Default Anyone see the rendering of the 'Project Genesis' Ships Yet?

Has anyone else besides me, a HUGE cruise addict, seen the Renderings on the new Mega-Ships on the Aker Yards Page?

Here's the link to the latest one that I've seen:
http://www.akeryards.com/upload/ship.../genesis72.jpg

Looks like one or two more "passenger" decks, and a two-story viking crown area for starters.

Also, those lifeboats are going to have to be HUGE. Will be interesting to see how those are handled.

I kind of enjoy the mystery and speculation.

Not only that, I can see there is a new type of stern area on deck 4,5,or 6 *Dance floor, restaurant?* Also there seems to be higher wind breaker walls on deck 12

Yeah, and above the bridge too.

Also, there is no deck below the lifeboats, so it looks like egress to the lifeboats may be right from a deck on the ship, doesn't it? There doesn't seem to be any kind of promenade deck.

I'm also curious as to what those 6 cylindrical things might be...right above where the pool usually is. Maybe they are some sort of super whirlpools or something.

Someone floating around probably knows the scoop, but I'm not one of them.

With steel cutting started only a few months ago and the ID still in the dry dock, there is frankly nothing to be seen yet.

And talking about the dry dock, it is only some 16 ft longer than GN.

That has some information on the two Ships. I think that the Genesis ships are going to have lifeboats hanging on the sides, with clamps securing it to the side, I think there is going to be a promenade deck, because unless they raise then to the boat deck like on old ships, or lower then to the gangways *Last place I want to go is down...* The cylinders look more like Whirlpools or some kind of pool covering I believe that the New Area on the Back of the Ship will be a different form of eating place...like a Second windjammer, as there is going to be a TON of people, one Windjammer won't hold all those people.

This is where the Freedom,Liberty, and Independence of the Seas were built, Genesis will also be built here

I went over to the shipyard site, the only thing mentioned was the yard number the ships were being built at.

No photo's, no nothing. I thought someone on here...or maybe it was the Critic board lived near the shipyard that has sent photo's from time to time on the ships being built??
