World's Largest Cruise Ship

Only one Solstice-class cruise ships will be produced, and the first five (aptly named Solstice) has left port for the sea. Weighing approximately 134,000 tons, the Solstice is over 1,000 feet long and can hold 4,350 people (or about 3,000 paying customers). It's also among the first boats of its kind to have a grass area on the roof. For those who like to cruise around the world at 28mph with no means of escaping crying infants or death-by-buffet, the Solstice will host its first passengers next month. Here are more giant shots of the aquatic beast.
