Royal Caribbean's Three Sisters Meet in Florida
Royal Caribbean International’s Oasis-class ships, Oasis of the Seas, Allure of the Seas and the new Harmony of the Seas, greeting each other at sea for the first and possibly only time on Friday.
The vessels came together to celebrate the U.S. arrival of Harmony of the Seas on the eve of the ship’s debut in her new permanent homeport of Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The newest and youngest of the three ships, Harmony of the Seas, officially claimed the title of world’s largest cruise ship, beating her sisters by a mere foot in length and nearly 1,700 gross registered tons.
The ship features many new dining and entertainment experiences and the latest technology, including VOOM, the fastest internet at sea.
Each vessel has over 2,700 state rooms and can berth between 6,700 and 7,148 passengers.
A fourth, as-yet unnamed, Oasis-class ship is currently under construction at STX Saint-Nazaire. It is due to sail in 2018.
