Laid down: The world's biggest and most expensive ever cruise ship is just days away from setting sail on its maiden voyage.

Royal Caribbean's 'Symphony of the Seas' docked in Malaga, Spain where it dwarfs all nearby apartment blocks.

The ship weighs 228,000 tonnes, and at 1,188 feet long, it is just 20 metres shy of the length of the Empire State Building in New York.

Built over two years, the monster liner can hold up to 8,000 people including 2,200 staff.

The ship cost £959m ($1.35bn).


For those wanting to relax, guests in the suite can chill out in the private cinema that comes with a 85-inch HD TV along with a library of video games.

The playground onboard the huge cruise ship has a nautical theme park.

Boasting 18 decks, enough room for 8,880 passengers.

A shopping area inside the gigantic cruise ship is opened up for visitors during the presentation.

Symphony of the Seas boasts a total eight decks and has enough room on board to accommodate 8,000 people.

Other attractions include a zip wire, ice rink, mini golf course, climbing walls, surf simulator and a full-size basketball court

For guests wanting to go from the top level to the bottom without taking the stairs they can travel down the cabin's orange slide.
