Watch: World's Largest LEGO Ship Constructed

Posted to Maritime Reporter (by on April 17, 2018

Time-lapse video shows the world's largest LEGO ship construction.

Earlier this year, the world's largest cruise ship, the 362 meters long, 228,081 GRT Symphony of the Seas, was delivered for owner Royal Caribbean.

Now, there's another type of world's largest cruise ship, but this one doesn't sail and it's made entirely out of LEGO.

A new ship model built to celebrate the launch of Dream Cruises’ new 18-deck, 151,695-ton cruise ship World Dream has been awarded a Guinness World Records certificate for the largest LEGO ship. Constructed using more than 2.5 million LEGO blocks, the ship model weighs over 2,800 kg and measures 8.44 m long, 1.33 m wide and 1.53 m tall.

The giant model was built over two months by more than 1,000 cruise line guests and members of the public, with the help of LEGO certified professional, Andy Hung. It was officially unveiled at Kai Tak Cruise Terminal.

The World Dream model isn’t the first giant LEGO ship. In 2016, employees of Danish shipping company DFDS A/S built the world’s largest supported LEGO ship, a 12.035-meter long vessel christened Jubilee Seaways.
