Large boats and ships are not exciting news anymore especially because shipbuilders and cruising companies seem to have entered a race to build the worlds biggest cruise ship. Moving the fastest and in fact leading this seems to be the world famous shipping service Royal Caribbean. This company is also known for having the largest vessels on its fleet and it comes as no surprise when one hears that they are planning to build yet another super sized vessel.
According to various sources, Royal Caribbean will pay a whopping 900 million euros to a company in Europe. This company is in fact the largest ship building company in all of Europe. The company also said that this cruise liner would be able to carry a total of 5400 passengers. This ship is almost bigger by 42 than the worlds current largest liner, Freedom of the seas and will be an achievement when completed. The surprising thing is that Freedom of the seas is also owned by Royal Caribbean and it seems that the company wants to make a record of the worlds most massive ships ever. The ship building company which is based in Oslo, Aker will be designing both of these gigantic beauties.
This ship is going to be called Project Genesis. According to various company officials, the vessel will have many remarkable features and the design of the ship in itself will be bold and daring. This will help the ship to attract lots and lots of visitors who will be awed by the magnificence of the vessel. Along with keeping designs and aesthetics in mind, the ship will also be complete when it comes to technology. All the latest technological improvements will be installed on the ship so that it does not fall back on any factor but leads the world in all. With advanced navigation and safety features installed, there will be no problems in steering the mighty boat through the troubled waters of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
The ship will feature a theme park on the middle deck after Central Park in New York. There will be exotic plants and trees that will be planted on the decks and no part concerning beauty will be left out. To ensure that the plants survive in all the variable climates through which the ship will set sail, these decks will have an advanced micro climate controlling technology installed. This will also ensure that the climate of the decks is also kept optimum so that the visitors do not feel uncomfortable. Richard Fain, the CEO and chairman of Royal Caribbean cruise lines is indeed very proud of this new invention and has huge expectations from it. He says that the architecture and design of the ship is in itself a major leap in terms of existing technologies that are employed when making a ship.
More companies are willing to build the worlds biggest cruise ship because of the number of people who are going on a cruise vacation every year.
