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 wide.And 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.
