Default Big Ship Float Out

I'm always impressed by huge ships. I'll be sailing on the Escape in February

Holy mother that's a big boat.

Was it really maneuvering around in that basin by itself? I saw the tugs but none of them looked roped up. There for backup mainly?

Whew.

Wonder how that compares in size to the titanic? Obviously bigger than.

Capacity/crew ratio is interesting. Is the capacity Pax only or does the capacity include crew and pax?

The ships total is about 6K

And yes their is a heck of a lot of crew onboard. Don't forget about 50% of the crew most people never see. I've taken two behind the scenes tours one on the Gem the other on the Breakaway. Very cool to see what goes on below the decks.

The Royal Caribbean Allure Of The Seas has a capacity if 6200 pax and 2300 crew
