P&O Cruise Ship Britannia visits Liverpool

P&O’s latest cruise ship the MV Britannia is the largest of its kind and one of the largest ships to visit Liverpool. The engines generate the same power as 86 Bugatti Veyrons.¬†She’s 15 meters shorter than QM2 and 2 meters shorter. So not the biggest cruise ship to visit the city but certainly pretty big.

The World in Liverpool

The World has been described as the largest private yacht on the planet. It’s entirely privately owned and basically goes where ever it wants. It’s more like a floating apartment complex than cruise ship. Some people live there while others just visit, like a summer house in Spain. It certainly sounds surreal living on a ship for an entire year. Port to port. It’s not cheap either. Wikipedia suggests that the cheapest apartment is $600,000 jumping up to $2,950,00 for a 2 bed and then jumping up again to a whopping¬†$13,500,000 for a suite. You could own a boat for that price. It probably wouldn’t have its own cinema or deli, but you could still see the world.

So here is the ship in Liverpool. A floating apartment block merging with the Liverpool skyline. The World and a world class skyline.
