Another entry in our ‘Monsters of the Seas”-category: The Celebrity Solstice; some whopping facts: 314.9 m long, 36.9m wide, a GT of 121.878, max speed 24 knots. 1500 crew take care of 2850 passengers: making the total population of this vessel (4350 souls) larger than lots of villages in the world.
She isn’t the largest cruiseship in the world, not by far: that honor goes to this one:
Freedom of the Seas
Her measurements: 303.2 * 39.0 m, 154.407 GT, 21.5 knots, 4370 passengers & 1360 crew
Quit hugh, impressive but I think the Celebrity Solstice oozes a bit more class……if you like these kind of ships.
However your opinion is: these 2 vessels and their sisterships are truly Monsters of the Seas. And apparently there are plans in existence for even larger cruisevessels.
