Hong Kong's Dream Cruises has built a LEGO replica of the World Dream.

The replica of the 18-deck, 151,695-ton cruise ship was constructed using more than 2.5 million LEGO blocks and is the largest LEGO ship to be built to date. It weighs over 2,800 kilograms (6,173 pounds) and measures 8.44 meters (27.7 feet) long, 1.33 meters (4.36 feet) wide and 1.53 meters (five feet) tall.

The giant model ship was built by more than 1,000 cruise line guests and members of the public, with the help of Greater China’s first LEGO certified professional, Andy Hung. After two months of effort, it was officially unveiled at Kai Tak Cruise Terminal.

After the final measuring, the cruise company was presented with an official Guinness World Records certificate.

This isn't the first time a huge replica ship has been made out of LEGO. In 2016, employees of Danish shipping and transport services company DFDS built the world’s Largest LEGO ship (supported) and successfully constructed a 12-meter long (39 foot) ship.
