Yikes....BARTENDER!!! although...compare the size of the peeps on the bows...how much of this is poor pasting?

People were taller back thenBig Smile

Just a matter of perspective ... ever look at the original 1964 Mercury or following Gemini space craft and compared them to the Apollo or Space Shuttles .... 

 

Yep..gives a whole new meaning to "massive"...notice the actual hgt of the bow above the water line is actually almost the same.  that's why I questioned the "perspective"...anybody happen to know those numbers?

 

From an observer's point of view, looking at the depiction, the Titanic is 882.8 feet closer to the viewer. Meaning a person on the bow of the Titanic is going to appear larger than someone of equal size on the bow of the Allure of the Seas.   The Titanic was a vessel with no "Rake" to the bow while the Allure has quite a bit of rake. In addition, the Titanic was a double well decker while the Allure is not. Not that rake or well decks would have anything to do with the apparent size of people on board but the vessels profile when in the water are significantly different due the design of the ships. Take a look again at the side profile of the two ships, near the top of this article: https://malcolmoliver.wordpress.com/titanic-vs-oasis-of-the-seas/  .    The Titanic had a beam of only 92.5 feet and a length of 882.8 feet, meaning it was a long and skinny vessel. While the Allure has a max beam of almost 200 feet and a length 1,187 feet,  meaning it is almost fat compared to the Titanic.    I would say that the artist or whomever put this depiction together was pretty accurate.    TITANIC   Length: 882 feet, 8 inches/268 meters Gross tonnage: 46,328 tons Net tonnage: 24,900 tons Total capacity: 3547 passengers and crew, fully loaded Decks: 9 in total (counting the orlop deck) the boat deck, A,B,C,D,E,F,G and below G boiler rooms.

 I knew I could count on you for the technical explanation.  It was a good read...I can add that to my vast store of interesting facts...interesting probably only to me however.  Thanks for that. You forced me to unaddle my brain for a few minutes///what an effort...I didn't really want to...now, I have to start all over...cheers!!
