Royal Caribbean Becomes Largest Cruise Line In The World

With the launch of its latest cruise ship, Harmony of the Seas, Royal Caribbean International has become the largest cruise line in the world.

A title claimed by Carnival Cruise Line for some years, both cruise lines now have 25 ships in their fleet.

Since Carnival’s last newbuild, Carnival Breeze, in 2012, Carnival has only constructed one new ship, the recently launched 133,500 GT Carnival Vista. Royal Caribbean has welcomed four new builds in that time as well as bringing back the former Empress of the Seas, but it has said goodbye to Monarch of the Seas and Splendour of the Seas.

As of this month, Royal Caribbean’s capacity is now 77,950 compared to Carnival’s capacity of 66,320.

Royal Caribbean operates nine of the eleven largest cruise ships in the world.
