The next one they are building has a paint job to resemble a shell suit with frizzy wigs on the funnels. Maybe better for you. Not too stereotypical ....

I often have a look at Norwegian (and other) ships docked at 'Bermuda port webcams' Live cam of the old Royal Navy dockyard - some of the ships are like this one. Other ports are also available.
