      Is that one at the top the Oasis?

      Not really pretty ships are they? No lines and too boxy up top.

      What you really want is this...

        From the funnel its a P&O ship... probably Azura.

        Oasis of the Seas actually looks quite nice - in my opinion - compared to some of the stuff other lines have came up with.

            She's Azura, taken on the evening of her arrival while I was faffing about Southampton before my Carnival interview. She's not the best looking ship on the outside, but the scale is absolutely huge. You must remember that everyone wants a balcony these days, and the cruise lines love them because of the revenue, so the outside of the ship is purely balconies and the stern looks like the back of a ferry. I'm also not a huge fan of the "beak" bow, though I understand passengers are able to walk around the deck there.

            From the front though, she looks great.

                I was on the Azura for the naming.

                It's good inside, but it did make me think of a shopping trolley =]

                  Yeah, same!! It's why I got into the MN, couldn't afford it so decided to get the ticket and get paid to do it!!

                  Did you do the Tall Ships 2008 by any chance?

                              Maersk is like a [EDIT]... if it pays they'll do it

                              strong economic foundations... albeit it with a strong social, ethical and environment sense of respect.

                              That's how to be a successful company
