    World Record Ship

    Anyone interested set you recorders now.

    Wednesday 14th July on - Nat Geo channel 21.00 & 22.00 on +1

    The Oasis Of The Seas has shattered all records and become the biggest cruise ship ever built.

    This programme follows the amazing vessel's construction from design to detailed and often specatcular tests.
    The sheer scale of this ship is mind-blowing, it's like a small town, nay a city at sea.
    But to build the world's largest ship, designers and engineers are put to the ultimate test in ship building. With safety and environmental concerns a high priority, they must construct an entire city at sea and all without comprimising the environment or its passengers.

    With models, mockups and prototypes they perform detailed and spectacular tests, they also put the ship through the ringers in arduous sea trials to prove the safety of what the designers are calling a near unsinkable ship.

                Nice to see your still around Grant, I've missed your cryptic anecdotes - are you
                busy at work or have you been out cruising in your rowing boat.

                              Thanks Dave - we are looking forward to that programme as we were on the inaugural voyage out of Fort Lauderdale last year. It is the most fantastic ship - but we were particularly spoiled as it was only two thirds full and the majority of passengers were adults. It might be a different scenario if full to capacity. Has anyone been on the ship when it was filled with families?
