This is a difficult question, as cruise ships have different top speeds, and what route would the ship take? Can it fit through the Panama Canal? Are you asking about the length of a World Cruise which includes stops at many ports, or simply how long would it take a ship to travel from New York, go …around the world, and get back to New York?. World Cruises are typically in the neighborhood of 80 - 110 days or even longer, depending on if it truly starts and stops at the same port, and the number and length of port calls. Some World cruises start on the West Coast of the U.S. and end on the East Coast. Others start in New York and end in Southampton. Others do go round-trip from a particular port.. Ask a travel agent that specializes in cruise what the current World Cruise itineraries are to get a better idea. ( Full Answer )
The USS Monitor was the first Union submarine (it was, in reality, only semi-submersible). The USS Merrimac(k) was salvaged by the Confederate Navy and plated with iron (iron clad) and commissioned as the CSS Virginia. The Monitor and the Virginia went at it in the Battle of Hampton Roads. This …went down in history as the first battle between two ironclads. ( Full Answer )
Let's assume that the cruise ships speed is about 20 knots per hour - this translates into about 23 MPH. Figuring that the world is ~25,000 miles in circumference at the equator, it would take 1,086 hours or 45 days to make that sailing voyage. Of course, this is assuming that no ports of call ar…e stopped at - just pure full time sailing in open water. If the ship must use the Panama Canal, one has to add sufficient time to the total to transverse that area, too. ( Full Answer )

I believe what you are looking for is the well known CSS Virginia (better known as the Merrimac). Another well known confederate vessel was the CSS Hunley, the first submarine to sink an enemy ship.
Armored revolving turret. The USN's last monitors were used in the Vietnam War; they had either 40mm or 105mm cannons mounted in armored revolving turrets.
Ship building has become more computerized and safer since back in the days. Modular style building has largely replaced rib style building previously used in old ship yards. It provides easier construction and more measure of control over the build of the ships than before along with giving the wor…kers more safety. ( Full Answer )
They really developed the Iron Clads, the forerunners of the modern ships with armored sides. Submarines were also experimented with, the Confederates having a submarine that successfully attacked a Union ship, but then sank with all hands.
The CSS Virginia, captured from the Union as the USS Merrimac, renamed and rebuilt as an ironclad. The ship continued to be known unofficially as the Merrimac, probably because "the Monitor and the Merrimac" had a nicer ring to it.
They were called ironclads because instead of being made entirely of wood, they had metal sheeting over the top of the ships. The Monitor looked more like a submarine than a ship.. The "deck" was barely above the water and it had a round turret that could swivel and fire a cannon. The other ship was… named The Merrimac and looked as if a regular wooden ship had a metal tent across the decks. It also had cannons. Both ships saw action in the American War Between the States. They fought each other in March of 1862 and neither ship won. But since the Union Monitor prevented the CSA's Merrimac from running the Union blockade of Hampton Roads, Virginia, the Monitor is considered the winning side.. The Merrimac was not intended to run the Union blocade, but to ruin the Union blockade by destroying the Union warships so the blocade runners could travel to the CSA from Europe unopposed. The Union had five warships at Hampton Roads, and the Merrimac destroyed two of them before the Monitor arrived to defend the third ship. As another difference, the French and British navies each had an ironclad before the war began, but they had sails in addition to steam power. The Monitor and Merrimac were the first major warships powered by steam only. The US Navy specified sails for the Monitor, but John Ericsson ignored the specification. ( Full Answer )
Two months after the CSS Virginia battled the Union Monitor, the Confederates destroyed the Virginia as they retreated from Norfolk, Virginia

What was the outcome of the battle at sea between the union ship monitor and the confederate ship virgina?
That was the Battle of Hampton Roads. The battle is considered indescive because both sides claimed thay won and there is no easy way to determine who could be considered the victor looking back on it.
Ferdinand Magellan's ships were the first to go around the world.This was called a circumnavigation and took place in about 1520.
As different people from the world travel, they bring different ideas and culture to other regions.
There was a fleet of Union ironclads built that fought all along the coast of the Southern States as well as up the Mississippi River and the tributaries. The names were varied, but iron clad was the standard reference.

The USS Merrimac had been s ship of the US (Union) Navy. She was in drydock at the Navy base at Norfolk, Virginia when the Rebels were about to capture the Navy Yard, so the withdrawing Union sailors set her on fire, and she burned down to the waterline. The Rebels took what was left of her and buil…t their ironclad on top of the remains, which was the bottom of the ship and its engines. This new vessel looked nothing like the old Merrimac and was renamed the CSS Virginia. So the battle of the ironclads was really the Monitor versus the Virginia. But it sounds so much cooler to be alliterative so the newspaper headlines were "Monitor vs. Merrimac", which had the additional virtue of not recognizing anything the southern government did, such as renaming the remnants of Union ships whose wreckage passed into their hands, on top of which they had built a completely different type of ship.

Because her shape, like a "cheese box on a raft", offered but little target to the adversary artillery, until she would have been engaged at a very close range.
By blockading Southern ports in adherence to the Anaconda Plan, the North deprived the South of its ability to export cotton, and other surplus crops, overseas, or to import much needed arms and ammunition. It eventually led to the slow starvation and strangulation of the South by denying the enemy …the means by which it could wage war. In conjunction with the campaigns in the Western Theater, particularly the capture of the Mississippi Valley river ports, the blockade did more than any other single tactic to end the war.

The first one we have a record of was a Spanish expedition of five ships and a crew of about 270 led by Portuguese navigator Ferdinand Magellan, who was silly enough to meddle in local politics in the Philippines and was killed. Four of the ships were lost, and one the Vittoria made it back t…o Spain. Its master Juan El Cano and 17 crewmen of the original 43-man crew of the ship survived to return. ( Full Answer )
The USS Monitor was an advance in ironclad warships in its time. It had a rotating turret on which a canon was mounted. It was part of the US Civil War sea battle at Hampton Roads. It fought against the CSS Virginia. This was the first battle between ironclad warships in history. The battle was a st…and-off. The Moniter never fought again as it was lost in a sea storm some months later. ( Full Answer )
The USS Monitor was an important part of the US Navy during the US Civil War. The first monitor was built in New York City shipyards using the model & design of John Ericsson. This ironclad was sent to Hampton Roads in order to support the Union ships helping in the Peninsula campaign. The warship… was of unique design, (advanced in several ways )as it had but one canon mounted on a revolving turret. The ironclad Confederate CSS Virginia, had all but destroyed, several Union ships, causing near panic in Washington DC. The Monitor's mission was to confront the Southern warship before it did more damage. The battle between the CSS Virginia & the USS Monitor was a historical one. No other ironclads had ever fought each other. The battle resulted in a draw. Soon after the Southern forces had to scuttle the Virginia and the Monitor later sunk in a hurricane. Thus these two ships never fought each other again. The Monitor left a legacy however, as more were built and helped the Union navy in its Southern blockade campaign. Several monitors were used in the assault on Southern sea fortress, Fisher. ( Full Answer )
The Union's advantage in ship building was the locations of theirshipyards. Seven of the nine naval yards were in the North andlocated far from harm's way during the war, with a small exceptionto be mentioned later. The naval yards were in New York, Boston,Philadelphia, Washington, Portsmouth, New H…ampshire, Sackett'sHarbor, Main and Mare Island, California. The previous note on the exception was a fear that occurred earlyin the War. That was when the naval battle at Hampton Roads,brought forth the CSA Merrimack ironclad which destroyed two of theUnion's finest warships. Panic came about in Washington DC, wherethere was the fear that the Merrimack might sail into the York Cityharbor and create havoc. This was quieted when the USS Monitorconfronted the CSA Merrimack. Soon both ironclads were out ofservice. ( Full Answer )
