The worlds largest cruise ship, ‘Harmony of the Seas’  arrived in Southampton this week prior to it’s maiden voyage. This colossal 227,000 – tonne vessel cost £783m to build.  It is the length of  four football pitches 361 metres [Titanic was 269metres] and  65 metres wide. A crew of 2,100 and a speed 22knots.  Some special features include a 10 – storey water slide, Gardens with 20ft trees, Ice rink, robotic bar tenders and 16 decks for the 6,780 passengers.  I wonder how many lifeboats are on board?

The scale and size of the vessel is reminiscent of the maiden voyage of R.M.S. Titanic in 1912, when it too was the wonder of the age.
