    Can someone tell me how the stability of these things work. With all that weight up top, and a decent breeze, why don't they capsize. It can't be iceberg principle, or draft would be too great, and even with lots of weight down low as possible, that's still a huge weight and windage to have so high?

    you have hit the nail on the head already, weight below is adaquate to compensate for the top weight plus windage. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    Jeez 9 decks above weather, 3 below and then the machinery and tankage. Bet a run round the monkey island isn't for the feint hearted. Just read there are 15 passenger decks, not sure they're all stacked though

    Saw QM2 Bergen and she made the dockside cranes look tiny

    Wow, not sure I'd want to sail on her all the same. Anyone counted the mooring lines?
