I think Palmer is on to a good thing here. There are many in this world with cash to burn, and in this target market many would opt for the old world aura of a romantic cruise on a replica steamer, while still being able to plug your laptop into a USB plug next to your bed.

This project will never float. He's been banging on about this since 2000 or so. Every year it is re-announced and the launch date shifts accordingly.
