It ain't pretty, but I guess that doesn't really matter as we'd all still rather be a billionaire looking out of the porthole, rather than just someone looking in!

Yeah, but have you seen what they spend it on?!

Wealthy eastern Europeans skiing would be hilarious if they weren't so rude, miserable and able to ski.

The women look like rough pornstars on Ice and the fellas look like vacant bruisers at a tacky ski themed fancy dress party.

Money only buys stuff.

Just goes to show money cannot buy you taste, its ugggly.

Best yacht in my opinion is the Maltese Falcon, saw it sailing from Malta a few years ago, very nice indeed.
