Royal Caribbean International's Allure of the Seas passes under the Storbaelt Bridge with just 51cm to spare

Just like her sister Oasis of the Seas the Allure of the Seas has to pass below the Storbaelt (or Great Belt) bridge in Denmark after her construction is completed.

Captain Hernan Zini then has to navigate the English Channel before entering into the Northern Atlantic and heading directly to her future home port of Port Everglades, near Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA

The resultant bridge clearance in the end was just 51cm, with a 3.8cm margin of error.

Take a look at the video below to see the Allure of the Seas’ telescoping funnels in action.
