Ships That Pass in the Night

We just happened to be looking out our balcony window Friday evening as this behemoth floated by.

When the MSC Grandiosa came into service in November 2019, she was the second largest cruise ship in the world  by tonnage.

She is 1,087 feet long, holds 4,842 passengers at double occupancy (6,334 maximum occupancy), and 1,704 crew members.

Marina, in contrast, is 783 feet long, holds 1,250 passengers double occupancy, and 780 crew members.

Oh, and the Titanic? She was just under 883 feet long, held 2,435 passengers, and 892 crew members.
