Interesting Facts and Features

The vessel's air draft exceeds that of the Great Belt Fixed Link in Denmark which the ship had to pass under to get to the open sea. Passage was made possible by retractable funnels and the ship squat effect. The ship cleared with less than 2 feet to spare.

The ship also features a zip-line, a casino, mini-golf course, volleyball courts, basketball courts, a theme park, nurseries, work-out facilities, spa, and four swimming pools.
