Important to note: There is a difference between displacement when talking about air craft carriers and tankers versus the interior volume of cruise ships. For example, the Voyager class have an interior volume of 138,000 tons. Who knows what their actual displacement is??? I think is is far less than 138,000. Roland? Norm? I guess I can try to find it...

I read "Supertankers" awhile back and it was written in the 70's about how dangerous those ships were. They had drafts close to 90 feet, some of them.
