Well, stretch or not I noticed it. The largest cruise ships to ever be built, and the rival's ship project name is mentioned.

Hey, I can't help it I read between the lines and have an active imagination.

It's a shame to have to put it on hold, but it is a prudent idea. Until the world economy decides it's ok to keep going, not spending mega bucks is a good way to go. Unfortunately, that means less jobs. It'd be cool if they could do some solar power or wind power on board the Pinnacle. Then Carnival could say they were leading the industry in innovation.

Do you mean like when Windstar puts up the sails and uses the wind??

I will accept that as the compliment in which I'm sure it was intended, and as just payback for the Karaoke Bus incident.

Y'all are cracking me up!

I'm sure if they ever do build it, it will have some industry leading innovations.

The Oasis will have great maneuverability for sure with her Azipod propulsion- I note the Carnival Dream appears to retain the more traditional shafts and rudders.

The Oasis, despite her size shoud be able to dock with a greater degree of self sufficiency and cruise with less vibration (which increases the expected lifespan of the hull)! Thank's for the video Dwayne!

Can you see the size of the masts that would be required?

Billybuzzy, I didn't notice that on the Dream. I really assumed (bad Penny) that everyone used the azipods now.

Penny - In the shipyard photos during the construction of the Dream I noted there were clearly two shafts protruding from the stern, clearly meaning that the Dreams' propulsion is quite conventional!!

Yes, the Carnival Dream has shafts and rudders instead of the Azipods. The design of the ship to my understanding was an evolution of the original Destiny class and then the Conquest class ships, which all have traditional propulsion. I think they had a falling out with Rolls about problems with the Azipods on some of the Fantasy and Spirit class ships.

Congratulations Billy! Cruise Guru!
