Oasis of the Seas, largest passenger ship in the world, sails in December

All you other pipsqueak cruise ships get out of the way — here comes the monstrous Oasis of the Seas, the most gigantic passenger vessel in the world. The $1.2 billion superliner is 1,181 feet long, and is powered by eight v12 engines cranking out 17,500 hp each to its three 20-foot-tall propellers.

The 215-foot-tall behemoth has two six-story towers with a total of 2,700 staterooms for its 5,400 passengers, creating a courtyard between them that's the size of a football-field. Filled with 400 tons of plants and the soil to grow them, they're calling that huge green area Central Park.

Now all the Royal Caribbean International cruise line has to do is find enough people who still have any money left, so they can fill up this cruise ship when it sails for the Caribbean out of Port Canaveral, Florida on the first of December.
