    Nice pics. The ship is very ugly though, IMHO. I saw the Sapphire Princess
    from North Sydney on Monday. It looked like someone had built a new building
    overnight!

    One thing though. She is the largest passenger liner to visit Australia, not
    the largest ship. There are some bulk ore carriers in the 300,000 tonne range
    that have visited us in the past.

    BTW, the best looking ship to visit our country in recent years is still the
    good old QE2:-

    The all time best looking ship in history is the French ship Normandie. She was
    launched in 1932 and sunk in New York during WW2.
    Visit http://www.pictureaustralia.org/ and type in Queen Elizabeth.

    Where did they leave the other half? ;) 520,000T at least AIR. Not sure
    how big some of the new CNG/LPG tankers will be, but I'd not be suprised
    if they up the figures!

    Thanks for the pics.
    That, and other such ships always look very top heavy?
    Would you know how they keep the centre of gravity low?
