Super Explorers want to show you the ships and boats of the world, from the smallest dinghy to the largest cruiseship. • Barques were used 5000 years ago in Ancient Egypt, but they looked a bit different than the ones we have today. • Longships were Viking ships and could sail forward and backward. • Harmony of the Seas, the biggest cruise ship, can carry 5400 passengers and 2300 crew • In one minute, a fireboat can pump enough water to fill 1000 bathtubs. • Hovercrafts travel on a cushion of air over water, land or ice. • An aircraft carriers is like a floating airport.
