Harmony of the Seas is one of the world’s biggest cruises ever made, and this cruise ship is unlike any other, to say the least.

This grand ship even has an indoor swimming pool with a diving board, perfect for a diver on vacation.

While most people would feel anxious standing on a regular diving board, it’s a breeze for a professional, even when traveling through the ocean.

Diver dives 55ft from the top of huge cruise ship

The video of an impressive 55-foot dive was uploaded on the official Instagram account of Ginni van Katwijk, a professional diver.

It’s the fun activities like this and the overall amenities of the cruise ship that make some people decide to live permanently at sea.

A dive from such a height would make most people anxious, but it’s all about the adrenaline for a select few.

However, it’s not something you should try without proper training.

For Ginni van Katwijk, who’s part of TeamNL and has worked with Red Bull, dives like these are easy.

But for those without experience, it can be quite the scare.

People commented on the video, sharing their anxiety over the dive.

One user commented, “Did anybody else get anxiety watching this?”

Another one said, “They don’t let normal people do this, right? Like the dude that got the all-inclusive alcohol package and thinks he’s an Olympic diver now lol.”

Well, that’s true; a normal person shouldn’t try it.
