WORLD'S LARGEST CRUISE SHIP IS SO BIG GUESTS USE GPS TO FIND ROOMS

Giant: Weighing 227,000 tons – and 124ft longer than the Eiffel Tower is tall - Harmony Of The Seas is the largest cruise ship ever to set sail

Giant: Weighing 227,000 tons – and 124ft longer than the Eiffel Tower is tall - Harmony Of The Seas is the largest cruise ship ever to set sail

She is a true leviathan of the oceans. Weighing in at 227,000 tons – and 124ft longer than the Eiffel Tower is tall – the new Harmony Of The Seas is the largest cruise ship ever to set sail.

The awesome vessel – which set out on its maiden trial voyage in March– is so vast it even houses a scaled down version of New York’s Central Park within its 18 decks – complete with 10,587 plants and 52 trees up to 20ft tall.

An astonishing feat of engineering, built at a cost more than £800million, Harmony Of The Seas pulled slowly out of Saint-Nazaire in France, where she was built, with no fewer than three pilots on board – specially trained on computer simulators – to guide her through the difficult manoeuvres needed to exit the estuary.

Such is the scale of the quarter-of-a-mile long Royal Caribbean International ship, when its first 6,000 passengers board in Southampton in May they will be issued with GPS-style wrist trackers so they won’t get lost in her labyrinthine interiors.
