Royal Caribbean Ships by Size [2023] with Comparison Chart

Royal Caribbean Ships by Size [2023] with Infographic

Below you'll find a complete list of Royal Caribbean Ships by Size. If it has an "of the Seas" in its name, then it's included in our ship sizes comparison chart. From the oldest Grandeur of the Seas to the newest planned, Utopia of the Seas (scheduled for 2024), you'll find the smallest to the largest Royal Caribbean ships here.

To give you an idea of just how far we've come, check out the bottom of the size comparison chart. Royal Caribbean's earliest ships held less than 3,000 people including guests and cruise staff. Compare that to the top where you'll see the planned Icon of the Seas with nearly 10,000 people roaming this massive ship. That's over 3x the size!

First, we have to get something clear. We're measuring Royal Caribbean ships by size according to the metric, "Gross Tonnage." This always causes a bit of confusion amongst our community members. It's not simply "weight" that determines this size measurement. The definition is technical and boring, but we'll provide it anyway.

Gross TonnageA nonlinear measure of a ship's overall internal volume. Gross tonnage is calculated based on the moulded volume of all enclosed spaces of the ship and is used to determine things such as a ship's manning regulations, safety rules, registration fees, and port dues, whereas the older gross register tonnage is a measure of the volume of only certain enclosed spaces.

We told you it was boring! So why do we use this measurement to determine Royal Caribbean Ships Sizes? As noted above, it's used for safety rules and whatnot. As such, it's prevalent. Every passenger cruise ship will have this metric. That makes it easy to compare ship size across ship, class, line and more. Speaking of "class," we also have a great post on Royal Caribbean Ships by Class. There you can find all of the fun features (like robot bartenders and surfing machines) that are included based on RC's ship classes.

 
 

Ok, we're done with today's maritime measurement course. Here's our Royal Caribbean Ships Sizes Chart. And below, you'll find all ships sizes with more details!

Royal Caribbean Ships Sizes (Largest to Smallest)

Click above to pin this Royal Caribbean Ships by Size Infograph to your favorite cruise planning board, so you can refer back to it when choosing your next ship!

That's every Royal Caribbean Cruise Ship currently active in their fleet. We've also included RCCL's future ships, the Icon and Utopia of the Seas.

You can see the vast difference in ships sizes below comparing the smallest to largest! Here's a visual representation showing the Empress of the Seas to the Symphony of the Seas.

The experience on these two cruise ships will be drastically different!  It's like shopping at the corner store vs the "Mall of America." Different cruisers have varying preferences. Some of you prefer familiarity and intimacy. Others want novelty and don't mind walking long distances. There are no bad options here!

RC builds its ships in "classes." These are like small families containing similar ships in each group. If you find a specific type of ship that you like, consider the other ships in its family. Check out our post, Royal Caribbean Ships by Class. Now... back to sizing.

Not only is the Icon of the Seas the biggest of Royal Caribbean's fleet. It will also be the largest cruise ship in the world!

 
Does Royal Caribbean Ship Size impact cruise price?

Often we're asked if size affects price. The cost of a Royal Caribbean cruise isn't directly correlated with size. You won't find that the bigger the ship, the more the cost. Nor will you find the opposite. You won't necessarily pay less for the largest RC ship vs the smallest. It will all depend on the specific itinerary. To get a sense of pricing, please use our widget below.

 

Now on to sizing. To find your specific RC ship, feel free to use our menu below. Clicking on any will let you quickly jump to that ship's stats.
