I mean it doesn't take much for a high speed liner (take a look at SS United States - 38 knot top speed back in the 60s). But again, like you said, size and speed don't combine well when you're at sea. It's advancing slowly though... Oasis and Allure OTS both have higher cruise speeds than other ships.
