Where's the ship? I see only a floating hotel! Seriously now, that's a great shot - these ships have a decent profile, length to height they don't seem too overbearing. What ever happened to a little sheer?
Pity they added the extra balcony cabins at the stern, makes the whole thing look even more squarish. Compare this ship with the ZUIDERDAM or ARCADIA and you'll see what I mean. I understand ZUIDERDAM and OOSTERDAM will be rebuilt in the same manner (NOORDAM already had those extra cabins as built).
I was on her for a cruise the end of may,very nice ship. Italy was a mess with the garbage piled up on the streets,and according to TV last night its still piling up due to the garbage workers being on strike. But I was told while ashore the the problem was due to the mafia owning the garbage dump and asking too much money to dump the garbage.
Ahh the Mifia always the Mafia - call Tony Soprano's crew in Paulie wil get it squared - speaking of which - Rotterdam looks nothing like her predecesssor though she has nice flair on the bow and it doesn't apperar as a stub bow
