Harmony of the Seas Shows off at Shipyard in France

Royal Caribbean has released more photos of Harmony of the Seas as the ship is now less than six months away from entering service.

The photos from Royal Caribbean were taken in November and the huge cruise ship looks a lot different and fresher from the last revealed photos in October. Harmony of the Seas which is the third oasis class vessel is currently under construction at the STX shipyard in St. Nazaire, France. The ship will have more tonnage than sister ships Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas at 227,000 gross tons.

As seen in the photos below the onboard spaces are being developed ready for business in Spring 2016. The AquaTheater at the aft of the ship is also coming along well but not hints or teases for the yet to be revealed Abyss slide. The Abyss will be located above the AquaTheater and will be a 10-story slide that will twist all the way down.

In addition to the Abyss, Harmony of the Seas will bring several new onboard features including ‘The Perfect Storm’ set of slides. These water slides will feature Cyclone, Typhoon and Monsoon which will all offer guests a different kind of thrill. A new Splashaway Bay will be on the ships open deck which will also feature a new water play area for kids. Expect similar services and experiences to the Quantum class and Oasis class ships along with some new enhancements just for Harmony.

The 5,400 passenger Harmony of the Seas will become the world’s largest cruise ship once completed and will make its debut in April 2016. The ship will sail Caribbean cruises from Fort Lauderdale, Florida beginning November 2016. Before its cruises out of North America the ship will spend an inaugural season homeported in Barcelona, Spain.
