Harmony of the Seas, Royal Carribean’s third Oasis class cruise ship, is set to launch in April 2016.
Harmony of the Seas will span 16 decks, encompass 227,000 gross registered tons, carry 5,479 guests at double occupancy, and feature 2,747 staterooms.
Guests can test their mettle on the ship’s three multi-story waterslides, all of which twist and turn over Central Park 10 decks below. One of the slides also will feature a champagne bowl that swirls guests around as they make their approach to the end of the ride.
The Oasis class (formerly known as Project Genesis) is a class of Royal Caribbean International cruise ships that are the world’s largest passenger ships.
The first two ships in the class, Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, were delivered in 2009 and 2010 by STX Europe Turku Shipyard, Finland.
