Welcome home. I'm glad you had a wonderful cruise and thanks for the excellent, balanced review you wrote. One piece of clarifications. Modern ships aren't top heavy. They just look that way. The top part of a ship is filled with "air spaces", cabins, dining rooms. lounges and things that don't weigh much since they're mostly air. The bottoms of ships are filled with engines, turbines, machinery and heavy stuff, so as ugly as I think modern ships look, they are perfectly well balanced.
