Royal Caribbean To Build 220,000 Ton Ship--Complete With It's Own New York Style Central Park

No word yet on whether muggers and smog will be stock features, but:

The world's biggest cruise liner is to have a New York-style "Central Park" on the ship, its owners have revealed.

Royal Caribbean is building the 220,000-tonne liner with the working name Project Genesis and the announcement is the latest salvo in the intensely competitive global cruise market.

The company said the park would be "a revolutionary design in which the centre of the ship opens to the sky and features lush, tropical grounds spanning the length of a football field".

Is it just me, or does the continual need to 'up the ante', whether it be reality-based television (marriage decimating polygraph tests) or ships of this gilded magnitude just scream "breaking point?"
