Up to now I only posted planes in FD for my Southern Pacific AU, but now I think it's time to set sails and head out to sea... :lol:
I start with two classes of cruise ships, operated by Auckland based Island Cruise Lines:
First up is Cook-Class, a fleet of ten expedition cruise ships based on Recherche's Remark Class. Main difference is the LPD-like well deck that holds a 34m tender at the cost of passenger accommodations. The Cook-Class offers place for about 760 passengers in cabins and suits and all the usual luxury. On their voyages the ships cruise the islands of the Southern Pacific but can also visit polar regions, as they have Ice-Class E4 (Germanischer Lloyd) which allows them to deal with ice up to one meter.
All ten ships and tenders are named according to Captain Cooks voyages.

Second in line are the three Pacifica-Class cruise liners, except for the funnels exact copies of the french CS Normandie. Island Cruise Lines bought the original Normandie after WWII (she never burned out in NY) and used her up to the late 1990s as their flagship. Still oil-powered, the decission was made to withdraw her from service for environmental reasons and convert her to a luxurious hotel ship. First she was to be replaced by typical modern design cruise ships, but in the end her beautiful lines where reproduced but her technique was state of the art now, using Azipods, powered by KEAs cold fission technology.
The ships roam the oceans of the world offering luxurious cabins and suits for up to 2000 passengers, pampered by a crew of 1463.

They both look great! I'm glad you could use the Remark class and I like the tender :)
The only issue I have is that I didn't draw the Normandie so as far as I can tell there is no need for my name in the credits.

I like those two drawings. The first one especially.
Some issues regarding the Aotearoa:
First the three funnels look wrong, the foremost one near the mast is really redundant.
Also I fail to understand your reasoning for the German flag and the one of Messageries Maritimes.
Other than than, these are exceptionally good works.

Will we get to see Normandie in her post-war glory and her hotel ship days, by any chance? :)

My main concern with the Cook Class is that I simply don't see an economic justification for having such a large tender. It would likely be better to use the same tenders that you have used on the Pacifica Class, and remove a single lifeboat from each side.
