 In an age when your ship can appear in the background to a million social media posts it pays to make it not look like it's an ugly POS. Operators with high standards know that to make their ships look good is to make their brands look good.

I much agree, maybe even for 100%. However, although this would certainly apply for the cruise industry, I see companies spreading the same or similar design over various brands. Princess' Grand-class is seen with P&O Cruises for years and will be seen at P&O Australia very soon. HAL's Vista class is also seen at P&O Cruises, as well as similar designs for Costa, Carnival and Cunard. Carnival and Costa have been sharing otherwise distinctive designs for years, and from Carnival's/Costa's Dream-class one is being built for a new Chinese brand. To make matters worse, AIDAnova will have sisters with Costa, P&O Cruises AND Carnival.

I believe it was Knud E. Hansen himself who said every passenger should believe their ship was the best looking in the port, no matter how many other ships are present. This advise seems long forgotten.

As for the P&O design, I believe the basis is not too bad, although I needs quite a bit of refinement get a wow factor apart from just its size.

"A Hansen ship is a handsome ship" so the saying went.
