The dry statistics tell only half the tale so here, on the News From Nowhere Blog, I can present, exclusively, for the first time ever, the only picture of the two ships, side by side, in true scale.
As you can clearly see, the great Titanic looks like a stick-insect compared to the Ventura's mighty elephant. Whilst much of the Titanic's height is taken up with those four great funnels, on the Ventura that space is given over to jazz bars, swimming pools and cigar lounges. Keen followers of the Blog will be glad to know that we are not booked on the maiden voyage and the cruise we are going on shouldn't take us anywhere near icebergs. But with climate change the way it is, who knows.
