The world’s largest ship, Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas arrived at Southampton where she will pick up her first passengers.
She is so big, she has seven distinct neighbourhood concepts which are exclusive to the line’s Oasis-class ships.
She’ll also have some thrill seeking activities like The Ultimate Abyss which is the tallest slide at sea with a 10-storey plunge, robot bartenders at The Bionic Bar, virtual balconies with real-time views of the destination.
After 32 months of construction, Harmony becomes the 25th ship in the Royal Caribbean fleet.
“Harmony of the Seas is redefining cruise holidays and intriguing a new generation of travellers with a bold and unexpected line-up of first at sea innovations, while enticing them to explore the world from a new perspective,” said Michael Bayley, President and CEO of Royal Caribbean International.
“From thrilling onboard activities and experiences to visiting awe-inspiring destinations across the Mediterranean and the Caribbean, Harmony places guests at the forefront and encourages them to create their own adventures onboard and at every destination.
Harmony of the Seas will sail from Southampton in the UK on a series of short getaways to Northern Europe before embarking on her maiden cruise on May 29 arriving in Barcelona, Spain.
In November 2016, Harmony will arrive at her homeport of Port Everglades, Fort Lauderdale in Florida where she will offer seven-night eastern and western Caribbean sailings.
