Quantum of the Seas cruise ship of Bahamas - one of the world's biggest ships - transited the Suez Canal on Thursday coming from the Mediterranean Sea to pass from the Red Sea to the Indian Ocean.
A Suez Canal Authority source said the 395 million dollar ship was built in 2014 and can carry 4,000 tourists.
Quantum of the Seas is a cruise ship for Royal Caribbean International (RCI) and the lead ship of the Quantum class of cruise ships.
