"We are orchestrating a medley of new exciting concepts with the best Royal Caribbean innovations to strike the perfect chord for adventurous vacationers. That is why we are calling our third Oasis-class ship Harmony of the Seas," said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International.
New are three multi-story waterslides, all of which twist and turn over Central Park 10 decks below. One of the slides also will feature a champagne bowl that swirls guests around.
"The Oasis class ships continue to astound and delight both new and experienced cruisers. They shatter preconceived notions of what cruising can be and continue to stand in a category by themselves," said Richard D. Fain, Chairman and CEO, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. "With Harmony of the Seas, we are making the most exciting experience at sea even better."
Harmony of the Seas also will feature a new Bionic Bar on the Royal Promenade. Additionally, guests onboard Harmony of the Seas will enjoy RFID technology with Royal WOWBands that provide them access to their staterooms as well as make onboard purchases and reservations.
Like her sisters, Harmony also will feature a fast Internet connection at sea.
The Harmony of the Seas will make some stateroom categories even larger. Interior accommodations also will be outfitted with Royal Caribbean's exclusive Virtual Balconies which offer a view in every stateroom, while single travelers will have studio stateroom choices. Suite guests also will have exclusive new areas to enjoy, from a well-appointed suite lounge and a private suites-only restaurant called Coastal Kitchen to an exclusive full-service Suite Sun Zone sun deck.
Younger and young-at-heart guests can take a spin on the handcrafted carousel or enjoy a new classic games arcade on the ship's Boardwalk neighborhood. Parents can enjoy the newly relocated Starbucks cafe on the Boardwalk, and kids can meet new friends at a new climbing play area.
Royal Caribbean's Dynamic Dining will be aboard as well. New specialty restaurant concepts will provide even more variety for guests including Izumi Hibachi & Sushi, with a new teppanyaki menu, and the Sabor Modern Mexican restaurant.
The new Wonderland Imaginative Cuisine restaurant will be added, coming from the Quantum-class ships.
Itineraries for Ovation of the Seas and Harmony of the Seas will be announced this coming March.
