A record was broken at the London International Cruise Terminal earlier this week.

The giant Mein Schiff 3 cruise liner sailed into the London Cruise Terminal in Tilbury as part of a 7-night European cruise.

The 293 metre ship, owned by TUI Cruises, is the largest cruise liner that the terminal has welcomed with an incredible 2700 passengers disembarking for sight-seeing trips around London and the surrounding area.

One of the main highlights of the vessel, is a diamond-shaped glass exterior at the stern over two decks covering an area of approximately 167m².

Onboard, there's an entertainment zone, and restaurants, lounges and bars as well as an indoor pool with hot tub.

It also has aboard, the world's first chamber music philharmonic at sea, the Klanghaus, which is a 270m² room with a seating capacity for 300 guests.
