We're thinking about joining you all on Genesis, but, since it's the Fall, timing might be problem with the kids in school. We're booking our first cruise ever after the holidays, we're planning taking the Grand Princess group cruise you have formed here. Since we're novices, can someone tell me how much larger Genesis is going to be than today's average cruise ship?

Project Genesis, the largest cruise ship to ever make it from drawing
board to production made a significant step in its journey towards the
sea today (11th December) at Aker Yards ship yard in Turku, Finland.

At
the milestone keel-laying ceremony, the first blocks constructing the
220,000 GRT Project Genesis were laid into the bottom of the dry dock.
From here the ship will begin to take its form for the first time.

At 40% larger than any other cruise ship in the world, Project Genesis
– the working title applied by cruise line Royal Caribbean
International, the company behind its development – is scheduled to
enter service in Autumn 2009. Project Genesis will be homeported
year-round from Port Everglades, Fort Lauderdale in Florida.
Project Genesis is 1,180 feet long, 154 feet wide, and 240 feet high
and will accommodate over 5,400 guests. The ship will take 5,800
man-years to complete and is expected to float on water for the first
time in Winter 2008 as it nears the finishing stages. At a cost of
US$230,000 per berth, Project Genesis is the most expensive cruise ship
ever to be ordered.
Jo Rzymowska, managing director, Royal Caribbean International, UK and Ireland commented:“A leisure resort development of the scale of Project Genesis is
confirmation of the rate at which cruising is growing as a holiday
option. Over 1.55million Brits are forecast to take a cruise in 2008,
and the pace of growth is accelerating faster than anticipated by
industry body the Passenger Shipping Association. With ships like
Project Genesis the options at sea really are giving land-based holiday
resorts a run for their money.”
Standing upright bow-to-stern,
Project Genesis would dwarf the One Canada Square building at Canary
Wharf and New York’s Chrysler Building. The ship is also one and a half
times taller than the O2 Arena and is longer than four football
pitches.
Ships already in the Royal Caribbean International
fleet feature surfing wave pools, rock climbing walls, ice skating
rinks, children’s water parks and shopping centre-style complexes.
Project Genesis is projected to carry on this tradition and include new
facilities never before seen at sea. Jo Rzymowska continued:
“There simply are no limits when it comes to what could possibly
feature onboard Project Genesis. Royal Caribbean International
guarantees to push physical and creative boundaries with its next
generation of cruise ship.”
Royal Caribbean International has
a second ship of this scale, Project Genesis II on order from Aker
Yards. Project Genesis II is scheduled to be completed in August 2010,
and the first Project Genesis ship will begin taking guests in Autumn
2009.
