The QM2 may be bigger, but from what I have seen she doesn't hold candle to our Lady Titanic for beauty.

HI Lights

She is a ugly beast in my opinion. I stick by the fact I said a long time ago she looks like a Ice skate waiting to topple.

Don't forget she has Huge stabilizers, and it's a pear-shaped hull - she may look like she's capsize, but it would take a pretty huge wave broadside to do it.

HI TTF

Yes I have no doubt it would, I watched her sail past Scarborough on her way to Edingbourgh the other week and she dont look good in the water.

Yes. The QM2 is currently the largest ship pulling in at 1113 ft long and 150,000 tons. But nothing can match the Titanic emoticon

Call me a superstitious sailor at heart, but the QM2 gives me a good case of the willies. She's drawn blood even before she sailed (the people killed when a gangway collapsed), so I fully expect a major disaster sometime along the way. She may be the biggest, but the best? NO WAY! All the REAL beauties have either been scrapped or sent to the bottom!!! emoticon emoticon
