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.

Watch the Harmony of the seas being built in the video below. Skip to around 2 min to see the actual building process.

  2. I think its amazing the hard work and planning that went into to it. I was very interested to see how it was built ad what it looks like. I would love to go on this cruise although the slide might be a little intimidating.
