obviously photo shopped. To be able to cruise while laying on your side would be cool though!

Must not watch the news much... Remember the cruise ship that grounded near Italy I believe?? They just removed it a month or so ago...

No, that's just a really tiny island next to it!



Edit: Speaking of big ships, we watched the Oasis Of The Seas leave Port Lauderdale a couple weeks ago. WOW!
I've seen videos of what the water does (think displacement) but seeing it in person was indescribable. As soon as it passed that small beach on the inside of the inlet (the one that 2-3 feet of depth gets completely drawn out as it passes) there was what can only be described as a small tidal wave of water rushing back in. I was crazy.
