World’s largest cruise ships visit Palma


TWO of the world’s largest cruise ships were docked in Palma Port at the same time at the weekend.
One was the Norwegian Epic, the fifth largest, which arrives in Palma every week, and the other, on its first visit to Palma, was the Anthem of the Seas, the third largest in history, beaten only by the Oasis of the Seas and the Allure of the Seas. The latter also visits the city every week.
At the same time, the Aidavita, the Thomson Dream and the Star Flyer were also visiting, meaning that around 12,000 cruise ship passengers visited on that day.
Anthem of the Seas was christened on April 20, 2015 and during its first visit to Palma Port an event was held on board during which a commemorative gift was given to Swedish captain Gus Andersson by the representative of the Port Authorities, Jorge Nasarre.
It is 347 metres long, has 2,090 cabins and can carry 4,905 passengers.
