Actually there are five Voyager class vessels. You forgot the Explorer Of The Seas.

Then look at the Grand Class ships of Princess (Grand P, Golden P, Caribbean P, etc.) and the larger Carnival ships of the Destiny class and her bretheren for the remaining spots.

- ba lenght
- by tonnage

Frase,

this is the English section of my web site which also includes the three lists Uwe already mentioned.

Currently, the ten largest cruise ships in terms of tonnage (which is the "official" size indicator) are:

#1 "Freedom of the Seas"
#2 "Queen Mary 2"
#3 "Navigator of the Seas"
#4 "Mariner of the Seas"
#5 "Explorer of the Seas"
#6 "Voyager of the Seas"
#7 "Adventure of the Seas"
#8 "Diamond Princess"
#9 "Sapphire Princess"
#10 "Costa Concordia"

Some ships' tonnage is identical. In that case, the earlier ship receives the higher ranking.

Wow, I'm surprised that the CCL Conquest didn't make the top ten. I would have thought that 114,000 gtons would have been enough. It just shows how big the ships are getting. Pretty soon half of these won't make the cut..

I'd forgotten that Costa had a copy of the Carnival Conquest - the Concordia, which I guess is just a tad heavier than the Conquest.

Funny thing about those large Princess ships is that they are big, but you look down at them from the top of the Freedom Of The Seas.

I was just reading Rauol's website. I read the section on future builds. So, Royal Caribbean is building a 220K Ton+ Vessel!

The information says it will be launched sometime in 2008.

Wow! Is that supposed to be a ship? More like a moving island

Frase,

yes, that's the so-called "Project Genesis".
