Plumbing has been a nightmare on this ship.

A month ago, while still in Papenburg, they accidentally pressurized an open water line inside the ship and flooded 48 cabins, to the tune of around 1m in damage (and considerable delay.)

The picture above is just a small part of a ridiculously complex system of plumbing that no doubt gave some solidworks designer multiple orgasms as he was drawing it, and yet serves the simple purpose of pumping water from the pool system up into the top of the aft funnel in order to supply the AquaDuck. A single, straight section of pipe with one 90 degree bend would have sufficed, but that wouldn't have looked cool enough.

The Ducky Dinghy. When it's finished, there's a life-sized Donald Duck inside rowing it. You can see the cutout where his bottom mates with the assembly just above the life ring.

It's Fantasy, the fourth ship in the Disney Cruise Lines fleet. They're based in the US, however the ship is being constructed in Germany by Meyer Werft. She left the shipyard a few weeks ago and moved to Bremerhaven for final outfitting. On the 16th they depart for the US, arriving in New York on May 1 for the christening, then heading down to Port Canaveral in Florida to begin her normal Caribbean service.

The yard is really an amazing place. Their indoor drydock (which is the second-largest building in the world after Boeing's final-assembly plantin Seattle) houses two ships side-by-side, with a staging area between them, and they crank out about one of these per year.

Joe, that's really badass.

Kind of random but, given your expertise, have you ever been on an offshore oil platform?

I'm sure there is no gap in the solidworks model; must be a mistake by a guy reading the drawing, not the engineer.
