    Royal Caribbean’s latest cruise ships. Are the evacuation rafts practical in a real emergency?

    In order to cram enough people into lifeboats, Royal Caribbean obtained a waiver to increase the maximum lifeboat capacity up to 370 people. These are enough for 6,660 people. However Oasis has a total maximum population of around 8,500 which means 1,850 people (in theory the crew) make do with...

    Liners and Cruise Ships Worth Preserving

    Out of all the cruise ships and liners currently in service today, which ones do you think would be worth preserving as hotel and museum ships once retired. To me, those include Queen Mary 2, MV Stockholm/Athena, Marco Polo, Funchal, Disney Cruise Line ships, Oriana (1995), and Aurora (2000).

    Were the lights on board the Titanic less bright than the lights on today's cruise ships?

    I would think so. Technology has changed so much in the past century. On another note, James Cameron found out when he was making the movie replica that the Grand Staircase was small by today's standards. The average human body has gotten bigger since 1912.
