I started studying naval engineering in Helsinki in -75, but drifted into press photography a few years later. If that did not happen, I might have found myself designing and building these here in Finland... The biggest cruiser ship in the world that one is, by the way.

Two inches longer than the Oasis and it is a monster indeed.

Two inches longer than the Oasis and it is a monster indeed.

They were built from the same drawings, but different time of the year: steel expands and contracts with temperature changes and in a ship over 300m long it means in this case 2" tolerances... Allure was built during the winter, Oasis in the summer.
