Royal Caribbean’s president and CEO, Michael Bayley, sent off the line’s newest ship, Harmony of the Seas as she departed on her official inaugural cruise from Barcelona this week. Harmony is sailing a five-night western Mediterranean cruise that visits Rome and Naples at full capacity, with guests from over 34 countries.
The ship features the distinct seven-neighborhood concept that the Oasis-class ships are known for, with features including a ten-story slide called Ultimate Abyss, the robotic bartenders at the Bionic Bar, interior rooms with virtual balconies, and the fastest internet at sea.
Harmony of the Seas’ inaugural season will offer week-long western Mediterranean itineraries, showcasing Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Provence, Florence/Pisa, Rome, and Naples. The ship will move to Port Everglades in November; her permanent homeport.
