Hi Titanica

Today most ships of the cargo type are indeed larger than Titanic. But I will assume you mean passenger ship.

Caribbean international cruises used to hold the largest ships of a passenger service, These where "The Voyager of the Seas" and "Explorer of the Seas" These two craft where and are 1,020 feet long 158 feet [sign in to see URL] at 140,000 tones they carry aprox 3000 passengers and 2000 crew members.

Now I am not at all sure without checking if the new QM2 is bigger will look unless someone can say before me.

Regards
Graham

Yes Graham, I meant Passenger ships. I am also aware that Military (Carriers) are very large indeed. Are these ships you mentioned still running?

Hi Titanica

I thought you meant passenger ships hence the reason I did not go into names of freighters, oil tankers and military etc.

In main answer yes I believe they are still cruising.

And Wills, Like we say will have to check but I am more than sure it is bigger. In fact most liners nowadays are indeed bigger than the Titanic.

Regards
Graham

Hi Titanica

just on a note here and I am sure you or others will know this, but the original Queen Mary was built for the White Star Line.

Graham

The QM2 is larger than Titanic.
When I went to see the QM2 in Southampton, I took a few pictures of her, which I will put on the web soon. emoticon

Hi Tom

Look forward to seeing them but I am not a lover of modern day boats myself, still they are a historic photo in themselves.

i agree graham,
i am not much of a fan for the modern ships.
i like the older sleeker model. they just seem to present the idea that the people took the time to build them.
these just look thrown together.
