The biggest cruise ships in the world are getting even bigger next year, and Royal Caribbean has given her a name, "Harmony of the Seas". Royal Caribbean's new Oasis-class ship will be just that much bigger than its two sister ships.

The Harmony of the Seas will be larger than the line's two other Oasis-class ships, the "Oasis of the Seas" and "Allure of the Seas", which both sail out of Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale. Harmony will be 227,000 gross registered tons, which is 1,718 tons larger than the two earlier vessels. The line says the ship will hold 5,479 passengers at double occupancy in 2,747 staterooms, which is 41 more staterooms than either older ship.

Harmony of the Seas will have unique three multistory watersides, that are not found on previous Oasis-class ships. One of the three slides will boast a Champagne bowl feature. The slides are located in the forward area of the ship, 10 decks above Central Park open area. Young-at-heart passengers can take a spin on Harmony’s handcrafted carousel together with kids or enjoy the new classic games arcade on the Boardwalk neighborhood. There, parents can relax at the Starbucks cafe, and children can meet new friends at the new climbing play area. It will also feature similar to Central Park, which has real trees and grass in the middle of the ship.

Currently under construction at the STX France shipyards in Saint Nazaire, France, just where the 16-deck vessel will debut in April 2016. Harmony of the Seas will let passengers use Wow wrist bands for purchases and cabin access, instead of key cards. The ship will offer a Wonderland specialty restaurant, and ultra-high-speed Internet provided by O3b satellite network. As far as accommodations, virtual balconies will be installed in inside staterooms offering an ocean view of sorts, while single cruisers will have studio options. More exclusive areas including a private lounge, sun deck, more robot bartenders, the Bionic Bar, and their own restaurant called Coastal Kitchen. The line announced some specialty restaurants aboard including Izumi Hibachi & Sushi and Sabor Modern Mexican as well as Wonderland Imaginative Cuisine, a new concept that promises a culinary adventure for the senses in a whimsical setting.
