World’s Biggest Cruise Ship Harmony of the Seas to make Inaugural Call on Wednesday

The fourth new cruise vessel on its inaugural call for the month of November will be Harmony of the Seas, the newest addition to Royal Caribbean’s award-winning Oasis Class fleet which will dock today.

Port St. Maarten will be welcoming the new vessel to its shores on Wednesday with the traditional plaque exchange and words of welcome. There will also be six cruise ships in port on Wednesday, the first of two sixship days in November. The next one will be on November 30. Port St. Maarten Management is looking forward to the visit as it once again is testimony to the strategic agreements that the port secured with cruise lines that allows the destination to receive these colossal vessels which ensures a long-term sustainable future for the country. The new cruise ship was built over a 32-month period at the STX France shipyard. Considered the largest and most innovative cruise vessel afloat, costs more than US$1 billion to construct and is the 25th ship in the Royal Caribbean fleet.

In November 2016, Harmony arrived at her homeport of Port Everglades, Fort Lauderdale, FL., from where she will offer seven-night eastern and western Caribbean sailings. The newest member of the fleet will join sister-ships Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, sailing from Port Canaveral and Port Everglades respectively, on the east coast of Florida. The world's biggest ship with the world's best features just got even better.
