Quantum of the Seas entering New York harbor

He’s getting downvoted because he’s making a generalized statement about cruise ship design based on one ship, as if there is some master design for them. I agree that the QotS is a bit….out there, but it’s by no means the ugliest thing to

Miss Geico

That’s the old Mystic Miss Geico… One of the turbines caught fire and she burnt to the water line. The new one runs 1650 Mercs and is a 43 Victory I believe.

Sailing regatta with spinnakers in Croatia

Roger Blough underway at speed on Lake Superior

An unnamed tall ship approaching the Port of Liverpool.

The ship is the [Asgard II](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asgard_II), the Irish sail training vessel which sank in 2008. My grandfather was the marine surveyor who oversaw her construction; she was a well-designed brigantine, he was skeptical of the findings of the investigation.
