A Size Comparison Between the Titanic and a Modern Cruise Ship

When most people think of the Titanic, they think of a massive cruise ship. But, while it was the world’s largest passenger liner at the time in 1912, the famous ship was actually significantly smaller than the cruise ships we know today.

A size comparison between the Titanic and a modern cruise ship.

The Titanic was 10 decks high, 269m (883ft) long and 28m (92ft) beam, which is the widest part of the vessel. Meanwhile the current largest cruise liner in the world, Royal Caribbean’s Icon of the Seas, which is due to make its maiden voyage in 2024, is 20 decks high, 365m (1198ft) long and 65m (213ft) beam.

The Titanic size comparison to the Icon of the Seas, which will be the world’s largest cruise ship when it makes its maiden voyage next year.

Since the discovery of the wreckage in 1985, extensive efforts have been made to investigate the Titanic, yet images have been poor until now.

It is resting at a depth of 3800m in the Atlantic Ocean and broken into two sections, with the bow and stern separated by approximately 800m, enveloped by an extensive debris field.
