Video: Life Aboard One of the Biggest Container Ships in the World

We saw a short clip of this video earlier this month along with a New York Times feature article, “Aboard a Cargo Colossus“, so consider this the extended version with interviews with the captain and crew.

The video offers a glimpse of what life is like aboard a Triple E containership, the MV Mary Maersk, which at 400 meters and with a capacity of 18,200 TEUs is one of the largest containerships in the world along with her sister vessels.

Maersk Line has order a total of 20 of the ships to be delivered by the end of 2015 from the DSME shipyard in South Korea.
