In the 1700s engineers started to develop and experiment with steam powered boats. By the 1800s the model paddle wheel steam boats were invented. By 1853 the propeller powered steam boat model was invented proving to be more efficient then the paddle wheel model. This dawned a new era of ship building; steel ships that replaced the traditional wooden model. Some of the most fascinating ships that are still in operation today were when the passenger cruise ships came on the seen. This RMS Titanic cruise ship was built in March 1909. In May 1911 this new steel model ship was launched which was a heavily publicized spectacle. Unfortunately at 11:40 pm on the 14th April 1912 the greatest maritime disaster in history began. Other models include the Normandie Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth of Great Britain.
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.

\"A ship sailing is the most beautiful thing that man has made.\" Anyone who has ever seen a tall ship cutting the waves will agree. As impressive as the sight of such a ship at sea can be many people are fascinated by historic ship models too. Since ancient times ships have not only been used for transport but were also a means of demonstration of power and domination. Even the Egyptian pharaohs designed their vessels very beautifully. Fine ship models of that time were found as burial objects in pharaos graves in pyramids. They are displayed today in museums like the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. In the Mediterranean ships at that time were use by all peoples to travel transport and warfare.
