Thanks

Cunard with the QEII is the largest and it is owned by Carnival Corp. The largest ship that sails under the Carnival banner are those of the Conquest Class.

Are you sure about that? I thought the Queen Mary II was the largest cruise ship, not the QEII.

Largest Cruise Vessels:
The appropriately named Queen of the ships is Cunard's Queen Mary 2, entered service late last year. Around 150,000 tons
Behind that the previous champions were Royal Caribbean's Voyager Class: Voyager of the seas (1999) , Explorer of the seas (2000) , Adventure of the seas (2001) , Navigator of the seas (2002) , Mariner of the seas (2003). I have sailed on Voyager, Adventure, and Navigator. Adventure I sailed in the inaugural season, and Navigator on the preinaugural cruise. 142,000 tons
Carnival's largest class in service is the Conquest Class, which is 110,000 tons. Carnival Conquest (2002), Carnival Glory (2003), Carnival Valor (entering service 12/2004), Carnival Liberty (entering service 7/2005)
The largest cruise ship before Voyager, though, was Princess Cruises' Grand Princess, at 109,000 tons (1998)
Prior to Grand, the carnival Destiny Class held the prestigious title, as well as the first to break 100,000 tons. At 101,000+ tons, Carnival Destiny (101,353; 1996), Carnival Triumph (101,509;1999) and Carnival Victory (101,509; 2000) are the members of this class.

QM2: 1,152 feet
Voyager: 1,020 feet
{Carnival Conquest- 952 feet}
Grand Princess: 951 feet

Re: Re: Re: Which cruise line has the largest ship?
 
So which size of ship do most people like better? Large or small?

I am just trying to get an idea which would be best for my cruise and all your input is so helpful.

Thanks

I've cruised the Conquest-class GLORY and the Spirit-class PRIDE.

Find the GLORY's layout very confusing and frustrating. The PRIDE has a much simpler layout that seems to lend itself to comfortable movement about the ship. She's also smaller and more intimate, IMHO.

In particular I like the openess of the LIDO deck on the aft of the PRIDE. The GLORY's aft lido deck is enclosed.

Haven't done the QM2 [yet] but have done all the other large class ships. CCL, RCCL, Princess. Have also done ships as small as 17000 tons and smaller yet, I think.
Large or small, makes no difference to me. Cruises come in 3 flavors, Good, Better, and Best
Good-One I've done
Better- one I'm about to do
Best-one I'm doing
