History ship


Jan van Dam faced a new challenge in 1989. He started as a sailor on the MS Oldenhove, a ship with a captain owner, but he managed to work his way up to helmsman with dispensation within a short space of time.

Navimor ship

Merchant ship


The article also stated that MISC already operates vessels with helipads in their Offshore Floating Facilities fleet, but what they may have not realised are that such ships are tethered production and storage vessels, and the helipad conversions they have installed may not be suitable for a vessel that is supposed to be sailing in speed and in climatically challenging environment as can be seen from this photo of the various vessels.

Corveto ship


As the Navy decommissions the last of its frigates (FFG-7s), only Aegis cruisers and destroyers will remain to conduct basic naval missions like drug interdiction, search and rescue, coastal reconnaissance, special anti-terrorist operations, and blockades. Devoting large sophisticated ships with 322 crewmen for simple missions is a tremendous waste of resources.

Urals star ship

Titanic ship


Most new ships have sterns that look like the back of a bus when compared to the sterns of the great ocean liners. A fantail and a slender superstructure just do not maximize profit. Funnels are no longer things of beauty either. In the past, they used to represent power and speed.

carnival destiny ship


Victoria ship

American ship


In 1900 there were 356 reefer ships sailing on the oceans. Today there are 1,013 (CIA Factbook, 2007) reefer ships. I thought this seemed like a modest increase across more than a century, until I discovered that most cold or frozen shipping these days is done in shipping containers.

British ship


the pirates been able to capture a ship full of people - and not just people, but wealthy Westerners, a lot of them presumably American - the piracy story in the Gulf of Aden may have been taken to an ominous new level. It is looking like a titanic ship

Amazing ship



The interior design of the Solstice-class ships is a world apart from the retro-style favoured by Cunard and Holland America, and the garish Joe Farcus designs on board Carnival and Costa

Epic ship


If you've already seen sister ship Celebrity Solstice, then they will probably look familiar, because the two vessels are almost identical, with subtle changes of d├ęcor. They are also an indication of what Celebrity Eclipse will look like when it is delivered next year for a season sailing out of the UK.
