Harmony Of The Seas Tests The Waters

March 11, 2016

Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas tested the waters during float out in France today.

The world’s largest cruise ship (weighing in at 227,000 tons) will carry over 6,000 guests when she launches on the 20th of May.

During her float out and sea trial she had around 500 crew aboard to carry out tests to check that she is ready to sail.

The sea trial will now continue until Sunday in preparation for the launch.

She has 18 decks, a sports zone, two waterslides and seven different “neighbourhoods” of entertainment (including the Royal Promenade, Boardwalk, Central Park, Pool and Sports Zone, Youth Zone, Entertainment Place and the Vitality At Sea Spa & Fitness Centre).

Harmony is 1,187 feet long – which is 165 feet longer than the Eiffel Tower!

The www.CRUISE.co.uk team visited Harmony not long ago – and you would not believe the how much she has changed since then! You can see the pictures of that visit here.
