Sandy, thank you for the information. I look forward to hearing more about this new project as it becomes available.

There are two things that concern me about the very large ships we are starting to see. First is getting off the ship, either in port or -- heaven forbid -- an emergency. Second, while "concern" might be too strong a word here, I am somewhat sad for pax who will never visit some of the beautiful places these ships cannot go, such as the Town Cut in Bermuda (and, as of now, St. George's itself).

Yet, as we've seen on other lines (I'm thinking primarily Royal Caribbean), this is apparently what people want. I admit to not being one of those people, though. So, thankfully, there are other ships in the NCL fleet and other lines that will accommodate the rest of us. Remember, old is not obsolete.
Happy cruising!
