New Fun Family Offerings on Harmony of the Seas
Arriving in May 2016, Harmony of the Seas will be Royal Caribbean’s largest cruise ship and third installment in the line’s Oasis class of vessels. This larger-than-life ship will boast the incredible facilities pioneered by its sisters, Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, as well as a host of innovative new experiences and family-friendly amenities. It’s nothing short of spectacular, so we’ve rounded up just some of the cutting-edge experiences that cruisers can look forward to on board the Harmony of the Seas.
New Family Accommodations
The Harmony of the Seas will feature seven distinct ‘neighbourhoods’ that each revolve around a particular theme or iconic location. The upscale Central Park, Coney Island-inspired boardwalk and vibrant Kid’s Avenue are just three of the neighbourhoods that cater to the 5,400 plus passengers on board. Balcony staterooms that overlook the Central Park and Boardwalk areas are sure to be in high demand thanks to the exciting atmosphere brimming outside, but in November they will also be upgraded to accommodate families vacationing together. The upgrade will see the balcony views be enhanced with amenities that reflect the neighbourhood’s unique vibe. For example, those staying in the Boardwalk staterooms will enjoy lunch or dinner at the ship’s trendy diner, Johnny Rockets. The old-fashioned burger and fries are sure to be a hit with the kids, as will some private time on the ship’s rock-climbing wall.

The DreamWorks Animation Experience
Joining you on board the Harmony of the Seas will be some famous guests from DreamWorks Animation’s best movies. Po from Kung Fu Panda; Alex the Lion, Gloria the Hippo, King Julien and the Penguins from Madagascar; and Shrek, Fiona and Puss in Boots from Shrek will all make an appearance and participate in exciting events and activities. Children (and big kids!) will enjoy meet and greet experiences, photo opportunities, and dining with their favourite character at a special breakfast in the main dining room. Guests can also enjoy viewing all of the DreamWorks Animation films in the ship’s 3D theatre and on a dedicated TV channel available in each stateroom. What’s more, any new feature films from DreamWorks will premiere on board the Harmony of the Seas the same day that it does on theaters, and you’re guaranteed a spot on opening weekend!
The Adventure Ocean Youth Program
The Royal Caribbean Adventure Ocean Youth Program is an award-winning facility on the Harmony of the Seas that will host events and activities inspired by DreamWorks films. Kids between the ages of 3 and 11 will love hanging out with other junior cruisers and participating in games, story time, dance parties and adventures. When at the Adventure Ocean Youth Program, children are divided into smaller age groups (Aquanauts, Explorers and Voyagers) so you can enjoy the cruising lifestyle with the knowledge that your kids are enjoying themselves and having age-appropriate fun. The Harmony of the Seas will also offer a new black-light puppet show developed by Tony® award-nominated actors and producers called Away We Go! Inspired by the popular YouTube channel, the Muffalo Potato program will then round up the children’s offering on board.
After its debut, the Harmony of the Seas will first travel around Northern Europe before heading over to Barcelona for a summer season in the Northern Hemisphere. In autumn, it will then dock in its homeport of Port Everglades.
