I don't care if it's a little grass shack...as long as I get on the ship

It is certainly colorful and easy to spot from a distance.

It looks fine to me. I've seen cruise ship interiors that were a lot worse.

Can you say "Farcus".

Take care,
Mike

Default Ugly

In whose eyes is it "ugly"...As long as I get to the plane and not hassled by the TSA... I don't care... Suddenly everybody is an urban planner and knows whar is right, maybe for that country...it is..

If they took out the Easter eggs from the center, I think it would look nice. One thing for sure is that you sure could not miss seeing the terminal, if you were close to it!!!!

If you want to see REALLY UGLY cruise terminals, visit Manhattan, San Francisco, Miami, San Juan, or San Pedro.

Manhattan, NYC one might be ugly, but as a Bostonian who has the Black Falcon Pier I consider the people who work there the greatest men and woman...seriously..As for the worst..I went to Miami twice and have sworn never again, I'd rather cruise from Europe.

I like it ! Most of the terminal's we've sailed from had more in common with a warehouse than anything remotely artistic !

I would rather be in an insanely ugly cruise terminal than an equally beautiful courthouse any time, and you may quote me on that.

I think that upon a closer look - yes, it really is ugly

In the same sense that some of the more modern buildings in Europe are ugly.




and more!

The first picture is somewhat blah but the second one is quite interesting and not unpleasant to look at. I guess, like art and beauty, it is in the eye of the beholder.

Take care,
Mike

The first one might be ugly because someone slapped it upside the head. The second one looks like a cool design for a cymbal case.
