HELSINKI (Oct. 30) -- The world's largest cruise liner on Friday began its maiden voyage to Florida, gliding out from a shipyard in Finland with an amphitheater, basketball courts and an ice rink on board.

The 16-deck Oasis of the Seas spans 1,200 feet from bow to stern. Its 2,700 cabins can accommodate 6,300 passengers and 2,100 crew.

I have sailed on Adventure of the Seas which is "only" 3500 passengers. In my view even that was simply too big. I love cruising but have no desire to try Oasis.

That ship carries more passengers than live in my town. It makes me think of floating condos.
