Largest Ship In The World
The largest cruise ship in the world, dubbed a floating city, has docked in Southampton after setting sail from France.
The 362-metre-long Harmony of the Seas cost $1 billion (£700 million) and is larger than the Eiffel Tower.

- 23 swimming pools
- Central Park – a living park in the centre of the ship with more 10,000 plants and 50 trees
- 24 lifts for guests
- The Ultimate Abyss – the tallest slide at sea, plunging visitors 10 stories from deck 16 to deck 6
- The deepest pool at sea
- A double-story Wonderland specialty restaurant
- 11,252 works of art
- Robot bartenders
- Virtual balconies with real-time views of the destination for interior rooms
- 2,100 crew members from 77 different nationalities
