The Largest Cruise Ship in the World

By now most everyone in the cruise industry has heard about and or seen Royal Caribbeans new colossal ship, The Oasis. The largest cruise ship in the world sits 16 stories above the water and if it was stood on it’s end, would be taller than the Chrysler building!

A custom made $75 million port was built in Fort Lauderdale to accommodate it and multiple ports in the Caribbean had to be modified.

The ship is a true modern marvel, comprised of 7 “neighborhoods” it houses 37 bars and restaurants spread over 16 levels. Of course the ship has the now pre-requisite four pools and 10 whirlpools, a rock-climbing wall, a basketball court, a miniature golf course, an ice skating rink, a shopping promenade, a fairground carousel, a central park with 12,000 live plants and trees, and a 1,380-seat theater, that we have all become accustomed to find on today’s modern mega liners.

So when does this trend end? How big will these ships get? Perhaps the next ship will have a football field or a Nascar track?
