Watch as Harmony of the Seas arrives at the Port of Southampton, UK:
Harmony of the Seas was just delivered to Royal Caribbean days ago at a grand ceremony onboard the ship. The ceremony honored all the crew of the world’s largest cruise ship while it was still docked at the STX France shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France.
The unparalleled cruise ship and her 2,100 dedicated crew members then will officially launch her inaugural summer season with the first of 34 seven-night western Mediterranean sailings on June 7.
In November 2016, Harmony will arrive at her home port of Port Everglades, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., from where she will offer seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean sailings. The newest member of the fleet will join sister ships Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, homeported in Port Canaveral and Port Everglades respectively, on the east coast of Florida.
