Dave, thank you for demystifying the Vision Class; I've never quite understood it. And I'm struck by the similarities with Princess' Grand Class. Grand Class is the blanket name for nine ships but...

Very well said, janfred; is that too much to ask for? I think not; but as ships get bigger and bigger it gets harder to find. I love Holland Americas smaller ships, like Veendam; and I loved...
