The largest ship ever constructed was the Seawise Giant. Built by Sumitomo Heavy Industries in Japan in 1979, she rang in at a full displacement of over 646,000 long tons. At a length of 458 m, she is longest than the Empire State Building is tall. Her name has changed over the years. She has been k…nown as the Happy Giant, the Jahre Viking, The Knock Nevis, and most recently the Mont. The largest ship in the world, technically, is the Knock Nevis (also known as the Jahre Viking or Seawise Giant). However, this ship is now used an oil storage facility. This ship was too large to navigate the English Channel. The largest operational ship in the world is Emma Maersk (and her sister ships, which include Ebba Maersk and Estelle Maersk). It is a container ship owned by shipping industry giants A.P. Moller Maersk. It can hold well over 12,000 TEU's. This vessel is by far too large to transit the canals of Suez and Panama. It's regular rotation of ports includes Rotterdam, Xiamen and Singapore. Some of the other largest vessels in the world include the container ships Xin Los Angeles (China Shipping Line), MSC Pamela (Mediterrenean Shipping Company) and OOCL Shenzhen and OOCL Guangzhou. The titanic WAS the largest ship until it sank by hitting an iceberg The Knock Nevis , a bulk-oil tanker (formerly the Jahre Viking), is the world's largest ship ever to sail the seas at 1504 ft (458m) long and 226 ft wide. She was launched in 1979 as the Seawise Giant. The ship has a capacity of 4,240,865 barrels of oil, giving her a displacement of 825,614 GLW tonnes. She has an unladen weight of 564,763 tonnes. Her hold is big enough to fit St Paul's Cathedral inside 4 times over. She takes 5 miles to stop and has a turning circle of 2 miles. She has a crew of 35 -40 and her cargo is worth $122 million. In 1986, while sailing under the name Seawise Giant, she was attacked and sunk in shallow waters by Iraqi jets in the Straits of Hormuz. She was subsequently raised and repaired and resumed her life on the seas. The largest cruise ship in the world is the 220,000 tonne Oasis of the Seas , at 1187 ft long (the length of 4 football fields) and 240 ft high. She has 16 decks, a staff of 2,000 and can cater for 6,000 passengers. The ship costing an estimated Â£700 million ($1.2 billion), has 22 acres of carpeting, uses 2,300 tonnes of water for the on-board swimming pools and produces up to 50 tonnes of ice a day. The ship is equipped with a basketball court, mini-golf course, two surf simulators, climbing walls and a mall. It has a huge open-air space that was inspired by New York's Central Park, complete with plants and living trees An even larger ship is currently under construction called the Freedom . The ship, which is designed to be a floating city, will be a nearly a mile long (4,320 ft, 1.3 km), 25 stories high from the waterline and displace approximately 2.7 million tonnes. She will provide living space for 50,000 residents, employ 15,000 workers and have an airport on her top deck. Ok, well at the present the top ten biggest ships are these ones 1. Oasis of The Seas 2.Freedom of The Seas or Queen Mary 2 (Queen Mary longer, but freedom more weight) 3. Navigator of the Seas 4. Mariner of The Seas 5. Explorer of the Seas 6. Voyager of the Seas 7. Adventure of the Seas 8. Diamond Princess 9. Sapphire Princess 10. Costa Concordia In the past the biggest ships were the Titanic the Queen Mary and some other CUNARD company ships. I think overall Cunard and Voyager class ships are the most biggest and grandest. BUT Queen Mary 2 has and has always been the grandest and biggest OCEAN LINER (not cruise ship) in the world. Don't be mistaken by this chart that the diamond princess and sapphire princess are horrible because there not. I have gone on Freedom of the seas oasis of the seas and queen Mary 2, and wat i think is the best and grandest is probably the Queen Mary 2. Oasis and Freedom are good to but the service is also important and Queen Mary 2 wins hands down. The Jahre Viking is the largest tanker, and the Oasis of the Seas is the largest cruise ship The 160,000-ton Freedom Of the seas owned by Florida-based Royal Caribbean Cruises Limited is the tallest and largest CRUISE ship in the world. NO, actually Cunard's Queen Mary 2 is, you see Freedom Of The Seas Is Larger in Capacity, its Beam makes it larger but Queen Mary 2 Is the Tallest and Longest Righ Now, but on December First Oasis of the seas will take the Title. BUT NOW OASIS OF THE SEAS BY ROYAL CARRIBEAN IS OFFICALY THE BIGGEST AND LONGEST CRUISE IN THE WORLD. ( Full Answer )

Titanic was the biggest ship. bigger than it's sisters the Olympic and Britannic No, it was the biggest ship for its time. At the time of her maiden voyage, SS Titanic was the largest ship in the world. Her sister ship SS Olympic was about the same length, but Titanic was heavier by about ten thousa…nd gross tons. Some of this extra weight was from the enclosed screens on A deck, which are one of the main ways that you can tell the difference between the two. Since that time, there have been longer and heavier ships constructed, both liners and cargo vessels with some oil tankers being the largest ships today. There was also the Britannic in that class but she was sunk by a German U Boat when she was a hospital ship carrying injured troops to England during the Great War. Many ships now days are much larger. Air craft carriers are good examples. ( Full Answer )
The R.M.S. Titanic .It was over 882 ft long and 92.5 ft wide, the length translates to 1/6 of a mile. She stood over 100 ft tall, she also weighed 45,000 tons. Sorry, but the Titanic doesn't even come close to the size of modern cruise ships, aircraft carriers, or oil tankers. Seawise Giant, a sup…ertanker built in 1979, was the longest ship with the greatest tonnage ever built. In fact, it was the largest self-propelled man-made object ever created. She was 1504 feet from bow to stern and could carry 646,642 long tons. Her draft was too deep to pass through the Suez Canal, Panama Canal, or even the English Channel. ( Full Answer )

Yes, the Titanic was one of the largest ships of its time(I think). These days, of course, it isn't all that big since they have a ton of huge oil tankers and stuff.
