Project Genesis Will Be The World's Largest Cruiseship
It's like nothing that has ever been built. We've watched cruise ships get larger and larger and now Royal Caribbean International has ordered the world's largest and most expensive cruise ship. Aker Yards in Finland will be making the new ship, currently known as Project Genesis. The ship will cost around $1 billion, making it the most expensive ship ever ordered. It will be a 1,181-foot ship and will hold 5,400 passengers. The massive ships will be 43% larger than the current behemoth, Aker's "Freedom of the Seas," which will be the world's largest cruise ship when it is delivered to Royal Caribbean in April. The new ship should be delivered in late 2009.
