Very cool, Kuki. This gives you some perspective on design and comparison. We have been on Voyager and Explorer and loved them, especially the Promenade and Mardi Gras parades. We didn't feel crowded at all, but with Freedom and this new class I'm not so sure. There's also the point made about the ship's population being larger than most islands'. Try one of these on islands like Grand Cayman with 8 other ships in port for the day.
Impressive, most impressive.
i just don't know about a ship that huge.
200,000 tons carrying approx 6,000 passengers.
She will put a huge crunch on the islands. I don't think that the islands are prepared to handle that population explosion.
Here's the 4-1-1 on Project Genesis, got this information from the L.A. Times business section on Feb 7, 2006.
Cost: 1.24 Billion
Gross Registered Tons: 220,000
Delivery: Fall 2009
Length: 1,180 feet
Width at water level: 154 feet
Hieght: 240 feet
Currently the largest cruise ship is Queen Mary 2 at 151,400 tons. But in June, Freedom of the Seas at 160,000 tons will overtake it. Freedom of the Seas will carry 3,600 passengers double occupancy and 4,370 maximum.
WOW!!!!, imagine the lines after the cruise trying to clear customs. :)
Does anyone really want to be on a ship this large. I don't think you would feel like your sailing, so whats the point. And where would it go, I'm sure only a handful of ports would be able to accomadate it. I wonder if it will be equipped with an airport :D
