Royal Caribbean Makes Surprising Statement About Next Cruise Ship

When Wonder of the Seas began sailing from Fort Lauderdale in March, it claimed the title of the largest cruise ship in the world. It took that crown from its sister ship Symphony of Seas, which began sailing in 2018.

In reality, Royal Caribbean has dominated the “biggest cruise ship in the world” competition, essentially trading that title between the previous Oasis-class ship and the next one. The Oasis class debuted with Oasis of the Seas in 2009.

“Oasis of the Seas was the largest cruise ship in the world when it was launched in 2009,” according to U.S. News and World Report. “As the line’s debut Oasis-class ship, it is five times bigger than the Titanic, weighing in at 220,000 gross tons and 1,187 feet. The vessel was amplified in November 2019 and now carries up to 5,606 guests and 2,109 crew members.”
