More than 42,000 members of the public have already signed up to tour the world’s largest ship in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Maersk Line’s second 18,000 TEU Triple-E, unofficially named Majestic Maersk, is in the midst of her maiden voyage and is in Copenhagen this week for her official naming by Her Royal Highness the Crown Princess of Denmark Wednesday morning.

Following the naming ceremony, the vessel and the adjacent public exhibition on Langelinie quay will be opened up to the public. The exhibition, called “Bringing You the World”, will give the public a chance to learn about shipping, containerization, what’s in the containers, life at sea, and how the world’s largest ship is also the world’s most energy efficient.

More than 42,000 people have already booked their ticket to get on board the ship and as many as 50,000 people are expected to visit throughout the week.

Majestic Maersk, which is number two in a series of 20 Triple-E vessels currently on order, arrived in Copenhagen Sunday after sailing through the Great Belt in Denmark last week on its way to Gdansk in Poland and towards Denmark and Langelinie Quay in Copenhagen.

The naming ceremony will take place Wednesday September 25, 2013 at 10 a.m. and can be watched at the balustrade at Langelinie. Immediately after the ceremony the exhibition area will be open to the public.

The exhibition and passes to board the Triple-E are free. More information about how to attend can be found HERE.
