Three years after Royal Caribbean announced Project Genesis the cruise line has finally let the cat out of the bag regarding what’s onboard. How will this monster ship entertain some 5,400 passengers? In grand style.
At the heart of the Genesis ship is an outdoor park that will contain tropical flower gardens and would you believe an on-site horticulturist that will provide educational classes for guests seeking to learn more about flora. There will be walkways and lined with boutiques, bars, restaurants for dining alfresco, and five decks of cabins (four with balconies) overlooking the gardens. There will even be a moving bar, called Rising Tide, that ascends and descends between Deck 5 and Deck 8 where the park will be.
When the ship launches in late 2009, Project Genesis will be the largest and most revolutionary cruise ship in the world. An architectural marvel at sea, she will span 16 decks, encompass 220,000 GRT, carry 5,400 guests, and feature 2,700 staterooms. The ship will sail from her home port in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. In 2010, she will be joined by a sister ship.
