The world's 10 largest cruise ships

The world's 10 largest cruise ships | Cruise Line Industry | Scoop.it
To be honest, the world's 10 largest cruise ships are more like small cities than little schooners. The various dining options are plentiful, the spas offer every treatment imaginable and the theatrical entertainment is world-class.

It's amazing to see all of the new features and technologies of these "floating cities." I would love to cruise on one of these fabulous ships for a week because it will give me more time to enjoy and take advantage.

What is amazing to me is that these huge heavy ships actually float! Thank you for sharing!

This is great! They really are floating cities, I love that my cruise (MSC) made the list :)

I want a floating adventure minus the megaship, insane crowds, bad food, and shuffleboard.

Laura Piza's insight:

I thought this article was interesting because it acknowleges the common hesitations of travelers to try cruising while giving great alternatives than the normal chains such as Carnival and Royal Caribbean. I would love to try the Silverseas Cruises because it is more flexible than any other cruise I have experienced.

I definitely have to go on a cruise this year. I love Silversea's idea of personalizing you itinerary.

The largest cruise ship sailing from Galveston boasts an industry first. Royal Caribbean’s “Navigator of the Seas” has 81 rooms with virtual balconies.

Laura Piza's insight:

This is a really great concept! Many cruisers would love to have a balcony stateroom, but it is not always possible, so this is a great alternative. It may not be the real thing, but it allows passengers to feel like they are truly on a ship enjoying the sea. It also allows passengers to check the weather before leaving their stateroom, which is a nice feature.

This is an awesome concept. Almost everyone wants a balcony stateroom but sometimes can't afford the luxury of obtaining one on their cruise. I wish future cruise liners would look into this idea and implement it on the newer ships. I'd be interested in getting a virtual balcony room for sure!
Ashley Wilson's comment, February 12, 2014 6:16 PM
I actually wanted to speak about this last class. I thought it was really cool to have a virtual balcony for the interior staterooms since they cannot have an actual balcony. Of course this will never compare to the experience of having an actual balcony, but that is up to the discretion of the passenger.
Ashley Schmelkin's comment, February 14, 2014 3:07 PM
I think this is such an amazing concept. This definitely makes interior staterooms a little more appealing and less bland. It's nice to have a view, and what's even more amazing is that you can change the view to see different cameras and scenery. This is truly revolutionary, I'd love to see it in person.
