The world’s biggest-ever cruise ship, named the Harmony of the Seas, has been launched.
The huge vessel, which cost close to $1bn to build is capable of accommodating more than 8,000 passengers and crew.
The giant vessel also features a 1,400-seat theatre, a park with 12,000 plant species and a 10-storey water slide.
At 66 metres (217ft), it is the widest cruise ship ever built, while its 362m length makes it 50 metres longer than the height of the Eiffel Tower.
At Kiwi Kids News we think the coolest thing on the trip is “The Ultimate Abyss”, a 10-storey slide from the top deck to the main deck which RCCL bills as the world’s biggest ship-mounted waterslide.
