By  |  1 Comment

GIANT CRUISE SHIP. The Celebrity Reflection, Celebrity Cruises’ fifth ship in its Solstice class of vessels, has left the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, the Travel Weekly reported

The Celebrity cruise line said the vessel crossed the Ems River in 10 hours on its way to the North Sea.

The size of the vessel and the geography of the shipyard required the captain to steer the ship backward, assisted by tugboats.

The journey also required the removal of power lines and railway tracks that normally pass over the river, according to the cruise line.

These Celebrity Reflection photos show the enormous dimensions of the ship.
