Harmony of the Seas Cruises
The third Oasis Class ship from Royal Caribbean is set to surpass her sisters and be even bigger and better. With added weight and length, she is will eclipse Allure of the Seas as the largest passenger cruise vessel in the world when she makes her eagerly anticipating debut in spring 2016. She will also be able to hold slightly more guests than the other Oasis class ships, with her double occupancy being increased from 5,400 to 5,479 and with a whopping maximum capacity of around 6,360.
As far as Harmony of the Seas’ public areas go, there will be a number of places which are familiar to those who have sailed with Royal Caribbean before as well as some exciting new additions. Some of the venues will be the same as those found on board Allure and Oasis of the Seas, whilst some spaces that have only been seen on board the Quantum class ships until now will also make an appearance. These will be joined by facilities that are being included on a Royal Caribbean ship for the first time, such as the ‘Perfect Storm’ waterslides and the Ultimate Abyss dry slide.
Accommodation is promised to be bigger and better than ever before as well, with more Loft Suites being made available and the return of the popular Boardwalk, Central Park and AquaTheatre view staterooms. Balcony sizes have also been increased slightly and those guests who choose to stay in a suite will once again have some exclusive venues to enjoy.
The innovative design of the ship will also include the seven neighbourhoods that can be found on the previous Oasis Class vessels. These are the Boardwalk, Royal Promenade, the Pool and Sports Zone, Vitality at Sea Spa and Fitness Centre, Entertainment Place, Youth Zone and Central Park. The last of which is home to over 12,000 live plants.
After a maiden cruise from Southampton on the 29th of May 2016, Harmony of the Seas will spend her first season sailing on 7-night Western Mediterranean itineraries from Barcelona and Rome. She will then sail across the Atlantic to offer Western and Eastern Caribbean cruises from November 2016 until April 2017.
