How to Enlarge a Ship

Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines couldn't wait three years for new ships to be built to fill the demand for cruises, so they expanded instead. The ship named Enchantment of the Seas was cut into two pieces and pulled apart!
After that, the construction crew moved the two halves of the ship away from each other, and positioned a huge 73 foot, 2,500 ton section (which contained 151 furnished rooms) between them. Then came the final part – reattaching cables, pipes and everything else – a process that took two weeks.

The ship now has the capacity for 300 additional vacationers. -via Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories

This is nothing new for Canadians living on Vancouver Island. Several vessels in our car ferry fleet have not only been lengthened in this manner, but have also had an additional deck added vertically.
