Thousands Of Crew Gather For Harmony of the Seas Timelapse And Selfie

It’s all been about the 227,000 gross ton Harmony of the Seas these last few days! The largest cruise ship in the world was delivered from STX France to Royal Caribbean in a tradition ceremony yesterday. The ceremony was held at the shipyard in Saint Nazaire, France.

Before the ceremony could take place all the crew members, staff and officers gathered for the historic delivery event. Located aft of the ship at the AquaTheater, a timelapse video was done which shows all the crew assembling together. Looks like a complicated task!

In another video released by Royal Caribbean, a selfie was taken with the entire crew. Could this be the largest selfie at sea? We think so! Royal Caribbean’s Vice President of Entertainment, Nick Weir seemed to be enjoying himself with the camera while capturing the historic moment.

We’ve got a little bonus for you too. A few days ago Nick Weir had some fun with the cast Harmony of the Seas Grease production show. The new show will debut on the world’s largest ship once it begins sailing with passengers this month.

In just over a week Harmony of the Seas will sail a series of cruises out of Southampton, UK. The ship will then home port in Barcelona, Spain and embark on the first of 34 seven-night sailings in the western Mediterranean on June 7. From November, 2016 the vessel will begin sailing from Port Everglades, Florida to offer Caribbean cruises.
