Oasis of the Seas, the largest cruise ship cruised below the Storebaelt bridge (Great Belt Bridge) of Denmark on November 01, 2009. The bridge is about 65 metres above sea level and Oasis of the Seas rises 72 metres above the sea level.
The limitation of this bridge was taken into consideration while designing the vessel and the vessel is having telescopic funnel. The vessel retracted her telescopic funnel and cruised below the Storebaelt bridge with a clearance of around 1 metre.
