Maersk are building a class of about 8 ships like this one. As Brain has already said, one is the Emma Maersk. She's the first one. Others are Eleonora, Ellie, Evelyn being other examples. I'm sure other members will come up with the others.

On a recent transit of the Panama I noticed special markings on the locks for Maersk ships. They must be one of the most powerful companies as far as shipping goes.

As far as I know, Maersk does not take any passengers on their ships although they would have space for them. Norfolkline are the only ships that do take passengers, ferries from continental Europe to Great Britain.

In the 1970's I noticed that the locks at the Panama Canal had yellow markers on the lock sides near the gates with "Tokyo Bay class" (OCL and P+O) written on the markers.

Estelle Maersk and Ebba Maersk are also sister ships...

The beast of the pack, Emma, is named after Maersk founder's wife.

I wouldn't want to work on such a huge container vessel. The reason I want to join the Merchant Navy is to see the world, as many other people - but think of the restrictions with that biggun!
