Are bigger cruise ships safe?

Take this comment from the head of “Royal Caribbean Cruises” who has dismissed fears that massive size of the latest ships are not as safe, saying the newer, bigger ships “are safer”.

This was in response to concerns following the disaster aboard the Costa Concordia in January in which 32 passengers died. Seven bodies have yet to be recovered from the ship, owned by a subsidiary of Carnival Corporation.

The Concordia was carrying more than 4,000 passengers and crew, and the size and design of the ship were raised as concerns following the disaster, including by maritime trade union Nautilus.

However, the latest cruise ships are bigger but in our opinion not necessarily safer. Royal Caribbean Cruises’ ships Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas each carry 5,400 passengers and 2,400 crew.
