    Yep. With the vertical distortion, it looked like an amalgamation of a US 50s plane and Blackburn Belvedere. :lol:

    My hat's off to the crew who fought that fire (three hours? Either a stubborn blaze, or inadequate training....no injuries, so I'd go with the stubborn part...although, three hours is enough time for a fire to eat half that ship...one has to wonder). As for the passengers, welcome to what our troops volunteer to go through overseas. No phone? Darn. Spam? At least you've got a meal.

    Call me a cynical bastard, but the more I hear about this story, the more I just shake my head. And sometimes laugh, but that's only at the voices in my head.

    I was thinking with 3,000 people they should have changed it into a theme cruise. Give all the passengers an oar and have them start rowing. :evil4:

    Human Nature, at first you're grateful to be alive and have an oar and a bench to sit on, then after a while you want a barka lounger, wide-screen TV, and lobster

    My first thought was I felt for all those old people that couldn't navigate 10 floors of stairs to eat or get some fresh air.

    I'm not a cruise ship person. Having traveled most of my professional career and stayed in sterile hotels, the idea of taking a vaction "in a horizontal hotel" sounds like utter hell on the best of days. Not enough booze on a ship the right that wrong.

    I love cruises, but the main reason I go is to relax and get away from people. The last thing I really want to do it go on to a confined ship with 3,000 other people. I prefer the smaller ships then the floating cities
