Take A Floating Hotel Across the Ocean

Designer Nick Talbot, who worked on Virgin Galactic projects, is proposing a floating hotel he's calling "Aircruise" which would take a leisurely 37 hour journey between London and New York.

The design is purely theoretical at the moment, but Talbot's designs make the Aircruise very attractive.

Interviewed in the Brisbane Times, Talbot said, ""There is a three-level cocktail bar at the bottom of the ship, with a thing that we call a Moon Pool - effectively it's a transparent floor - so on sunset you can sit there with your chums, sip a cocktail and look at the earth passing by underneath you, like [you're] a goddess."

The Aircruise would carry 100 passengers and 20 crewmembers.
