World’s largest cruise ship
Royal Caribbean has launched the world’s largest cruise ship, Harmony of the Seas. The traditional delivery and flag changing ceremony in Saint Nazaire, France followed 32 months of construction at the STX France shipyard. Harmony of the Seas will carry 5,479 guests at double occupancy and 2,100 crew members. The ship will homeport in Barcelona, Spain and embark on the first of 34 seven-night sailings in the western Mediterranean on 7 June. Costing more than a $1 billion, Harmony of the Seas will be the 25th ship in the Royal Caribbean fleet and boasts first-at-sea experiences, including the tallest slide at sea [plunging ten stories down from deck 16 to the boardwalk on deck six].
