It’s of­fi­cial! World’s largest cruise ship is now sail­ing!

Out & About with Kids - - DID YOU KNOW...? -

Af­ter 32 months of con­struc­tion, Royal Caribbean In­ter­na­tional has launched the 25th ship in its fleet – and it’s also the world’s largest cruise ship! Har­mony of the Seas is nearly four foot­ball fields long and was built with more than 500,000 in­di­vid­ual parts. It’s so big, it has seven dis­tinct neigh­bour­hoods! Al­though she won’t be sail­ing Aus­tralian wa­ters any time soon, Har­mony will be treat­ing guests to a whole bunch of 21st Cen­tury fun on Mediter­ranean and Caribbean itin­er­ar­ies, and in­tro­duc­ing them to ground­break­ing at-sea features in­clud­ing The Ul­ti­mate Abyss, the tallest slide at sea with a 10-storey plunge; three multi-storey wa­ter­slides; ro­bot bar­tenders at The Bionic Bar, pow­ered by Makr Shakr; vir­tual bal­conies with real-time views of the des­ti­na­tion, and VOOM – the fastest in­ter­net at sea.


And, as we told you in our last is­sue, Ova­tion of the Seas, the $1 bil­lion, big­gest, new­est and most tech­no­log­i­cally-ad­vanced ship ever to call Aus­tralia home, will be here ready to sail at the end of 2016!
