A company that operates big ships for real has made a fantastic one for pretend too, with Dream Cruises deciding to use 2.5 million Lego bricks to (a) get in the Guinness World Records, and (b) get people like us to spread the word of its for-real boats.
Hence this Lego version of the World Dream cruise ship, which smashes the longest-Lego-ship record previously held by that very nice Icelandic boy who built his own Lego Titanic and became a minor celebrity.
The World Dream cruiser is 8.44m long, was cheating because loads of people helped make it and they had industrial amounts of money, and weighs getting on for three tonnes. And no, there's almost certainly no point in trying to buy it as you don't have the room. Even the instruction manual wouldn't make it through the door. [Guinness]
