Does size really matter? Is bigger always best? We will let you be the judge as we explore one of the world’s largest cruise ships, Harmony of the Seas.
For those who love statistics, this Royal Caribbean ship has some impressive numbers. At 362-metres long, she is 50-metres taller than Sydney’s Centrepoint Tower. She has a wonderful green space too with enough trees and plants – over 10,000 – to fill a city park, and there’s a secret deck for AquaTheater entertainers (deck 4.5).
Even more impressive facts and figures of Harmony of the Seas …
- 362-metres (1,188-ft) from bow to stern (2.5 football fields long)
- 65-metres wide (2.3 times the size of a football field)
- 6,780 passengers
- 2,100 crew
- 2,759 staterooms
- 18 decks
- A 10-storey tall waterslide
With these sorts of numbers, this mega-liner is the size of a small town.
From Broadway hits like ‘Grease’ to live performances by talented musicians and comedians, the onboard entertainment will keep you tapping your feet and laughing all night long. When the curtains go up, the talent takes over on the ice and on the high-diving platforms of AquaTheatre. After the show, head next door for some Vegas-style fun in the casino or one of the many bars and entertainment areas.
This exclusive youth hang-out area has zones dedicated to tots, tweens and teens. Fully supervised by professional staff, each zone is packed with workshops, video games, themed activities and much more – the kids won’t want to leave! For parents looking to slip away for a romantic dinner, ask about the babysitting services.
On Royal Caribbean’s Oasis Class ships, you can choose from several categories of staterooms. Inside cabins enjoy a virtual balcony, a real-time view of the outside world projected on the wall.
Balcony cabins are available with a choice of water views, Central Park views, or inside Boardwalk views, and there is of course the standard ocean view rooms.
For the ultimate treat, step up to one of the three Royal Suite Class staterooms.
In Sea Class, you’ll enjoy luxurious bathroom amenities as well as exclusive access to Coastal Kitchen restaurant. In Sky Class suites, you’ll get a concierge who can assist with dining reservations, theatre seats and private sun deck space, and for the ultimate in luxury, Star Class passengers have a dedicated butler assigned for the duration of the journey among other perks.
With 15 dining options to choose from, including room service, you won’t have to worry about going hungry at any time of the day or night. Harmony of the Seas has a restaurant or menu to satisfy every craving from the classic steakhouse Chops Grille, to the fifties-style hamburger joint Johnny Rockets, Izumi Hibachi Sushi, Jamie’s Italian restaurant, American favourites at 150 Central Park and of course, the main dining room serving three-course meals.
For dining with a difference, be sure to book a table at Wonderland. The dishes may sound familiar, but we can guarantee, not all is what it seems with this one-of-a-kind menu! And sprinkle on the memories with a Cupcake Class where the whole family can join in.
From blissful massages at sea, to facials, wraps and even acupuncture, the onboard Vitality Spa will leave you energised, renewed, relaxed and rejuvenated. Sport a new hairdo at the salon, make your own day-spa, or take home a brilliant new smile with professional teeth whitening services.
Date night, girl’s night out, or a romantic interlude for two, there are numerous bars loaded with libations. From sipping cocktails by the pool, to the casual Schooner Bar, or the Diamond Club, reserved exclusively for Crown & Anchor Diamond Members, there is a cozy corner, a pulsating dance club, and everything in-between. And don’t miss the Bionic Bar where robotic bartenders will mix and shake your drink of choice. A truly futuristic experience.
