Ships have been around for thousands of years, but in the 1800s they started getting REALLY big.
Do you know what they're called?
Big, really big SHIPS are called...
You guessed it right!
Cruise ships are considered the largest type of ship in the world.
These ships had lots of space for passengers and cargo, making them ideal for travel to distant parts of the world.
Cruise ships have been around for more than 200 years.
The first cruise ship was launched in 1819 and has come a long way since then.
Ships went from one or two masted vessels to three-masted schooners, which became luxury cruise ships.
A cruise ship is a self-contained city. You'll have your favourite amenities at hand —bars, restaurants, shops, pools and play areas.
This type of ship is like a huge floating resort. It's got everything you need right on board so you can chill out as much as you want.
Cruise ships are usually owned by companies that offer trips to people who want to travel together and visit different places around the world.
Cruise ships are one of the fastest-growing modes of transportation in the world. In fact, they're growing so rapidly that it's hard to keep up with how fast they're expanding.
Cruise ship capacity is expected to increase by one-third between 2020 and 2025.
So, why are cruise ships growing at such an incredible rate?
Cruises are growing because they combine relaxation, entertainment, and travel— everything anyone could want on a vacation.
As long as people keep loving these experiences, cruises will continue to grow in popularity!
There are two types of cruising, one is open-loop and the other is closed-loop.
Cruises that start and end in different oceans, seas, or ports are known as open-loop cruises, and closed-loop cruises begin and end at the same port.
