Ships today, mega ships as they are known, are as big as some aircraft carriers. But how big are they and how do we measure them?
Cruise ships are evaluated based on their gross tonnage (gt), which despite its name is a volume calculation, basically how much inside space on a ship.
Royal Caribbean continues to dominate the top spots for the biggest ships, coming in around 228 thousand gt in size. For context, the Titanic was a mere 46,329 gt, which means you could fit almost 5 Titanics in today’s biggest ship.
