Smallest to Largest: Royal Caribbean’s 26 Cruise Ships Organized By Size

In this piece, we’ll take a look at Royal Caribbean ships by size. When it comes to the size of its ocean ship fleet, Royal Caribbean has the most of any cruise line. The cruise line was founded in 1968 and has become a household name as far as cruise brands are concerned.

Royal Caribbean’s ships range from 73,817 to 236,857 gross tons, so there’s pretty much a size for everyone. In fact, that top number is Wonder of the Seas, and she’s currently the largest cruise ship in the world. If your motto is ‘go big or go home,’ you can quite literally sail the biggest in the cruise industry with Royal Caribbean.
