[QUOTE=BricknHead;18196783]how much fucking water does that thing have to displace? it must be huge underneath the water line[/QUOTE] the draught is only about 9m
I bet they have an armory onboard just for shits
[QUOTE=DarkCybrid;18265633]Haven't these people heard of the Titanic?[/QUOTE] yeah well it's lucky they won't be hitting any icebergs then isn't it since they now have radar and thanks to global warming there's a lot less ice [QUOTE=FFStudios;18189856]You ain't gonna get enough lifeboats for 6k+ people[/QUOTE] this isn't the way the law works. also cruises aren't as much fun as you think they are. at the end of the day, you're still stuck on a boat.
That looks ready to capsize, unless everything below the waterline is made of lead.
I just realized that this could be used as a failsafe in case 2012 actually happens. Holy shit the government's preparing for the end.
It looks like the life boats are big enough to have their own life boats.
Well, now I know where I'm going in the Zombie apocalypse :P.
From the outside it just looks like a sideways apartment skyscraper.
[QUOTE=Frankiscool!;18189726]Jesus christ there is a hall-way like thing in the middle....[/QUOTE] Which could fill with water and sink the entire thing. Plus it looks like there isn't enough life rafts for 6,000 people.
Neighbouring countries can eat their hearts out. :denmark: :sweden: (we need a :finland: emote) [QUOTE=Sonicyouth;18190042]Well I guess they have a lot of stuff to do. But I don't know if this sort of thing is economically beneficial?[/QUOTE] For Finland at least, and with the sister ship in order, even more money for us.
[QUOTE=GrubFlyer;18266827]Which could fill with water and sink the entire thing. Plus it looks like there isn't enough life rafts for 6,000 people.[/QUOTE] each life boat holds 370 people
Holy tittyfucking christ that thing is massive. I want to see it battle rough seas :v:
[QUOTE=mike;18267175]each life boat holds 370 people[/QUOTE] That means, that they are atleast 4 times as big as busses. Holy mother of fuck
[QUOTE=Earthen;18189948]which makes it twice as awesome![/QUOTE] And twice as likely to sink!
My mom is talking about taking us on this if we can get the money :D
Helipad - awesome
Seems like the kind of place where there would be lots of adventures to be had. [img]http://www.goview.tv/PSP/ENTERTAINMENT/Images/RHI%20Miniseries/Poseidon%20Adventure/PL_PoseidonAdvent_pt1.jpg[/img]
It looks cool and all but I can't find any non prerendered screenshots of the inside. Seems a little fishy.
[QUOTE=ProboardslolV2;18195148]I went on a carnival cruise before. the game rooms were pretty good, but had the standard "Alien", "need for speed", and "time crisis 3" games. the guitar hero was pretty beast, but the best part was that the place had [I]class[/I]. the piano player was awesome, everybody dressed really fancy, and the lobby was absolutely beautiful. the entertainment was great, the comedians were hilarious. only problem, not to sound rascist, was that there were lots of poor black people. nothing wrong with that, except because they were poor, would NOT stop asking for money they must have boarded from Nassau, which i noticed had lots of homeless skinny people.[/QUOTE] If you didn't want to be racist then the black part is irrelevant.
I wanna go on a cruise now
And like the Titanic, it doesn't seem to have enough life-boats to accomodate the ships total capacity in the event of a hull breach.
[QUOTE=Dr Nick;18270811]And like the Titanic, it doesn't seem to have enough life-boats to accomodate the ships total capacity in the event of a hull breach.[/QUOTE] Well, there's 9 lifeboats on one side. If each one can carry 370 people, that's 3,330 people on that side. If both sides have 9 lifeboats, then its' lifeboats can carry 6660 people, which is more than its' passsenger capacity. So I'd imagine it's all good. It also looks pretty awesome.
Sweet, I'm already booked to go on it April 21st, for my dad's company.
[QUOTE=DJFender;18271115]Sweet, I'm already booked to go on it April 21st, for my dad's company.[/QUOTE] Lucky. What kind of room you have?
[QUOTE=Dr Nick;18270811]And like the Titanic, it doesn't seem to have enough life-boats to accomodate the ships total capacity in the event of a hull breach.[/QUOTE] Uh.. after the Titanic sunk all ships have to have enough life boats for everyone on board.
[QUOTE=OvB;18271167]Lucky. What kind of room you have?[/QUOTE] I seriously don't know yet. I just know the date and the ship. I'm excited to go though. :v:
Oh Lawd.
Ahhahaahah that ship can't sink, it must have at least 1001 hulls to prevent penetration this time around. Hurr durr
Did anyone else notice the size and number of lifeboats doesn't look to be able to hold the passenger count? Looks like another Titanic to me.
[QUOTE=will721;18271923]Did anyone else notice the size and number of lifeboats doesn't look to be able to hold the passenger count? Looks like another Titanic to me.[/QUOTE] The total lifeboat capacity is greater than the passenger capacity.
