    The DCL ships are bigger.

    The Titanic was 882 feet, 8 inches in length
    46,328 Gross tons
    92.5 feet wide
    Draft was 34 feet (how deep in the water to the bottom of the hull)

    The DCL ships:

    964 feet long
    83,000 Gross tons
    106 feet wide
    Draft of 25.3 feet

    Interesting site with facts about the Titanic:

    And the Disney ships are identical in size, and other statistical info. The only differences between the two are decor only.

    when u classify a ship by its size its always by a tons. A ship maybe shorter then then magic but a higher tonnage and would be considered bigger then the magic... just an fyi.. :)

    I can't find anything official to verify it, but I distinctly remember Captain Henry telling me that one of the ships is actually 1 foot shorter than the other, and The Magic has one more stateroom than The Wonder.

    While I don't remember any specifics, I do recall there are some minor differences between the Magic/Wonder than just the decor.

    As an example, I recall the exact tonnage is slightly different between them. They are both quoted as 83,000 tons but let me see what I can find on Google...

    ... after a breif search, I found the following numbers (don't know if the sources have them exactly right).

    Disney Magic 83,338 tons
    Disney Wonder 83,308 tons

    And for the time being the Magic has a BIG movie screen while the Wonder does not.

    The Magic also has a scar from consturction that the Wonder does not. The Magic was built in two seperate pieces while the Wonder was built in one piece. Thus the Wonder does not need the reinforcing in the center of the ship. When we took the ship tour the guide told us the this was the only differenence between the two ships other than decor.

    I always wondered how modern ships compared to Titanic, now I know thanks!
