Top 10 Biggest Cruise Ships By 2025

From a $1.4 billion-dollar mega ship to a brand-new, just announced 9,000 passenger vessel to Royal Caribbean’s newest class of ships and from roller coasters to facial recognition to massive water parks, this list is certain to stun you! Today, we will be looking at the 10 biggest cruise ship classes that will sail the world by 2025.

 

So, let’s get straight into today’s incredible megaships!

10. Norwegian Cruise Line’s Breakaway-Plus

We have Norwegian Cruise Line’s Breakaway-Plus class of ships. It includes the company’s latest ship, the $1Billion Norwegian Encore which is nearly 1,100 feet long and 20 decks high.

 

It features the longest go-cart race track at sea that hangs over the side of the ship and is two floors high. You can hit speeds of up to 32 miles per hour while enjoying the stunning ocean views around.

 

If that’s not exhilarating enough for you, try out the first open-air laser tag park at sea or the stunning onboard Aqua Park regardless of what you want to do, the Breakaway-plus class will have something for you.

9. Royal Caribbean's Quantum Class

Next is the Royal Caribbean’s Quantum Class ships – the “most technologically advanced cruise ships in the world”. The ships feature industry-first experiences such as the NorthStar, an observation capsule that lifts you 300 feet above sea level, giving you stunning views of the ship, Two70, an aft lounge that fully transforms at night with robotic screens and incredible entertainment, IFly, a SkyDiving simulator you can try out for free and just so much more.

 

At 1,141 feet and 169,000 GT, the Quantum Class is filled with unique amenities certain to make your cruise memorable. But it isn’t even Royal Caribbean’s largest class of ships. The company has two other larger ship classes, including a brand new one launching very soon.

8. MSC's Seaside EVO Class

The 8th largest cruise ship class we have is MSC’s Seaside EVO Class – another stunning set of vessels with up to 170,400GT and 5646 passengers.

 

It builds on the success of the Seaside Class, which focused heavily on bringing cruisers closer to the ocean with many outdoor spaces! This includes an aft waterfront promenade with pools, lounges and restaurants with direct sea views.

 

On the top floor, you can also discover 5 waterslides or Ziplines to finish off an adventure-filled day at sea.

7. & 6. MSC Meraviglia and Meraviglia Plus Classes

Unlike the Seaside fleet that are built for the warm Caribbean sun, the Meraviglia ships are designed for colder regions, like Northern Europe or Alaska. It features a stunning indoor promenade with massive ceiling LED displays used to enhance the atmosphere or to liven up dance parties.

 

For more exhilarating activities, check out the indoor SportsPlex, bowling alleys, a flight simulator, an Interactive Cinema and VR maze or even an F1 racing emulator. One thing is sure, you will not be bored onboard.

 

The ship is also packed with several indoor pools and solariums, but also some outdoor lido-deck swimming areas for when the weather turns out to be just right.

5. Carnival’s Excellence Class

In number 5, we have the Excellence Class, a set of ships shared by Carnival subsidiaries including AIDA Cruises, Costa Cruises, P&O, and Carnival itself.

 

Most prominently, Carnival’s newest ship, the Mardi Gras, is also part of the Excellence class. At $1.38 Billion, these are some of the most expensive cruise ships ever built and the features onboard the 185,000GT vessels do not disappoint.

 

The Mardi Gras for instance features the Ultimate Playground zone on the lido deck filled with fun family activities, including Bolt – the first Roller Coaster at Sea, reaching speeds of up to 35 mph. But it also, the regular fun stuff: like a ropes course, a 9-hole mini-golf course and an aquapark with waterslides.

 

If you want to take it easy, relax in the quiet aft pool area or enjoy one of the 22 different dining venues onboard.

 

The Excellence class is a huge step up for Carnival and all its subsidiaries, helping it compete with the other mega ships still left in this list. Out of the four remaining cruise ship classes, we have three exciting brand-new ones that haven’t even set sail yet.

4. Royal Caribbean's Icon Class

Among them, in number 4, we have one of the most anticipated cruise ship classes to date: Royal Caribbean’s Icon Class. Much remains unknown about the 200,000GT mega ships which will start launching in 2023, as Royal Caribbean is still waiting to announce the ship design.

 

But given that the previous two classes, the Oasis Class and the Quantum Class were both innovative masterpieces, we can’t wait to see what the Icon Class will offer.

3. MSC's World Class

Next up, the world’s third largest cruise ship fleet, MSC’s World Class. The MSC World Europa, setting sail in 2022, will be the first vessel in this class of ships, coming in at a stunning 205,700GT and a maximum passenger capacity of 6,850.

 

Just like the previous two classes, the MSC World Europa will also run on Liquified Natural Gas – one of the cleanest fossil fuels. It will decrease sulfur dioxide emissions by over 99% percent and lead to an overall cleaner cruising vacation.

2. Dream Cruises' Global Class

Number two is the we have Dream Cruises’ Global Class. The 208,000GT large mega ships are specially designed for the Chinese market and will have a maximum passenger capacity of 9,000 – over 30% more than the current record.

 

And let’s be honest, even for a ship this size, this might be a little bit crowded. Ignoring the passenger capacity however, the ship does offer some cool features. For one, you can unlock your cabins with your smartphone and use facial recognition to pay onboard.

 

The top deck is filled with fun activities for children, including several waterslides and a theme park with the world’s longest roller coaster at sea. With many industry-first amenities, it will be interesting to see how this ship will actually turn out once completed.

1. Royal Caribbean’s Oasis Class

And now, in number one, the largest cruise ship class since its debut in 2009 and unlikely to be beaten anytime soon, the Royal Caribbean’s Oasis Class ships! Costing $1.4Billion and at up to 237,000GT, they are certain to stun you! 

 

The ships feature 7 distinct neighborhoods with different vibes and amenities, including Central Park, an open-air promenade in the middle of the ship with real plants, the Boardwalk with its traditional carousel, Aqua Theater, with stunning diving shows, the Pool and Sports Zone, with several slides, an 18-hole mini-golf course, surfing simulators, a zipline, a dry slide connecting the top lido deck with the boardwalk below and just so much more!

 

The Oasis Class’s unique neighborhood system, its 40 dining options and its many incredible features, don’t just make it the largest, most expensive cruise ship class in the world. It is also one of the most popular ones amongst regular cruises.
