CMA CGM Marco Polo in Soton

This weekend we heard from Kyle in Hamburg that the worlds largest container ship, the Marco Polo, was scheduled to call at Southampton on Monday. We figured we should go see her. Quite the ship...
CMA CGM Marco Polo, 16,020 TEU, Home Port London.

Escorted by 4 Svitzer Tugs leaving port of Southampton 10/12/12

As you can see, she is floating about 5 m above her load waterline, and still barely made it into Southampton.

In other news, we are doing quite well, looking forward to Christmas. Also, I am quite jealous of my classmates about to go on ship. Happy Holidays and a safe voyage!
