Royal Caribbean Announce Even More Features Coming to Harmony of the Seas

February 26, 2015

After announcing the name of its newest vessel earlier this week, those waiting to hear the details of Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas will be delighted to discover the wait is over. The cruise line has unveiled the exciting features onboard this new ship.

Harmony of the Seas will feature traditional onboard amenities found on Royal Caribbean’s existing Quantum and Oasis-class vessels, as well as a series of specially-tailored new additions.

Michael Bayley, president and chief executive of Royal Caribbean International, said: “We are orchestrating a medley of new exciting concepts with the best Royal Caribbean innovations to strike the perfect chord for adventurous vacationers.”

Passengers onboard Harmony of the Seas can expect an array of delicious dining options, multiple neighbourhoods featuring parks, cafes and play areas, and technological bracelets that can be used for making onboard purchases and reservations.

In the line’s first-ever water park, guests can twist and turn their way down a series of slides that are elevated on three different levels. One slide features a champagne bowl that spins riders around as they approach the exit.

The ship will also be home to seven onboard neighbourhoods where families and groups of friends can explore the amenities on offer. Neighbourhoods include the Royal Promenade, the Pool and Sports Zone, Vitality at Sea Spa and Fitness Centre, Boardwalk on Harmony, Entertainment Place and Youth Zone.

Boardwalk on Harmony has a Starbucks cafe, classic games arcade and a child-friendly climbing area.

When guests start to feel peckish, they can choose between classic and dynamic dining, and from a variety of cuisines, including Mexican and Japanese.

Restaurant Izumi Hibachi and Sushi offers a classic sushi menu and a teppenyaki menu, providing visitors with even more mouthwatering dishes to choose from, while Wonderland Imaginative Cuisine allows diners to sample speciality dishes from around the world.

Harmony of the Seas will also cater to the tech-savvy passengers onboard, bringing them RFID-enabled bracelets through which users can access their cabins, pay for and reserve services.

The ship will span 16 decks and boast a 5,479-passenger capacity. It is due to launch in April next year, with itineraries being announced next month.
