The ship is under construction for Royal Caribbean and is the third ship in the company’s Oasis-class. 

At 227,000 gross registered tons, Harmony of the Seas will be the biggest cruise ship ever built, beating out Oasis 1 and 2 – Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas – by about 1,700 tons. The ship will carry 5,479 guests at double occupancy, about 79 more than the first two.
