*** FREE webinar on Speaking on Cruise ships Thurs Dec 19 ***
Currently, the biggest ships in the world are under the Royal Caribbean banner – the Allure of the Seas and the Oasis of the Seas, Oasis has almost 7,000 passengers, 2,394 Crew, 7 neighborhoods and 25 dining options. Huge, right? That is bigger than most towns in Iowa!!
Well, get ready. How about a ship that is a mile long. That is no typo… ONE mile long.
Plans for the floating platform were recently released. It would hold 100,000 people, with half being permanent residents. Of course, it will have a mall, schools, cinemas, etc. The ship would circle the earth every two years. It will be in ports 70% of the time and at sea the remainder.
So where did this crazy idea come from? A rich guy named Norman Nixon. After the 2008 financial crisis hit, he gave up. He’s dead now, but his former business partners are looking at doing it. So much for going through the Panama Canal. The locks are 1,000 feet long now; going to 1,800 in 2015. We shall see.
But just think, if you were giving talks, you could live there!!
