Four city blocks long and as tall as the Statue of Liberty, at $800 million, she is the most expensive and ambitious passenger vessel of all time. Her public rooms include a planetarium, ballroom, theatre, cinema, Canyon Ranch Spa, and 10 restaurants. Twenty-six hundred passengers are accomodated in a splendid variety of cabins, three quarters of them with balconies overlooking the sea. This book features stunning four-color photographs and paintings, details of design, construction, engines, lavish interiors, sea trials, and christening.
