The world's biggest cruise ship docks in Malaga
The ‘Harmony of the Seas’, the largest cruise ship ever built, docked at the port of Malaga on Friday morning after sailing from Vigo. The mega-ship is on its maiden voyage from Southampton (UK) to Barcelona, having recently been launched at a French shipyard.
The new record-breaker weighs 227,000 tonnes and measures 360 metres, more than the Eiffel Tower. Local shops, restaurants and attractions are welcoming around 6,000 passengers and 2,100 crew who will be in the city until 6pm, when the ship sets sail again.
On board the Royal Caribbean-owned vessel, passengers have been enjoying 18 decks of the latest luxury and advanced technology. Features include tunnel water slides stretching the equivalent of 10 decks and a high-level zip wire ride.
Once it reaches Barcelona, the ship will operate cruises on a triangular route to France, Italy and Mallorca over the summer before crossing the Atlantic to the Caribbean for the winter.source surinenglish
