The differences between a cruise ship and ocean liner are large and noticeable. Ocean liners usually take passengers on trips from one point to another, while cruises are round trip journeys with a greater amount of food and fuel required. Ocean liners are also built stronger and with larger capacities in general, but lack many of the luxurious amenities that cruises have, such as multiple pools or shops. Both ocean liners and cruises, however, are nearly identical in build and shape to each other. Several extremely famous ships are the Titanic, her sister the Olympic, and the Mauritania. As of this year, 2011, the largest ship of this type in the world is the MS Allure of the Seas.
This is because many of these models are often older than others. Pirates and their ships hold a great sway in history, and as such modelers reproduced these boats over the course of many centuries. This act has filled the market with a variety of these models. The age of a model increases its rustic appeal and monetary value. Recently discovered old models with an age of half a century or more rarely appear on the market, and as such are bought as quickly as possible by enthusiasts. More than anything else, the ships are prized for their old world charm and rich back story. George is an avid collector and connoisseur of all things nautical- nautical decor, wooden pirate ship models, historical artifacts, ship models etc. He has written articles for several large manufacturers and retailers of model ships, and he is a master ship builder himself. He brings a unique perspective from both the retail and the consumer side of the nautical decorating and model boat building markets.
Tall ships began to undergo a transformation when new technologies came to light. Ships with taller hulls and decks began to emerge. Schooners of the time had always been streamlined, but now they were transformed to a larger ships that could carry much more cargo. War was what many of these ships were best suited for. Loads that were significantly more heavy and dense could be carried by these ships with great ease. The transfer of food, medicine, and guns to their troops was greatly increased when countries employed these ships. The war effort by England around the world to control more countries was made easier by the aid of these ships.
As we have continued to move inventories out of bricks and mortar buildings and into the cloud, retailers have seen stock levels in North America fall to much lower levels. Cost concerns have led manufacturers to source manufacturing in countries with lower wage levels, fewer health benefits, and longer working hours. Unfortunately, these moves have also provided barriers to effective and efficient information concerning product availability and longer delivery times in some cases. In order to address product availability, longer lead times, higher shipping costs, and extremely price conscious retailers (as an extension of their customers), distributors have been taking steps to improve their ability to provide cost effective products. Sometimes, in a smaller marketplace (like Canada), this can mean a limited supply of product in the warehouse, a longer ordering cycle, and longer shipping times in order to take advantage of lower cost transportation systems. And we retailers arent all saints either.
