Theme day: BIG!!!
Based in Barcelona, this is the MS Voyager of the Seas, a Royal Caribbean International cruise ship. It became the world’s largest cruise ship when it entered service in 1999 (for a while, anyway).
The numbers are amazing:
|Tonnage:||137,276 GT (gross tonnage)|
|Length:||1,020 ft (310.90 m)|
|Beam:||156 ft (47.55 m)|
|Height:||63 m (206.69 ft)|
|Draft:||29 ft (8.84 m)|
|Propulsion:||3 x 14 MW Azipod propulsion, two azimuthing, one fixed|
|Speed:||23.7-knot (44 km/h; 27 mph)|
There is pretty much everything you can think of on that ship, even an ice skating rink and a wedding chapel! Cost half a billion dollars, after all!
Just behind, you can make up Montjuic Hill, and Barcelona Castle.
