Onlookers at Cape Cod Canal got thrilled in the morning on October 2 (Friday) at around 10 a.m. when MS The World cruise ship sailed through the canal. Cape Cod is an artificial waterway in Massachusetts which connects Cape Cod Bay situated in the north to Buzzards Bay, south.

The World passed under Sagamore, Bourne, railroad bridges. The largest residential cruise ship in the world is 644-feet long and continually sails around the world, visiting spectacular ports and sights. The luxury liner has 165 residences, including studio, 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom apartments.

The spectacular vessel began its 2015 voyage in Singapore, sailing north and then west around India. The World then sailed Indian Ocean and headed south of Africa, then north along the Western Coast of Africa. The ship spent late spring and early summer in the Mediterranean Sea, stopping at plenty of ports in France, Spain, Greece and Italy. Before sailing through Cape Cod Canal, The World sailed to the British Isles, Greenland, Iceland, Boston and Canada.

The privately-owned cruise vessel will wrap up its 2015 journey with an expedition in Antarctica. Later this year, it will pass through Panama Canal
