The much coveted small ship in the circles of veteran ship travelers, Grand Princess was launched in 1998 as a mega liner that perceives itself as a mini liner. Designed and furnished with train of luxuries, the ship sports vast hallways and gaping theatre that contradict its general reputation of a small ship.

In support of its launch idea, the company has smaller restaurants, bars and lounges than an average full size ship. However, the ship offers a lot of activity, recreation and abundant in dining options. It is hardly realized by the travelers that they are on board with another two thousand six hundred passengers! It is thanks to varied options in each service that make it possible for everyone to enjoy an intimate time minus too much of hustle and bustle. For instance, you can dine at three dining rooms with choices between flexible timings and traditional routine. You have three swimming pools, 9 whirlpools and one evergreen Calypso pool, to have fun to your best capacity. Luxurious Lotus spa, 700 plus balcony cabins, three show lounges and centers for kids & teens render this ship ideal getaway for families. However, if you are not too keen for a traditional experience, it is a good trip idea for couples and newly weds as well.

MS Berge Stahl

Does curiosity ever grip you as in which of the bulk carrier vessels is the largest, ever to sail the oceans across the globe? The name of the biggest bulk carrier in the world is MS Berge Stahl. It’s a popular ship that is a part of Bergesen dy ASA fleet.

Originally registered with Monrovia of Liberia, the bulk carrier sports the flag of Norway’s Stavanger at present. The vessel is designed to carry iron in large quantities. 343 meters long, 65 meters wide and 23 meters by draft, the huge ship is a make of the year 1986 from the Hyundai Heavy Industries shipyard. As expected out of any colossal vessel, the bulk carrier is powered by 27,610 horse power (2.59 Mega Watt) Hyundai B&W engine. Dead weight of the vessel is 364,767 metric tonnes.

Indeed, a common point of keen interest for anyone with any idea of mechanics of a ship would be how much speed this ship can achieve from so much of horsepower? Records sing its speed at its best to be 13.5 knots. One thing even more interesting about it; the bulk ship has a rudder about 9 meters high. This means that its rudder is equal to the height and width of its main engine – 9 by 9 meters.

Disney Cruise Line
One of the most popular cruise lines is the Disney Cruise Line. Starting in the 1980’s, Disney began organising cruise vacations with an arrangement with Premier Cruise Line targeted at families and featuring costumed Disney characters. In 1995, Disney commissioned its own cruise ships at Fincantieri in Italy creating the present entity.

Operations began in 1998 with the Disney Magic, which was later augmented by the Disney Wonder in 1999. Both ships comprise of 300 rooms each with dedicated areas for various age groups like children, teenagers and adults. The ships are the first in the cruise industry to be designed and built from the keel up as family cruise line, with the goal of accommodating parents and children. Unlike other cruise ships, Disney’s does not include casinos.

The ships set sail from Port Canaveral in Florida to the scenic Bahamas and the photogenic Caribbean Islands. In addition to the two ships, Disney also owns and operates a private island in the Caribbean called Castaway Cay, which is used as a port of call for Disney’s ships. In 2007, Disney announced the launch of two new ships, the Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy. These will set sail in 2011 and 2012 respectively.
