Modular Built Housing Goes on a Long Sea Cruise

Ever wonder how cruise ships are built?

This short video takes you inside the factory of Meyer Werft, a German shipyard founded in 1795 that now builds luxury cruise ships. 

Indeed, it does look quite a bit like a car factory—or any other manufacturing facility with an assembly line. What's especially impressive about the process, though, is the fact that the cabins are completely prefabricated before they go on the ship. Everything from the faucets to the carpet to the sofas are installed in the factory and then the rooms are just stacked inside the cruise ship hull.
