Hi BobS

LOFOTEN was the fourth Hurtigruten ship with the funnel aft.
RAGNVALD JARL (1956),FINNMARKEN (1956) and HARALD JARL (1960). Everybody liked the style.

In my opinion, these Costa ships with their straight-up-and-down funnels are rather good lookers and I would not condemn them as ugly just because they are modern. In fact, I do not think that the LOFOTEN, with its squat, too-far-aft funnel, is particularly handsome. Both, though, are no doubt well designed for their respective roles. Aesthetics are always a matter of "in the eye of the beholder".

Hi Mr. DOT
They were built for two different reasons,and 45 years
between them.
