13 Actual Facts About The Titanic You Probably Didn’t Know

13. The Titanic Was a Lot Smaller Than Most Modern Cruise Ships

Royal Caribbean International is known for having the largest ship in the world, and it is called The Allure of the Seas. The Allure was built in 2008, but was not launched until November, 2009. The size difference between the current biggest boat on the planet and the Titanic is massive. The Allure can hold up to almost 6300 people, while the Titanic was only able to hold 2,435 at the time of its launch. Almost all of the features of the Allure are around twice as big as the Titanic, including the length, the weight, and even the crew amount on board is almost threefold of the ship that was sunk nearly a decade ago. Even though the Titanic was a lot smaller than most ships today, it was still quite hefty; it was 882 feet long.
