MS Koningsdam
This ship won't be going to sea until 2016, she is still being built, but this is what she will look like.
99,500 gross tons she will take 2650 passengers and 1025 crew.
Because my cousin is on the design team we get to be one of the first to see what she will look like.
That's a lot of ship.

I have to agree with Tractacus. Can't people just book passages on tramp steamers to lonely places any more? Maybe I've read too much Somerset Maugham?

If you cast around a bit you can still book a cabin on a merchantmen of today.

I did go to sea with The Grey Funnel Line and many is the time I would have traded my berth for a passengers berth on something like this, oh yes!

I guess what I'd like to do is get into my time machine and sail on an Old American President Lines steamship from San Francisco to the exotic Orient!

I remember seeing ships of the President line in the Far East, they had a huge eagle painted on each of their funnels if I remember correctly.
