Cruise ship grows by 30 metres

This amazing time-lapse video shows a cruise ship being extended by 30 metres.

The ship was cut in half and a new mid-section was welded into place.

The work took place at the Blohm+Voss shipyard in Hamburg back in 2007.

It took two months in total and now hundreds more passengers can be carried on the ship.
