Harmony of the seas, the largest cruise ship in the world owned by Royal Caribbean, sets sail from the French shipyard in Saint-Nazaire to Southampton in England, right after 32 months of construction. Thousands of people arrived to witness the event. The entire ship is worth almost a $1bn or £700million and it took 2500 workers to finish the ship.
The ship will start its inaugural voyage on 22nd May from England. The 215.5ft wide cruise is the widest in the world and the length of the ship is 1188ft, which makes it longer than the Eiffel Tower in Paris. It has 18 decks where 16 are meant for passenger suites and staterooms. They can accommodate 5,479 guests at double occupancy.
The gigantic cruise ship is almost like a floating city in the middle of the sea with nearly 2,750 staterooms over 16 guest decks. They are boasting about the tallest water slide on ship (The Ultimate Abyss), which takes passengers from deck 16 to deck six. There is also a water-park, 23 swimming pools, an aquarium, floating Jacuzzis, 20 dining venues, a park, a casino, a climbing wall, rope slide, a mini-golf court, aqua theater, royal theater, two surf simulators and the coolest of all, robotic bartenders. Authorities also claimed that they are providing the passengers with the fastest internet on sea. Passengers are about to experience an enigma in the sea.
Harmony of the seas is officially going to set its sail in November, across Atlantic, between the Caribbean Islands and Florida, with a cruising speed of 22 Knots or 25mp.
