For the first time ever the biggest cruise ship in the world is sailing a transatlantic cruise. Harmony of the Seas is heading to the United States for the first time since it entered service in May 2016.

The ship is sailing a 14-day cruise which departed Barcelona, Spain on October 23. During the transatlantic voyage, Harmony of the Seas will call at Palma de Mallorca and Malaga before hitting the open seas of the Atlantic Ocean. The crossing which can be choppy at times will come to an end when the ship arrives at its new home port of Port Everglades, Florida on November 5.
