Google continues to add Street View imagery to more places yet to be mapped. It’s had Street View-style indoor imagery for many places for quite some time, but now it’s doing cruise ships.

Google and Royal Caribbean International have partnered on a virtual tour of the cruise line’s Allure of the Seas vessel – the world’s largest cruise ship.

The tour consists of up to 20,000 close-up shots taken over eight days.

The images were united to form a virtual representation of the 6,000-passenger ship.

Holidaymakers can virtually walk through the ship’s decks, experience the twin FlowRiders surf simulators or see Central Park – the outdoor park that’s longer than a football field.

Royal Caribbean director of marketing and PR, Jo Briody said Google Street View allows consumers to go online and get as close as they can to actually being onboard.

“We are confident that once people get virtually immersed in Allure of the Seas’ various decks and features thanks to Google Street View technology, they’ll be eager to experience the real thing.”
