Royal Caribbean Calls Its New Cruise Ship Harmony of the Seas a ‘City’



She is the world’s largest cruise ship. Her name is Harmony of the Seas. Royal Caribbean International says she is   to be taller than the Eiffel Tower and wider than anything in its class.

Costing more than a $1 billion, Harmony of the Seas will be the 25th ship in the Royal Caribbean fleet and boasts highly anticipated first-at-sea experiences, including:

  • A 100-foot drop with The Ultimate Abyss, the tallest slide at sea, plunging courageous adrenaline seekers 10 stories down from deck 16 to the Boardwalk on deck 6
  • 4, 700, 000 lbs. (2, 150 tons) of water in 23 swimming pools, whirlpools, two FlowRider surf simulators and waterslides, including the Perfect Storm, a thrilling trio of waterslides, and the Splashaway Bay waterpark for young guests
  • The first double-story Wonderland, the specialty restaurant concept first introduced onboard the global cruise line’s Quantum class of ships delivering an imaginative and whimsical feast for all the senses
  • The debut of Broadway’s hit musical Grease in the Royal Theater and spectacular diving shows in the AquaTheater
  • 11, 252 works of art showcased throughout the ship and Central Park, a living park in the center of the ship which features a total of 10, 587 plants, 48 vine plants and 52 trees, some over 20 feet (6.1 meters) high
  • VOOM, the fastest internet at sea, available exclusively to Royal Caribbean guests, which allows travelers to seamlessly stay connected, stream their favorite entertainment, video chat and share their adventures with friends and family at home

                  Harmony of the Seas will homeport in Barcelona, Spain and embark on the first of 34 seven-night sailings in the western Mediterranean on June 7, exploring some of Europe’s most beautiful locations.

In November 2016, Harmony will arrive at her homeport of Port Everglades, Fort Lauderdale, FL., from where she will offer seven-night eastern and western Caribbean sailings.
