The largest vessel ever to visit the Port of Seattle arrived Monday morning, February 29, 2016. We spotted her on arrival and snapped the photo below. The CMA CGM Benjamin Franklin is larger than the Queen Mary II. It is also larger than the USS George H W Bush Aircraft Carrier. Be sure to see the cool graphic (below) from the CMA CGM website that shows comparative sizes.
