Everything You’ve Ever Wondered About Cruises And The Cruise Industry Answered
Last week, Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas made its maiden voyage and you can tour the huge cruise ship HERE. This massive vessel is the largest and most expensive cruise ship in the world. This gargantuan cruise ship is 18 decks high and is 1,188-feet-long, which is about the length of the Empire State Building. The Symphony of the Seas weighs 228,081 tons and is approximately five times larger than the Titanic. The Symphony of the Seas cost $1.35 billion to construct, so how in the world does Royal Caribbean manage to make a profit on that enormous investment while charging less than $100 a day for an inside cabin and all-you-can-eat food buffets?
