The world's largest container ship, the CMA CGM Marco Polo, arrived in Southampton Sunday on its maiden voyage. The container ship set sail from Ningbo, China, for Europe carrying a cargo of mainly Christmas gifts on Nov. 7.

The Marco Polo measures 54m wide by 396m long, about the same length as four football fields, and can carry a cargo of 16,020 20-foot containers, known as twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU), compared to the 11,000 TEUs for the next biggest ship currently in service.

The Marco Polo will call in Hamburg, Rotterdam, Zeebrugge and Le Havre among other ports before making its return journey to Ningpo.
