    To each his or her own, but the Olympic-class trio are considered to be some of the handsomest ships ever built...crisp, beautiful lines with broad beams and gorgeous counter sterns.

    They just don't need to be built today, that's all. But ugly? No.

    :eek: :fragile:

    I've always found the ships from that era (the Olympic class from White Star, the Mauritania and Lusitania, and the like) to have a gorgeous elegance that today's cruise ships are sorely lacking. The modern day cruise liners are some of the ugliest designs and look like cheap fabricated crap when compared to the craftsmanship and decor of the ships of a century ago.

    The Andrea Doria and Cristoforo Columbo (both Italian Line,) looked so sleek and graceful in the water. The 50's really had some beautiful liners.

    Well, just so I won't seem like such a terrible person, I found the interior of the ship, as of all the liners of that era, to be beautiful.
