A complete new category on this site: Non-ugly ships: Ships of a design I approve of, that should be the blue-print for a lot more ships on this round thing we call earth. Ships I actually would like to sail on, to add to my CV.
The first one in this category is the Queen Mary 2, a truly magnificent vessel, oozing more class than all the other floating apartment buildings together.
Maybe it’s got to do something with the fact that the designers have drawn a more classical looking vessel compared to the modern ones.
Also: on a lot of modern cruiseships there are a few decks on top of the bridge: not good in my humble opinion: I think the bridge should be on the highest deck on the bow.
The fact that there are no special thrills, no exorbitant features, no stricking attractions on this vessel helps to show the supreme attitude of the looks.
in a nutshell: this is a prime example of how a modern cruiseship should be designed. A real Non-Ugly Ship!
