Re: Nomadic, Titanic & other historic vessels

It is alledgedly a faithful reproduction with the exception of the 'acorns', which have been carved as closed as a mark of respect What kind of a daft idea is that? Am I missing something about closed acorns? Was about 5 years ago when I last went, so can't remember exactly what the interpretation ...

Re: Nomadic, Titanic & other historic vessels

Nice photos Mike. The ones with the 'ghost' ships are particularly thought provoking. I've done the Titanic experience in Orlando a couple of times and thought it was bloody fantastic! They have guides portraying characters from the time (we had a lady traveller one time and a shipyard worker anothe...
