The world’s biggest ever cruise ship is about to be sold for scrap metal.

The Global Dream II, which can carry 9,000 passengers, cost $2.1billion. Sadly, the boat looks like it will be scrapped before it has ever set sail.

Global Dream II was constructed by the German-Hong Kong shipbuilding firm MV Werften. It was nearly finished when the company went bankrupt at the start of the year.

Since then, no buyer has been found and the enormous 20-deck vessel is now set to be sold for scrap.

The 340m Global Dream II includes a cinema and an outdoor waterpark.
