The world's largest cruise ship, which is almost 165 feet longer than the Eiffel Tower, has set off on its first sea trial from France.

Harmony of the Seas, which cost almost £800million to build and weighs 227,000 tonnes, was helped from Saint-Nazaire port by six tug boats this afternoon.

Although there's no passengers on the ship yet, which is nearly 330 foot longer than the Titanic, there are still around 500 crew aboard as its continues its sea trial until Sunday.
