The covid protocols are progressively getting more relaxed. Passengers are getting over their fear of cruises that had crept in during times of pandemic, and cruise lines are gearing up for their massive resurgence.

Two big cruise vessels entered service months after being handed over from their respective shipyards. Royal Caribbean’s WONDER OF THE SEAS is a true architectural marvel and is a sight to behold.

The largest cruise ship ever built, its construction took two years at the shipyard in Saint Nazaire, France, and cost more than $1.3 billion. Its final outfitting was carried out in Marseilles for two additional months. The ship can carry a maximum of 6,988 passengers and 2,300 crew members.

The ship has 19 swimming pools, 11 bars, 20 restaurants, 18 decks, a casino, an ice rink, and a Central Park.

The vessel set out on its 7-day maiden voyage to the Caribbean on 4th March from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Carnival Cruises’ Italian subsidiary Costa Cruises has also launched its second LNG-based cruise ship, the COSTA TOSCANA.

It started its 7-day maiden voyage from Savona towards Marseilles on 5th March.

The COSTA TOSCANA is the largest cruise ship registered in Italy and the 6th largest cruise ship run on LNG.

It was built by Meyer Turku in Finland and was delivered to Costa Cruises in December 2021. The vessel has room to accommodate 6730 passengers and 1640 crew.

All the major players in the cruise industry are planning to return to pre-pandemic levels of business and expecting a positive balance sheet for the first time in more than two years of languishing under the influence of the pandemic.
