PHOENIX WORLD CITY: BILLION-DOLLAR SHIP PROJECT TAKES SHAPE AT AVONDALE

One of the boldest and most ambitious projects ever conceived in cruise ship history is discussed--namely, the plan to construct the world's largest cruise ship, the 5,600-passenger PHOENIX WORLD CITY. The ship would have a gross tonnage of 250,000--more than the NORWAY, the QE2 and the SOVEREIGN OF THE SEAS, combined. Detailed drawings are shown, including a composite section, deck plans, and cabin layouts. New Orleans-based Avondale Industries outbid European competitors for the contract to complete final engineering and prepare a firm bid price and delivery date for the ship.
