Very interesting. Each of these vessels have a passenger "capacity" of 2 - 3,600 ish. This seems to be the new "Costa del.." way of taking a holiday. As far as am concerned, no thank you! On a professional level, am thinking nightmare scenario if any of these boats have to be evacuated. (Thumb)

Thanks for this update Fred.
Quite an amazing list of cruise ships to be built showing that the holiday pattern of a lot of people have moved from 2 weeks being lazy on the beach in Alicante to a fortnight trip in luxury on the high seas.

Well I know which I prefer. One can still be lazy, but have a different view every day.
