Just kidding….it’s a bit more than a dingy. Here are the numbers:
When Sun Princess was launched in 1995 she was the world’s biggest cruise liner and set new standards in passenger ship design
Sun Princess was the biggest cruise liner ever to sail under the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Stretching 49.4m above the waterline – the equivalent of a 20-storey building – she was clearing the bridge’s road deck with just 4m to spare
Weighing a huge 77,000 tons, Sun Princess is equivalent in tonnage to 68 Manly ferries, 200 Qantas jumbos and 706 blue whales – the world’s biggest animal
Sun Princess is 1.7 times the size of the legendary Titanic (46,000 tons) and bigger than Cunard’s famous QE2 (70,300 tons)
If tipped on her stern, the 261m long Sun Princess would stretch 11m higher than the observation deck of Sydney Tower, the city’s tallest building.
The ship offers more ‘must-have’ balcony cabins (410) – than any other ship ever tailored for Australians. The abundance of balcony cabins makes them more affordable then before.
With 975 staterooms, Sun Princess boasts more accommodation rooms than Australia’s largest hotel, Sydney’s 630-room Four Points by Sheraton in Darling Harbour.
Every seven days, Sun Princess passengers consume 10,000 bottles of wine and champagne, 10,000 cans of soft drink and 2400 bottles of water
Her 2900 passengers and crew is the equivalent of eight fully-laden jumbo jets.
More than 1100 passengers can enjoy dinner at the same time pheeeeeew
