Toronto Globe and Mail..."In a surprise move RCL has announced a new build for Celebrity Cruises, to be completed in 2006. This new ship promises to be the largest to date in this upscale, mass market arm of RCL. The designers have promised no thruster vibration, no engine noise, no body roll, and very low emmissions.
Upon completion of the hull the entire ship will be taken to Fort Lauderdale where it will continue to outfitted. The final construction phase will be to encase the entire lower third of the hull in concrete to make it completely immobile for it's entire existance.
This is being done to satisfy those who want a cruise ship to be as stable as a hotel..."
i know a guy named Tony who dabbles in concrete, have to mention the boat thing to him. problem is, his customers dont want it to float!

Light faded from shore and I was alone. Stars above, wind ahead, and the soft splash of a bow wave. My mind at peace, my thoughts serene, I knew I was in love...

During the Battle of the Atlantic, one idea was to build "floating air fields" about three times the size of the largest air craft carrier, the material was a combination of ice and some kind of chemical. Apparently the chemical prevented the ice from melting . The plans were drawn up for and proposed by Lord Montbatten.
I am suprised you didn't throw this into the mix Danno
