Bonsoir ! Sam Brunel Elliott et OLRA members-
Here goes a video with a virtual tour Of the Titanic II...First exclusive look on-board the replica of RMS Titanic II ,the cruise ship Titanic .
According to the person who posted this video...
"Titanic 2 will be exactly like Titanic ,but there will be modern lifeboats and a modern propulsion .
The maiden voyage will be in 2016 from Southampton to New York.
Titanic 2 will be operated by Blue Star Line, wich is owned by the australian billionaire Clive Palmer .
Hopefully Titanic 2 isn`t going to ram an iceberg."
I would like to learn more about early transitional steam and sail paddlewheel ships like the Sirius and the Great Western. I've not been able to find a good illustration of what it would have looked like to be on one to these ships, that is where things would have been of the deck of the ship.
With regards to the picture of the Titanic and the modern ship seen below:
The ocean liner of former times was a conveyance between two places whereas the modern cruise ship is really a destination in itself, a floating resort town. There seems to be something in the nautical architecture that reflects this shift in purpose. I prefer the earlier ship, it seems more to scale with human proportions.
Got any pics of the boiler rooms and the engines them selves. That's what I like most about the ol' ships
