MARINA BAY (skyline, waterfront pics)

A lot of excitement has been generated over the future developments planned for the area, which is now already a popular spot with its waterfront and views of the skyline.

So how about some pics all around the bay?!

Anyway here are some ideas of the future development:

Uhoh, didn't spot it at first, thanks ^ ^
What a pity ! It reminds me that poor old France transatlantic ship (also known as "Norway" after it was bought over) is rotting at Port Klang in Malaysia... Really a beautiful vessel... More than 300m long. I should go there to take some pics of it some day.

That is one of the great ocean liners of the past, almost the same league as the France.

Norway is actually the same ship :-)
The France was bought over in 1974 (?) by a norwegian cruise company. They renamed it and added a superstructure at the top. It stopped operating in 2003 after a boiler accident and was brought to Port Klang, where there were plans to sell it and transform it in a floating hotel-casino or to scrap it. But it seems the plans were abandonned so it should still be there. Maybe some of our malaysian forumers would have some ideas about the fate of the ship ?

Hmmm... Sorry for the off-topic ^ ^

Oooooooooo..I use to think they were sister ships, like Titanic and Olympic.

Did you know that the Jhare Viking(world's largest ship) was reparied in Singapore? The most amazing thing is that it could fit in Keppel Hrbour, when it can't even pass through the English Channel when fully laden.

off topic.

Yes, the "SS Norway" is in Malaysia (Image | 315.6m long/ 33,8m wide/2032 passangers). There was a fire on the ship in may 2003, which caused some demage. The owner Norwegian Cruise Line has not announced any planns for the ship yet as far as i can tell.

Anyway, Singapore skyline will be so unique and amazing when The Sail and all the other buildings around Marina Bay is completed.
