AIDA Prima construction time-lapse

Time-lapse video of the construction of a modern cruise ship in Nagasaki, Japan. The last part of the video is the ship being christened in Hamburg, Germany harbor during a festival they were having there.

I can’t stop watching this. The tinker-toy modularity of it, it’s fascinating. And, like watching heavy, large commercial airplanes take off, it’s hard to fathom that this thing floats with all of that steel in it.
