Majestic Mærsk - the world's longest cargo ship - passed by on its way to Gothenburg

The world's longest cargo ship, Majestic Mærsk, today left Copenhagen, where it was named by Crown Princess Mary of Denmark. The 398 m x 58 m container ship now continues its maiden voyage to Gothenburg.

Thousands of fans and spectators visited the second in Maersk Line’s fleet of 20 Triple-E vessels during its stay in the Danish capital. This afternoon, hundreds of people had gathered in Helsingborg to watch the gigantic ship pass by on its way to Gothenburg. This may have been the last chance to see the Majestic in Øresund, because it will not access ports in this region or the Baltic when in ordinary service.
