The largest vessel to ever pass through the Corinth Canal, southern Greece, amazed both the passengers on board and spectators Wednesday morning, October 9.
Carrying over 1,200 passengers and crew onboard, the 196-meter (643-foot) long ship was, as per regulations, assisted by a tugboat along her passage through the canal in order to avoid any unwelcome consequences.
The mega-ship was so close to the canal's edges that passengers could reach out their hands and touch the trees on both sides of the waterway.
