Royal Caribbean Cruise Deals
Royal Caribbean has the largest cruise ships in the world.
Royal Caribbean Cruise Line once started in the 1970's by building the first new ships for Caribbean cruising. They have continued that heritage, and have for the past two decades been building the world's largest cruise ships. It seems every time one thinks a cruise ship cannot possibly get any bigger, Royal Caribbean wants to prove that they can build an even bigger and better one.
Perhaps now, with the twin giants Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas clocking in at 220,000 tons and a passenger capacity of more than 6,000 people, they have finally reached the limit?
Royal Caribbean's cruise ships come in six different "classes". New cruise ships are usually ordered from shipyards as a series of cruise ships of similar design. This helps keep the cost of construction down. Cruise ship "classes" are used to describe such series of similarly designed ships. Today, when you cruise on Royal Caribbean you will find that these six classes can be grouped into three distinctly different types of cruise ships.
