Harmony will be the first cruise ship from Royal Caribbean that will debut with waterslides.  (Liberty of the Seas recently had waterslides added during a drydock.)  The ship will sail a season in the Mediterranean before heading to Fort Lauderdale to sail weeklong cruises to the Eastern and Western Caribbean from Port Everglades.
