Royal Caribbean has released the latest construction photos of Harmony of the Seas from the STX shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France. Even though the huge 227,000 gross ton vessel looks complete on the outside there is still lots to do inside. All the interior spaces are being put together so that when guests first walk onboard this May they will feel the WOW factor. Crew members are starting to set up their departments and get the ship ready for sailing.
Here are the photos released by Royal Caribbean:
Harmony of the Seas will become the world’s largest cruise ship once it debuts in May. The massive vessel will span 16 passenger decks and carry 5,497 passengers at double occupancy. Harmony of the Seas is the third Oasis class ship but with a slightly bigger tonnage than Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas.
Royal Caribbean recently announced the ship’s entertainment line-up and just 1 month ago finally revealed the 10-story high Ultimate Abyss slide, a slide that twists down all the way to the boardwalk neighbourhood at the aft. There are too many features to mention but guests will definitely be excited with all the different things which can be experienced.
Once in service Harmony of the Seas will sail a series of cruises from Southampton, UK from May 22. Then the ship will sail an inaugural summer season in the Mediterranean before sailing a transatlantic cruise to its new home at Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Cruises will begin from Florida on May 5, 2016.
