On board world's biggest cruise ship Oasis of the Seas


The world's largest cruise ship, the Oasis of the Seas, is preparing to set off on its maiden voyage next month.

Built by Royal Caribbean at a cost of more than £800m, it can carry more than 6,000 passengers and will have a crew of more than 2,000.

It includes a 750-seat Greek-style amphitheatre, a shopping mall, an ice rink, a 1,300-seat indoor theatre and an open-air park with real trees and plants.

Emma Simpson took a look around.
