Aquitania is thought to have been the most beautiful of all the four-stackers.  In fact, she even earned herself the nickname as the "Ship Beautiful".  Even today, her name brings the image of the illustrious pre-World War I floating palaces.  She was long and slender, and had four funnels, which all worked, which means that they were all used to disperse smoke and exhausts, instead of any number of them being ventilators.  Furthermore, she had a pleasing counter stern.
