However, don’t expect the ship to be available for booking anytime soon. Build time could be anything from 5 to 10 years. Chances of this monster ship being built and finished anytime soon are a long way off as the potential safety standards will be so extreme as the ship will have entirely new rules to follow as the maritime industry will put such scrutiny on a monstrosity of this size. Not to mention local authority requirements of a port or city that it might come in contact with.

Are we ready for a ship of this size?
