The world’s largest cruise ship capable of holding up to 6,000 passengers has started sea trail from France, weighing in at 227,000 tons and 124ft long than the Eiffel Tower is tall.
The ship, Harmony of the Seas, has been built at a cost of more than $1 billion and started its trial voyage last week from Saint-Nazaire in France.
It includes Broadway’s hit musical, Grease in the full-size theatre, a state-of the-art multimedia ice rink spectacular and high-flying acrobatics as part of its entertainment, according to Mail Online.
The ship also has 16 restaurants and cafes – including a Jamie’s Italian – boutique shopping on the Royal Promenade, and high-speed wi-fi in the staterooms. And for voyagers wanting a challenge, there’s the Escape Room where guests have to try to break out by solving a series of puzzles.
Vast and full of surprises, Harmony Of The Seas is like something from the imagination of Jules Verne.
According to reports, Royal Caribbean International is the owner of the ship which started work on the liner in September 2013.
The Harmony of the Seas is due to undergo another trial before the end of April before becoming fully operational in May. The first cruise of the ship is set to be around the Mediterranean from Southampton to Barcelona.
