About Royal Caribbean International

Founded in Norway in 1969 and nowadays based in Miami “Royal Caribbean” is not only one of the largest cruise companies in the world, but also operates some of the world’s largest cruise ships. The brand is well known for innovations and new cruising concepts and offers an interesting mix of thrilling attractions, very professional service and very good cuisine. Though Americans are still the majority on Royal Caribbean’s ships the guests are becoming more and more international. Therefore the main language used on board is English.

 

The Ship

The Harmony of the Seas will be an “Oasis Class” ship. She is expected to be commissioned in summer 2016. Because she will exceed her 362 meters long sister ships by 2.15 meters and will also be 5.5 meters wider, the “Harmony” will be the world’s largest cruise ship. This ship offers room for up to 5,479 passengers on 16 decks.

 

Staterooms

All cabins are very spacious, modern, comfortably furnished and are all equipped with TV, telephone, bathroom with shower, air condition, hair dryer and much more.

 

Atmosphere on Board

The Harmony of the Seas offers great experiences for all age groups. Thanks to guests from all over the world the atmosphere is cosmopolitan and very relaxed. The service is friendly and very professional. Though the dress-code during the day is casual, on some evenings a formal attire is expected in the main dining room.

 

Food and Beverages

Correlating with the enormous size of the ship the Harmony of the Seas offers a large selection of restaurants, cafés and bars. Here every gourmet will be satisfied – and so will be those who seek simple snacks or wish to dine informally.

 

Entertainment, Sports and Relaxation

The “Harmony of the Seas” features seven so called “neighborhoods”, each packed with first-at-sea experiences: the oceanside AquaTheater, Starbucks, Broadway hit musicals, 3D movie theater, zip line, designer shopping at Coach and GUESS stores, and much more. There is something for everyone to discover on board. Besides, the latest Oasis Class ship introduces the first waterslides on Royal Caribbean with a splash.

 

Naturally such a large vessel also offers all those amenities cruise guests love and expect from every ship: a large Spa, a modern fitness area, pools…

 

Our Summary

The Harmony of the Seas is truly outstanding. No other cruise ship offers so many possibilities and has got so many features for all ages. This makes her to a destination in herself – the ports of call become a minor matter.
