hi guys

Its been some time since my last post but this idea has been crossing my mind.

Have any cruise company had consider building a Dirigible like this:



I mean I know that they don't use hydrogen any more and Helium is the main choice now, but since they cannot be as fast as an airplane they can be a good choice for cruising.
This idea may work because all the companies are going bigger what about changing the way we cruise?

Cas.. the weight of such a thing would make it impossible. If you take a look at any of the recent attempts, you will see what I am talking about. Even the Hindenburg which is one of the largest every constructed couldn't carry a cabin space larger enough for more than 100 people (36 passengers and 61 crew were on the last flight)

Although the accommodations were very nice, there is no way that it could be cost affective.
