$1.24 Billion for a boat?

Royal Caribbean is have a behemoth built. At 220,000 gross registered tons and a larger displacement than a Nimitz carrier it will be capable of handling 6,400 passengers.
Both will be eclipsed by Project Genesis, which will be 1,180 feet long, 154 feet wide at water level and 240 feet high.

This ship is just going to be extremely overcrowded with 6400 passengers. The ship is not even 70 feet longer then the freedom of the seas but its going to hold over 2000 passengers more?!?!? Cruises in general have been on the rise in the past 10 years and RCCL has benefitted most. Yes their previous ships have been somewhat crowded but accepted. This ship however will just put a label on RCCL for packing its ships to the brim with passengers so much that it is umcomfortable.
