Today’s ship photos show the Royal Caribbean cruise ship Harmony of the Seas, aka Oasis 3, under construction at the STX Les Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard site in Saint-Nazaire, France. These photos were taken June 17, 2015.

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.
