Gilded Age: Royal Caribbean's Oasis ship will be largest ever


How’s this for unnecessary [faux] luxury: Royal Caribbean’s “Oasis of the Seas” will be the largest ship to every float on water, coming in at 1,180 feet long and weighing a cool 220,000 tons. All that, just to parade around 5,400 n’er-do-wells.

And while you’re struggling to make sense out of your everyday expenses, know that Royal Caribbean spent $1.24 billion making the ship.

Other gems include an onboard tattoo parlor and psychic, and a football field-sized park located in the middle of the ship called, appropriately enough, Central Park.
