Have you ever wondered how fast a cruise ship is sailing? Depending on your vantage point, it could feel like you are sailing at a very fast speed onboard a cruise ship. Other times, watching a massive cruise ship sail away from port might seem like the ship is moving at a snail’s pace.
Most ships sail at a comfortable cruising speed for the majority of one sailing. The speed of your cruise ship varies greatly depending on the ship’s size and engine power. The cruising speed is often considering the ship's fuel consumption as well.
