefully designed to exactly fulfil a very specific set of tasks, like all vessels.  :thumbs:

I have no idea about if that's a mast or a funnel or a kind of turbosail (like those on Custeau's Alcyone) & why it has that little sail. Also no idea about how many % from the main drive that tiny sail gives to that monster...   And the triangle-shaped hull...  ???

for what its worth i dont think its too bad. I wouldnt say it ruins the whole look, it just does what it has too and is not too obtrusive in my view. besides, the rest of the beauty of that ship more than makes up for it.

Don't know what do you think, but I found Siem Sailor rather ugly to deserve being in this topic:

Nothing wrong with her, just an average supplier!
I even would call it beautifull.

You could find every ship in the world ugly if you look at this topic.

It might not LOOK pretty, but the bow has been designed to be as aqua-dynamic as possible, whilst the superstructure is devoted to more floor space. Ugly, maybe, but also designed as a working tool- I think it's clever.

EDIT: And that is my opinion of the vessel; it isn't an arguement with you about it.

No wonder, a Rotterdam ferry Wagenveer (Carferry)...

I can't stand the double deck design...   Either the pier is very high or the hull is very low?
Not sure if she was enough stable in bad weather.
Title: Re: Rate that Ugly Ship!
Post by: Kevinmcg_ships on October 01, 2009, 18:34:08
That design looks very similar to the old Finneston ferry in Glasgow, Scotland.

These ferries had an adjustable car deck which allowed to raise or lower the deck to all states of tide, therefore eleminating the need for a shore-based linkspan.

Here's one of the Finnieston ferries - they were used from the early 1890's until 1960's, when the Clyde Tunnel was completed.

For anyone who is/was wondering 'HOW THE **** IS THE TITANIC UGLY!?" If you looked inside the lower, stern, hull, it's the UGLY UGLY engine room, (wich they made semi-pretty in the movie.)
Title: Re: Rate that Ugly Ship!
Post by: Welc0me1 on October 16, 2009, 21:21:03
Jeff123,
   How would you know what the Titanic's engine room looks like? Sure you may have old black and white photos but, you must remember the Titanic was a early 20th century steamship, engine rooms are not built for ascetics (passengers won' see it), Titanic is a coal-fired steamship (coal = lot's of dust),and 1912 black and white photos are not very good quality therefor may only appear ugly. You are entitled to your opinion and I am entitled to mine.  :thumbs:

Golden star = 8/10         Abandon ship!!  :captain: :captain:     
Title: Re: Rate that Ugly Ship!
Post by: matt5674 on October 17, 2009, 14:08:28
Titanic's engine room is visible on the sunken stern, just rusted up. A picture of the sunk stern will show the engine turbines visibe at the break.

Golden Star is 9/10 on the ugly scale. With that weight of cargo will make her look like she's sinking, over the limit will make her demise.

Also, I have no photos of the TITANIC's engine room, but I have seen the same type of engine at the Henry Ford Musium, and I can tell that enough engines like that, with little enough lights, and with coal burning in all those boilers, = oh no.

*(SPEWING CHUNKS)* :o :-X (BARFAPALOOZA!)

Also, don't forget the 3rd class rooms on the TITANIC, looked like someone turned a bunch of school bathrooms into rooms for passengers. :-X (BARF-O-RAMA!)

Honestly I think Pride of Rotterdam and the pride of hull are quite ugly. Too many flat sides, no Balconies, kind of reminds me of a prison ship!  ;)

Another weird and futurstic-looking vessel from the 1950s:

(http://www.clydesite.co.uk/clydebuilt/ships/1950/ROYAL_IRIS_1448.jpg)

This is the Royal Iris, she was built in 1950 by Denny's of Dumbarton in Scotland. She was used to ferry passengers across the Mersey in Liverpool, and offered the occasional cruises.

This vessel is currently laid up on the River Thames (near the Woolwich Ferry) and sadly is in a very poor condition. I wouldn't be surprised if she end up being scrapped in a few years time.

Title: Re: Rate that Ugly Ship!
Post by: Kevinmcg_ships on December 13, 2009, 12:02:12
Yes - or rather accurately, "Royal Iris of the Mersey". She was previously called Mountwood but was renamed in 2001.

They obviously wanted to continue the tradition of having the name "Royal Iris" plying on the Mersey. The wikipedia entry explains this in detail: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MV_Royal_Iris_of_the_Mersey

Sf55 level is the end point of degradation of human consciousness.

I think what Matt meant was that although he was not personally acquainted with Mr shipfan55 (55 being his IQ+54.5) his reputation was such that he can not help but gain a subtle perception that mr shipfan55 was a moron.

Title: Re: Rate that Ugly Ship!
Post by: Stuart2007 on December 27, 2009, 23:52:37
Perhaps the poor turkey that you killed, chopped up, and ate for Christmas dinner didn't give a hoot about whales but DID think the car that your parents brought its frozen carcass back to your oven in, was ugly and stinky [sic]

The point being that who are WE to say that whaling is bad when we brutally kill poultry to make pigs of ourselves at Christmas.

Just to keep this on topic, I shall include an opinion that a ship I once saw was VERY ugly... It was the MV Bernard Matthews. Anyone got a pic?

Okay, some other NCL ships are also not very stylish or slender or even nice, but this seems to be the most ugliest! The "Norwegian Epic" has just done her very first sea trials and the superstructure isn't ready at all, but it looks like the artist impression here...

How about this screamer...

Supposed to be shaped like a horseshoe.

Here's a description;

A famous French shipbuilder ship company and one of Monaco joined hands together to build this yacht with enormous dimensions: 58x38. (58meter long and 38 meter wide)

The yacht, an area of 3400 m2 with seating for 12 passengers and 20 crew.

 

This is a "green" yacht.

Wally et Hermès  uses     green energy to 20 to 30% fuel savings and 40 to 50% electricity consumption on board. Therefore there are 900 m2 equipped with solar panels, producing a daily output of 500 kW.


equipment:

Three decks, a 25 meter pool, a spa helicopter   pad a 100m2  sauna, gym and massage room, a promenade of 130 meter, a music room, a dining room, a cinema, sun decks, suites, terraces, a lounge . 

The decks are connected by stairs but there is also an elevator.



The suite of the owner

With an area of 200m2 and completely covers the third deck. (This is the bedroom) The sea view is great and there is a private terrace of 25 meter long.


A sea of light.

The yacht has the shape of a horseshoe and has a roof so everything is bathed in a sea of light.


The spacious lounge.

On the lower deck are the common premises, such as lounge, piano bar and dining area .....

Dinning Room

The dining room opens onto the sea view. 


Suites for the guests

For the guests, 5 suites with sea views (on the middendek). There is also a reading room equipped.

The same is true for around 90% of newbuilds at the moment, many operators in both the freight and passenger trades were seeing trade increasing and ordered new tonnage to take advantage, shortly after the orders were placed the bottom fell out of the market and a lot of ships are sailing half empty, everyone is just hanging in there waiting for things to pick up again with the thought that they will be well placed to take advantage when trade increases.

I think it is a diver support vessel.

It probably has vsp propulsion so it is very well manouverable, if you couple that to a dp system you have a perfect working platform for divers.

But I agree that it is ugly. That accomodation is horrible.

Still ugly for a vessel that can float, even after 30 years service. Still not understanding that the vessel doesn't capsize with that height and speed.

 I really don't want this to turn into an ugly post contest....

 But, we are free to post our opinions about want ever we want.
And I doubt the designers of these ships even read this forum and if they did this would probably not be the first (or last) time there ships are criticized. And furthermore somebody had to share there tastes they purchase the ships. Sorry but, I really value my right to free speech. ;)

The Aeria was a mine sweeper, but she doesn't do anything anymore - she's probably been scrapped.

Informations about the "Aeria" found on http://raoc.websitetoolbox.com/post?id=4678818:

"Solved!

She is called the Aeria

Apparently she is an ex-East German spy ship, taken over by the USSR after the collapse of East Germany……she arrived in Lowestoft from Archangel to see if they could make a floating casino out of her.

The name of the project she was built for : “Reede-Minenabwehr Boot Project 415″

She was build around 1985, apparently by the Peene Shipyard in Wolgast, (former East-) Germany.



Aeria has been towed away, to Lithuania, to the scrapyard."

the thing is, this has been going for 2 years. I don't see anything wrong with this and nobody else does apart from you. now if you don't like it you don't have to read it.

of course people are going to find some ships ugly it's all personal opinion. This is allowed in the forum so the only thing that a mod would do with this topic is possibly move it into forum games.

Now lets get back on with the game

Hey Ferry King!

It is all right if you like this ship. And it's all right when you post your own opinion. But you must not try to prevent all others to say what they think.

Don't you think it would be a good idea if you showed us, what you think is ugly?

Lookin' forward to see it. Maybe I agree - maybe not.

Two things have to be said: Ship builders, who design, redesign or reconstruct ships because of new working purposes often simply don't care what the result looks like afterwards - it just must work! See Ralphy's post.
And ship designers, who design yachts like the A-yacht, do probably expect controversial discussions - otherwise they wouldn't do it. As long as there are people who can afford it and buy it they don't care.

They surely don't cry like a bay and try to force us to shut up.

BTW - in my opinion the ship above looks strange - but not ugly. A bit like like e thing from an science fiction theme park (maybe with a 3D space flight cinema in it).

Yes I do agree, it's pretty rude to refuse others their right to post their fair and polite opinions. specially when you are not in any position to have a say in the matter.

As long as people are not breaking any rules and being reasonable about why they don't appreciate the looks of a certain ship, and not out to hurt anyone, it's okay. And if they do, it's still not up to you do take action, you may use the report function instead.

So kindly just take it or leave it, TFK. But don't go there again. It's not your place to make such claims or demands and tell people not to post, you're a guest here like everyone else. Report anything you find offensice, if you like, but this topic stays open.

Thanks.

ok i understand what your saying. ok i say you can continue the game. but please dont try to sho that you can make something better as the makers of thses ships must have putten allot of effort into it

And the fact that most people only think *Norwegian Epic is the uglies one but more people in the world actually like this ship and they dont find the two upper decks ugly because those type of people like a freestyle cruise and not just judging on the outside so.

Continue with this game but please dont always use the same ship again  and again but show ships that really look ugly

We are going in circles here - we've had this one already. And the longer the thread gets, the more repetitions we meet, because it's annoying to look through all 35 pages to see if it's the ship already has been posted.

Btw: the Aeria meanwhile has been wrecked. An it's probably not been a spy ship - but there are lots of discussions out there about the purpose - nobody seems to know.
Title: Re: Rate that Ugly Ship!
Post by: Brave Sir Charge on January 20, 2011, 20:02:54
isnt it a casino now? btw probally not a spy ship you say? looooool
Quote
"Solved!

She is called the Aeria

Apparently she is an ex-East German spy ship, taken over by the USSR after the collapse of East Germany……she arrived in Lowestoft from Archangel to see if they could make a floating casino out of her.

The name of the project she was built for : “Reede-Minenabwehr Boot Project 415″

She was build around 1985, apparently by the Peene Shipyard in Wolgast, (former East-) Germany.



Aeria has been towed away, to Lithuania, to the scrapyard."
Title: Re: Rate that Ugly Ship!
Post by: krytsch on January 20, 2011, 20:08:55
I don't think so - I've read somewhere(I don't remember where) that it's been wrecked. But to be honest I'm not sure.
But surely it' a very strange vessel ... even former GDR navy members don't know much about it.

"Reede-Minenabwehr Boot" does not mean spy ship. And how do you want to spy anything with this inconspicuous vessel? Do you think they hoped, that nobody would see it?

But what I wanted to say is that we've seen the Norwegian Epic, the A-Yacht and this one before. It is annoying and boring to search the now 36 pages before posting, so this will of course happen again.

sorry i needed to say this,


the reason why they look at that is that their triangular shape makes it hard for radars to spot them as radars always looks for flat objects..
so in wars enemy radars will struggle to spot these type of ships due to their shape


the old battle ships had too many bunks and buildings stacked on top so the radar could immediatly spot that.. But these triangular ones arent

Yes I knew this. But it still looks silly!

  And about the "radar invisibility", as you can see in my beautiful diagram, depending on were the radar is it may not work. Radar 1 the signal is deflected, thus making the ship inviable .But with Radar 2 the signal is at just the right angle, so the signal is deflected back to the transmitter so the ship will show up.
However it is true that this design has a smaller radar signature than older "boxer" battleships. With the old design the radar could be at any angle and the signal would almost certainly reflect off of something and return to the transmitter, but with the new design the radar has to be at the "right" angle to reflect.
 
NOTE: For radar to work the signal must return to the transmitter.

That's the DUKE OF LANCASTER - a classic passenger steamer built for British Railways in the 1956. She was converted to carry vehicles in January 1970.

This is what she looked as built:

One of my friend took a pic of her a few weeks ago and she still look much the same.

Duke of Lancaster was beached at high tide and then 'concreted in' at her current berth which helped to protect her from tides, and has been there for 32 years now. She's a tough old lady.  :thumbs:

Her location can be found at Google Maps: 53° 18' 23.26", -3° 14' 8.48"

It's a shame to see the Duke where she is now...i've had a few opportunities to have a look at her. She's just a home now for car boot sale stalls etc. Having said that, it's interesting to still see a ship from that time period around.

As far as I know she's actually spent more time where she is now, than her sea going career in total.

NathanC, the Xbow ships are beautifull and they allso have great handling in heavy seas.
• Higher transit speed in adverse weather conditions
• Reduced fuel consumption in head seas and following seas
• Reduced fuel consumption in ballast condition due to improved lightweight distribution
• Negligible slamming reducing the risk of damage to the vessel
• Lower pitch and heave accelerations, and enhanced protection of cargo areas reducing the risk of loss or damage of cargo
• Increased payload capacity for certain applications and configurations
“Particularly small and medium sized vessels engaged in regional trades are set to capitalize on the benefits offered by the X-BOW®, and we are currently evaluating this feature for use on container feeder vessels, ro-ro vessels and certain general cargo vessels”
are all the advantages of the X-bow

Now RFA Dilligence is an ugly ship.

But i admire the work of her and the rest of the RFA keeping the RN going.

She is a fleet repair ship for the RFA but originally a civilian oil rig support ship. MV Stena Inspector.

Bright future of shipping, I guess.

Quote from: http://www.shipkits.nl/main-menu/hartman-marine-runner/11
"The Netherlands based Hartman Marine Group BV has developed, in close cooperation with Vuyk Engineering and Conoship, a brand new concept.

This vessel, named Hartman M2Runner, is characterized by a surplus of load capacity in the holds, as well as on the tween decks and also on the hatch covers itself. Gross tonnage is just below 3.000 GT.

Typically, this vessel has a a asymmetrical wheel house and accomodation, which enables the vessel to also load odd and long sizes.

Momentarily the first and second, out of a range of 3, are under construction at our yard in Stettin, Poland. Shipkits BV will build this casco based on her proven 'plug & play' concept.

Our scope consists of the building of the complete hull (based on Centraalstaal building kit) included installment of the steering gear, rudder stock, rudder, propeller and propshaft, steel outfitting, piping and a complete paint program.

The first Hartman M2Runner will be delivered to Hartman Building BV in Urk, around mid April 2012. The second will be delivered in Q4 2012."

Title: Re: Rate that Ugly Ship!
Post by: VirtualSkipper on July 13, 2012, 21:31:59
what is her name?

Her name was MS Regent Sky. She was ordered as the Stena Baltica but construction was stopped due to problems with the shipyard. Eventually a Greek shipping line (Regency Cruises) bought her where she was towed to Greece for her conversion as a cruise ship. Eventually the progress was again stopped ecause the Regency Cruises was having financial problems and Regent Sky was then seized by the National Bank of Greece. Every attempt to sell her in Greece failed and eventually she was sold for scrapping last year in July.  :'(

It's incredible how many hulls start of life as one thing and end up as something different.

Some would call this corvette class ugly

However they were build to operate in all weather in artic waters around Greenland.
Could force 3 feet of ice at 4 kts, and more if ramming.
A helo for SAR, 8 depth charges for antisubmarine warfare, (and a vintage gun for stopping fishing vessels :) )
Could survive being trapped in pack ice, without being destroyed by the ice pressure.

One survived a gigantic freak wave, to the surprise of the crew, and one survived collision with a growler.
Only time could overcome those four 'ugly ducklings' build in the early sixties.

What I mean:
 if 'noble' function dictates the design, then it is a beautiful vessel.
As a consequence of this, those large fancy box shaped cruise ships - human livestock carries - are ugly to me, but not to the owners whose perception of beauty is $$$

Of course this is only my opinion, and anyway the first year sailing 'Hvidbjoernen' (Polar Bear) I was constantly seasick  ;D

All of the previous ones are beautiful compared to this monstrosity and whoever built this deserves to rot in the depths of hell...

AIDA... What I call the ugliest cruise line in the world. Do they purposly make all of their ships so bad...?  ::)

totally agree.  and did you know the whole lips design is just a fancy way of presenting their motto "Hier ist das Lacheln zu Hause"(Here the smile is at home) not on my face sonny :)

Ok, this is getting ridiculous...

I don't think AIDA ships are too attractive, but they certainly are not "unbearably ugly" and the designers doesn't deserve "to rot in the depths of hell". I think posts are now bypassing true hideousness and replacing it with personal opinion.

Not that you can't have an opinion that is. It's just that this bashing of AIDA ships seems a bit excessive.

I quite agree.. The ship in itself looks like any other cruiseship..
 The paintjob is a matter of taste..  ;)

Take it easy now. If you want to discuss opinions, that's fine. If you have certain frustrations, that's fine, But keep everything here within a reasonable matter. Don't become edgy to people just because they say something about a ship you hate. Lars' post isn't even offending so there is no reason to respond like that.

And the creators deserving to "to rot in the depths of hell..." is a bit of offending as well.
If you hate a design you can show it here, that's where this topic is for. but that sentence is just plain unnecessary and unreasonable.

To your information, AIDA cruises are popular for families with kids due to the informal, colorfull and friendly design. That's what makes them different to other cruiselines. It is only reasonable the ship features such designs. Again, it's a matter of taste. But the creators certainly don't have to rot in hell for that, and it's most certainly not a reason to become so upset about it.

Quick fact : that ship which you think is the titanic (same with all archive videos and photos) is the Britannic not titanic. There are no photos of the titanic they are all the Britannic but pulled it off by changing name because they are identical.
Title: Re: Rate that Ugly Ship!
Post by: Jake_Savage on June 27, 2013, 22:37:15
Both those photos are the Britannic. There are NO photos of the titanic.
Title: Re: Rate that Ugly Ship!
Post by: Jake_Savage on June 27, 2013, 22:41:49
Even in 1912 they could change a name you moron. The press didnt cover Titanics launch because she wasnt the first Olympic liner. All photos were taken by passengers which went down with the ship very few photos of her sinking are still around. Many copies have been made though. I read this during my history a-level.
Title: Re: Rate that Ugly Ship!
Post by: Jake_Savage on June 27, 2013, 22:44:31
My apologies for getting names mixed up the Olympic is the one I meant. Believe the A-Level history student if u wish but if u dont more fool you. I don't want to start an argument.

Post by: Mr Robville on June 27, 2013, 23:10:28
Alright people, let's not incite another endless argument about the Olympic class ships and figuring reasons why one hates it.

To end such potential endless discussion, here are the facts in a nutshell:
Titanic was part of a passenger liner series named the "Olympic class":
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olympic-class_ocean_liner
Named after the first ship; the RMS Olympic (1911), followed by Titanic (1912) and ended with Gigantic, which was later named Britannic (1914).
Olympic got scrapped, Titanic sank as well as the Britannic.
Many people confuse Titanic and Olympic because of their similarities in design during the early years.
If anyone thinks some conspiracy switched nameplates between Titanic and Olympic, go spread your hoax someplace else.

I saw this spider boat on Discovery channel. It has a range of 5000+ miles and a speed of 50+ knots (The quite I heard was 80 knots but I need to confirm this) It rides and conforms to the waters shape and cuts through large wave. And it can be configures for anything from Luxury Yacht to Warship. I want one.
