By the way, here's what that ship would've looked like as QV. I think Cunard missed out with this ship! I just forgot to post this pic. with my original comment! oops!

Yeah, but there going for a contemporarly look with over tones to the past. The qm2, and the victoria use a desing with a bow bulge, I think this is for stability, or allowing it to go through water easier (perhaps both, certainly has a purpose) Titanic's hull was very old fashioned, could trace it's routes back to the old sailing ship days lol. The desing allows for more efficient use, ergo, cheaper to run really, there would be no need for a lot of funnels either. To tell the truth, they would only really do that, if they ever had an incilantion to build and old classic ocean liner. Qv is the closest to that atm.

The trouble with a "Titanic bow" (aka 'knife edged' bow) is it creates drag as the ship moves through the water. The newer bulbous bow design helps to eliminate the drag. Thus, the ship can go faster and not burn up as much fuel.

a new ship the S.S. Queen Victoria being built by cunard line is a sister to the current record holder of the worlds largest ship the S.S.Queen Mary 2 exept the S.S. Queen Victoria will be even larger just as the R.M.S.Titanic and the R.M.S.Olympic were sisters even though the titanic was the bigger one.

hopefully this will help along tghe new intrest in trans-oceanic travel.


Very wrong because queen victoria is going to be 90,000 tonnes 964 feet long and 12 decks not 19 decks high as well as 106 feet broad
