Titanic is in foreground. Allure of the Seas Cruise Ship in background

Since today is the day we are pedantic and accurate, that Tilly;) is an image of the Titanic (possibly) against an image of the cruise ship. Unless of course Clive's ship is finished and it is a photo of his. Lets hope they have someone more competent than the master of the Costa Concordia in charge of it.

They are, without a doubt, Images of the aforementioned ships.

If you ever get a chance to go on ANY of the xxxx of the Seas Cruise ships (Viking Cruise lines) then jump at it. They are the most amazingly fitted out ships. We have done a couple of the cruises out of the USA and they have been amazing.

Except that the Titanic will have much bigger bow waves even though it is smaller... Why?

Indeed; correct again, Sir. The object, for those of you that don't know, creates a bow wave half a (bow wave) wavelength ahead of the bow so that the bow wave and it cancel each other out...

The intermediary step was when they made ship hulls to a length that was a multiple of the wavelength of the bow wave so that the bow wave assisted rather than hindered the speed of the ship; I read somewhere it came in in WWII where speed was critical what with the hunting U-boat pack. Was worth a couple of knots I believe...

I'd never thought I'd see the day that the Titanic would looks so small by comparison!
