Today’s Incredible Cruise Liners

Cruise ships that sail around the world today are truly massive and incredible feats of engineering. The vessels that we see today, with their own ballrooms, deck top pools, terraces and casinos evolved from the older Ocean Liners that were used for passage across the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

Because it was the only mode of transformation, the rich also began to demand more and more luxurious cabins and incredibly extravagant creations were built. Many associate the Ocean Liner with the tragic fate of the Titanic, which sank after striking an iceberg on its way from the United Kingdom to the United States.

Today’s cruise ships can traverse vast oceans, but they are designed more for pleasure cruising, normally on a round trip encompassing a number of stops at different places along the way.

Popular cruises include The Caribbean, The Mediterranean, Norwegian fjords and Australia. There are also cruises where the ships will offer parties and great food, not going to any destination, but just sailing on the ocean.

The biggest cruise liners in the world are owned by the Royal Caribbean Cruise Liner company and their flagship is the Harmony of the Seas. She was launched in 2016 and is a whopping 1,188 feet in length.

The two next largest ships in terms of length belong to the same company, but the next one in line belongs to the Italian cruise company MSC. The MSC Meraviglia was built in 2017 and is not far behind at 1,033 foot long.

There is not much to choose between the rest, and most of the large cruise ships are over 1,000 feet in length. Other companies that own such Ships include Norwegian Cruises, P&O Cruises, Disney Cruises, Costa Cruises and Carnival Cruises. These ships usually cater to around 5,000 guests, and the amenities on board even include water parks and golf greens!
