I didnít say I liked it just saying there are more uglier cruise ships than this one.

Paul, So you don't think that it looks too bad? I'd have thought that was condemning her with faint praise.

Hi Clive,Google it there are plenty of computer generated pics of what it will look like,I don't think it looks to bad.

Looks like someone took a bite off the bridge.

Whilst it is a good and interesting photo from what I am seeing I find it difficult to agree regarding her looks. Perhaps I should reserve my judgement until we can see her fully.

A rather good looking ship!

Hi, I must apologize, because I didn't see the stern, but I know the decision was Malta as long as the company thought UK would stay in the EU. But now the will be british at all (and I think, they are right)

Hi Jochen,

Thanks for this! Actually, I saw a picture taken of her stern in the building hall which showed her home port as London! Quite a surprise.
