You're probably right sam, £1.2 billion spent on a liner with no thought going into the safty aspect.
Cruise ships that size are capsizing all the time, it's high time they realised this.

Yes, I agree. I reckon I've seen prettier looking freight ships! But no doubt plenty of people said the same when the first exclusively steam powered ships were lauched!

Don't be a daft lass. The top is all empty cabins which are very light.
Down below you have heavy machinery, engines, pumps, fuel tanks, water tanks, sewage tanks.
It's safer than crossing the street.

"you'll never catch me on it, "

Thankfully, let's hope you're right about that.
