It’s destined to be the world’s largest cruise ship when launched next year, Royal Caribbean’s US$1.24 billion Project Genesis will be 1,180 feet long, and carry 5400 passengers.

One key of attraction is a lush, tropical park in the center of the ship which opens to the sky. Central parks which are size of a football field are also developed on the ship with an intention of giving the travelers a public gathering place.
The aim is to make the park a public gathering place like a town’s central park, with pathways, seasonal flower gardensand a canopy of trees. Aiming to give the ship a number of distinct districts, the Central park neighborhood is one of seven neighborhoods to be unveiled on Project Genesis.

Central Park’s central piazza will be the ship’s “town square” which will evolve from a tranquil and peaceful atmosphere during the day to a gathering space for alfresco dining and entertainment in the evening, where guests will enjoy concerts and street performances. The neighborhood is lined with balcony staterooms rising six decks high with views of the Park below and the sky above.

Project Genesis is not only the most expensive ship in history buy also the longest the widest and the tallest ocean liner ever built (43 per cent larger in size than the world’s largest cruise ship, Freedom of the Seas) and even bigger than any military ship ever built, aircraft carriers included.
