    Default new liner FRANCE

    Hello, just picked up my August model boats mag and it shows an artists impression of a new cruise liner,'FRANCE'. If you think todays megaboxes are ugly cop a butchers at this monstrosity. No sheer hull and two big apartment blocks stuck on top. It's effin criminal.

    I think the Designer is suffering from the effects of too much Cognac.

    Use to think ships with-out funnels didn't look right the until I saw the new FRANCE (But can it fly?)

    Default new liner France

    Must admit i have seen it all now, when will sense prevail, no way is that a Ship, design taken to crazy extremes, words fail me. scared to think what will come next. first i thought it had sunk, and that was just the superstructure. YUK.

    Thumbs down Ugliness may be only skin deep?

    I bet in a real storm when she starts corkscrewing it will be quite disconcerting looking at one tower moving in the opposite direction to the other.It has to be one of the ugliest ships ever designed. However I guess its what it looks like from the inside that counts for those who are going to sail on her.
