It is a real record that sails and comes from Helsinki, Finland. Displacing nearly 227,000 gross tons, the Harmony of the Seas is the largest passenger ship in the world, able to accommodate over 8880 passengers and crew. The vessel contains over 2,700 rooms spread out over multiple decks. To help transport its thousands of passengers, cruise ships are almost totally dependent on vertical transport solutions to get around. The most important thing is eliminate the need for a machine room. The Harmony of the seas features:

  • 28 “Minispace” elevators
  • 14 “Monospace”
  • 2 escalators
  • 3 easy-access platforms for impaired mobility passengers.

In addition to this record, now owned by its twin Allure and Oasis, Harmony, with its 16 innovation bridges, 7 on-board neighbourhoods has the revolutionary “Bionic Bar”: the first bar managed entirely by bartender-robot. Another new feature, present only on the new sister of the class, are the three multi-storey slides, with breathtaking curves and twists, which will offer a full speed descent from the highest bridge to Central Park.
