      So this "pakarang"-view thing has become a trade-mark.... what an incredible honor, I don't even remember how it came into our vocabulary either.

      Great start of this thread.... scrolling between Freedom of the Seas and the QE2, I'm amazed at the evolution in design... and then, when scrolling between the QE2 and that kissing-lips-thingy, I'm shocked at the evolution.

                      I have calculated the offset to be within acceptable limits.....

                        Re: The "pakarang view" thread

                        I was actually unaware of that picture beeing a few degees out of center until you mentioned, but it still seems to be enough though to be a pakarang-view, right?

                        Some additions from me, "Fjordkongen"



                        "Ofoten"



                        "Stjernøy"



                        "Vesterålen" (A degree or two away from beeing dead on)



                        "Malangen"



                        Does the Pakarang-view involve straight from the rear to?

                              Great ones Tommi!
                              I especially liked the one of "Richard With","Pysen" and "Shamrock"!
                              Am I the only one who see the face in the watchtower on the picture of "Birka Paradise"?
