With the dawn of mega-ships like Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas and the recent increase in river cruise popularity, we started to wonder how ship size affects the types of cruises people take.
In keeping with that theme, we decided to poll our readers for their thoughts about big ships.
What we asked: To me, big ships ___.
What they said: A whopping 59 percent said they carry too many passengers. Another 33 percent said big ships are the most fun. A further 5 percent think they offer the best itineraries, and the remaining 2 percent find them to be intimidating.
What it all means: Ok, so maybe passengers are searching for more intimate experiences after all. Based on the distribution of responses, it seems maybe mid-size ships (or even big ships that just aren’t quite as large as the Oasis-class duo) are the best bet for great itineraries and fewer passengers.
