What does it mean???


Recommended Posts

It's when an older ship is made longer by actually inserting a series of modules in the middle, adding additional space on every single deck. This is done to accommodate more passengers and to add more public spaces (restaurants, lounges, etc.). It's cheaper to do this than to build a new ship from scratch, so it's a practical way of extending the economic viability of an old ship.

They actually cut the ship in two and add in a new section to expand the ship. Quite a few ships have been stretched including Norweigan's Majesty,Wind and Dream and also RCCL's Enchantment of the sea. At a cost of between $55 to $60 million it's a steal compared to the cost of the new Freedom of the Seas which was $800 million.:eek:
