Harmony of the Seas Will Be Largest Cruise Ship

Royal Caribbean International has announced that Harmony of the Seas, the world’s largest cruise ship, will be the first ship in the Royal Caribbean fleet to feature Splashaway Bay, an interactive aqua park for children.

  • Splashaway Bay will join Ultimate Abyss, a 10-storey slide, and The Perfect Storm trio of waterslides as the latest in a thrilling collection of activities that will make Harmony of the Seas the ultimate family holiday experience.
  • Splashaway Bay will be a vibrant waterpark for children and toddlers with sea creature water cannons, winding slides, a giant drench bucket and a multi-platform climbing frame to keep everyone entertained for hours.
  • Guests of all ages will get the ultimate heart pounding thrill ride on Ultimate Abyss, the tallest slide at sea that offers a dramatic 100-foot plunge that begins in the Pool and Sports Zone and journeys down to the Boardwalk neighbourhood below.
  • Spiralling five decks above the open-air Central Park in the centre of the ship, waterslides Supercell, Typhoon and Cyclone come together as The Perfect Storm, inviting guests to slide into an incredible adventure. Thrill seekers can test their mettle on Supercell, a champagne bowl slide that swirls guests around as they descend towards a big splash finale.

Harmony of the Seas will be the first in a new generation of Oasis-class ships that combine groundbreaking architectural innovation with breakthrough technologies found on Quantum-class ships.

The ship will arrive in May 2016 for her inaugural summer season, showcasing Europe’s most popular cruise destinations on seven-night Western Mediterranean itineraries calling at Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Provence, Florence and Pisa, Rome and Naples. In November 2016, Harmony of the Seas will arrive at her homeport of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, offering seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean sailings.
