We want to present you the list of the world’s largest cruise vessels.
In the last years cruise industry grew fast. Until 1996, the biggest cruise ships were less than 100, 000 gross tons (a measure of volume and not weight), but today there are 50 ships over 110,000 gross tons.
This list includes ships that are in the service. They are ranked in order of gross tons. Also you can find here the length of every ship and its cruise line.
By the way, do you know the difference between cruise ship and ocean liner? The answer to that, can be found at the end of the list.
Cruise ship is used for pleasure cruises, usually taking passengers on an extended cruisewith occasional calls in various places of interest.
Ocean liner is a ship designed to transport people from one seaport to another along regular long-distance maritime routes according to a schedule, rather than on round trips.
