Spectacular images inside world's largest cruise ship five times bigger than the Titanic
| Last updated
If you’re interested in seeing what life on the world’s largest cruise ship might be like, get ready, because we’ve got some images to show you that exhibit the incredible things to do on board.
The ship is set to make her maiden voyage in January 2024, but it’s already been made and is currently undergoing open sea testing.
It’s five times bigger than the Titanic, and - to put it bluntly - it’s absolutely f***ing massive.
It has been reported that the Icon of the Seas has already taken around £5 million in advance ticket sales, with loads of people queuing up to take a spin around the Caribbean on board.
The ship is 20 decks high, two more than the previous record holder, which is also a Royal Caribbean boat.
The liner is 1,198 feet long and has a gross tonnage of 250,800, as well as having the world’s largest onboard waterpark and the world’s tallest freefall water slide at sea.
There’s a lot going on with this boat, in short.
There are 40 bars and restaurants and you’ll not be short of stuff to do, with a surfing simulator, mini golf, ice rink, zip line, rock climbing wall, an obstacle course, and an arcade.
Like we said - f***ing massive.
On board, there’s room for around 7,600 passengers and 2,350 crew, taking the official capacity to around 10,000 people at any given time.
There’s a three-storey ‘townhouse’ on board which is the largest cabin at sea, and can sleep eight people, featuring a slide that drops from the top of the cabin to the bottom.
What a holiday that would be, right?
It also has a private lift, in case you fancy a different method of getting down.
Why would you, though?
Opening up on the project, an insider told Mirror Online: "This is the future.
“People can sneer but the sales figures show this is precisely what tourists want.
“Our lines have been ringing non-stop since she went on sea trials last week.
“People have been saving hard for the holiday of a lifetime - and this is it."
Contrary to what you might think, this vessel is actually one of the more ecological at sea, powered by natural gas.
Royal Caribbean CEO Michael Bayley said: "Looking at the energy and time that has gone into this ship, it's mind-blowing."
It certainly is very impressive, if cruise liners are your thing.
