WATCH: Just what goes into stretching a cruise ship?

Witness the seemingly impossible art of stretching a cruise ship

We’ve already written at length about our experience at the Fincantieri shipyard to witness Silversea’s Silver Spirit being cut in half and welded back together again, but there are some things you just have to see for yourself.

Take a look below and be sure to tell us what you think about it on social media and, if you haven’t already, click here to read our in-depth report about everything that happened in Fincantieri this weekend.
