Royal Caribbean has been releasing photo updates of the ship every few weeks and the latest photos can be found below.  Harmony of the Seas is the 3rd Oasis class ship built by the cruise line after the enormous popularity of the first two ships, Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas.  A 4th, yet still unnamed Oasis class ship, is currently under construction and is scheduled to be completed in 2018.  There have been rumors of a 5th Oasis class ship but none of those rumors can be confirmed at this time.

Harmony of the Seas will feature the tallest slide (dry slide, not a water slide) at sea.  The Ultimate Abyss will be a ten story slide at the aft of the ship that will drop more than 100 feet to the Boardwalk below. Royal Caribbean said that the slide will be the world’s biggest, world’s best, and the world’s most exciting slide at sea.

  1. Another huge cruise ship? When will enough be enough? I worked with RCCL for 7 years…worked on the Oasis. Yes, they’re big. Yes, it’s strange to have a park floating on an ocean. It’s not reality, and actually, it doesn’t compare to reality. Furthermore, I saw how RCCL treated their employees – taking away benefits, lowering wages, firing those who asked for raises, firing rape victims or workers who suffered health complications from the terrible food they serve the crew. And there’s ever more control over how often employees can go into port. Many don’t see the light of day more than a couple of hours each week. Company propaganda is pushed on employees, and fears about the economy in the outside world fanned at every turn. Since I left 3 or 4 years ago, reliable friends have told me it’s gotten much worse. I hope RCCL has overextended themselves in their shameless greed, and goes bankrupt.
