Thank you Sharon.
Once again I have been reminded that I should think before posting as that is a very valid point.
I should be ashamed .
But it did put a shiver up my spine this morning when I saw it.
Last time it was in NZ it was on a German charter cruise in 1999.
In designing one must exploit every possibilities.
So it is just exploiting every possible design of a cruise ship's funnel. It is an adventure. I will say the design may not be that appealing to the eyes but it is one of the most interesting I've seen.
There must be a reason or logic why the funnel was design this way.
I can't say I've ever seen anything quite like that......really different!

i was not criticizing really. the ugly was making me laugh as a matter of fact. i was just saying for myself, just being on a ship ( no matter how strange ) the thrill of the cruise would be worth it. i did not mean to seem nasty hehehehe.
That's just weird. What in the world do they use it for and why? I can see a railing around it but unless there is some way to access this area, (and i'm sure there is somehow), then it makes no sense. Crew only deck? Helipad? Which would seem strange as they would have to climb steps or ladders to get there.
