VLADIMIR Putin has tested his terrifying new missiles by blowing up a fleet of warships in a training exercise. Footage released by Russia’s defence ministry showed the capabilities of the country’s Kh-35U anti-ship missiles. They were fired from a Su-34 long range strike aircraft and managed to sink a group of ships which were imitating a group of enemy vessels. The training exercise was a triumph with all eight launches successfully striking the intended targets. Russia’s Ministry of Defence said: “Su-34 multifunctional fighter-bombers carried out practical launches of the newest guided anti-ship missiles Kh-35U. “All in all eight launches were carried out, all missiles successfully hit targets.” Russian officials claim the state-of-the-art Kh-35 is immune to any enemy attack.

Touché. Maybe next year, Royal Caribbean will crack that. But for now, we'll have to content ourselves with the the floating theme park that is Symphony of the Seas - a spanking, Oasis-class behemoth fresh from the shipyard. At 362m, Symphony is the largest cruise ship on the planet, and she's spending her first summer on the Med before setting sail for the Caribbean. It's the perfect opportunity to try out a cutting-edge family cruise... without long-haul flights. The kids are first-timers, so I'm letting them lead the discovery.
