Just like larger cars, larger cruise ships generally have lower fuel efficiency than smaller ones. The Royal Caribbean ‘Oasis of the Seas’ cruise ship is 1,187 feet long and 213 feet high. The maximum occupancy is 6,680 passengers. At its cruising speed of 26 miles per hour (mph), the Oasis uses 11,361 gallons of fuel every hour. This means that the Oasis of the Seas cruise ship gets an amazingly low 0.0023 miles per gallon (mpg) or just 12.08 feet per gallon.
