      it would be even a nicer list,when NCL had the guts to let design a new Norway ocean liner,like cunard did with the QM2.
      and then i don't mean that stupid ''thing'' what would be the new ''france''

        I so whole-heartedly agree with you Thijs.... NCL should honestly design a new ocean liner tributing the Norway.

          Cruise ship of the future????: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sV8v8fvtFE

          The comments below shows how ignorant the general population is of things Maritime, yet wants to put in their 2 cents worth.

            Come on, Ombugge, empty heads like these don't comment because they have something of use/interest to say. It's just to get noticed, to show how witty and savvy they (think they) are.
            The ship? Cruise ships - unless they are of the old Hurtigrute type, i.e. local passenger/cargo ships which happen to take a few tourists - are anathema to me. Further I, like the commentators to the Youtube video, don't have the technical knowledge to make any sensible remark about the concept so, unlike them, I say nothing.
            I remember seeing this, or something like it, here on CVF some while ago.
            One of the commentators did say that the concept of using sail on large ships was already in use. Is there anything like that out your way?

              On the cruise arena, we have (for many, many years) the CLUB MED 2, and I've also seen other cruiseship consept drawings (other than this) and a cargo vessel idea with sail.
              Then again, I see the question was sent more or less in 'ombugge's direction..., so we might want to see what he say.

              My view on the consept above...? You'll never know ;-)

                Yes, Svein, but Club Med 2, with under 400 passengers, cannot be compared with the present-day cruise liners with goodness knows how many decks and the sawn off back end (I refuse to honour it with the term "stern") and carrying passengers numbered in thousands. Club Med. is just a very large sail ship - updated, back-up power and computerised, of course.

                  There is nothing revolutionary new with this concept, except the size of the vessel.
                  Tr-maran hulls are among the oldest type of ocean going vessels and still in use in its traditional form in the Philippines and other islands in the Pacific.
                  There are also modern yachts and large fast ferries built to this principle.

                  Sail on large ships is making a comeback, but only experimentally as yet. I posted something on this in an other thread recently.
                  As for cruise ships with sails, it is not only Club Med 2 in existence. Windstar has 3 of them: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windstar_Cruises

                  What is new is combining these two things in a large cruise ship, however. It gives less water resistance, which saves fuel at any given speed, but especially at high speed.
                  It also gives larger deck area for passenger accommodation and leisure area, or for cars, in case of large fast ferries.

                    That was my point when I asked my question.

                    Yep.

                    Yes, so - although I didn't expect there to be any such cruise ships in your area as it was still in the experimental stage - I wondered whether there were any very large new freighters using sail in this way.

                      I like this design, as far as i see the ship in this perspective. The area behind this point.... eeeehmm.

                            It is obviously not only me that have problem getting paid on time by shipping companies.

                              I saw the news on the new MSC ship too and I love the fresh design and different look. According to some reports, it promises to be NOTHING like anything ever on sea before.
