Behind the scenes of Harmony of the Seas

Harmony of the Seas, the world’s largest ever cruise ship, is now 80 per cent complete.

To get us excited about the ship’s debut, and let us see what a cruise ship really looks like without it’s makeup, Royal Caribbean International have released images inside the build.

Although her colossal size will be one for the record books on its own, Royal Caribbean have also tricked out Harmony of the Seas with features such as the longest slide as sea; the Ultimate Abyss, a 10-storey heart-pounding plunge; the Perfect Storm, a trio of twisting water slides five decks high; and Splashaway Bay, a kid’s water park with slides, cannons and drench bucket.

Returning favourites for this the third Ocean Class include the seven distinct neighbourhoods, zip lining, ice skating, rock climbing and FlowRider surfing simulators, entertaining Broadway shows on the stage, and high diving acrobatics in the Aqua Theatre.

Dining onboard is taken to a new level with over 20 other bars and lounges to choose from including Izumi Hibachi & Sushi, Sabor Taqueria and Tequila Bar, and Wonderland Imaginative Cuisine, a whimsical setting where Royal Caribbean chefs twist their culinary kaleidoscopes.

The ship’s inaugural summer season will see her visit popular destinations such as Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca in Spain, Provence in France, and Italian favourites including Florence, Rome and Naples on seven-night Western Med itineraries.
