Delivery ceremony of the Harmony of the Seas at the STX Les Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France, May 12, 2016.
Royal Caribbean this week celebrated the delivery of Harmony of the Seas, which at 227,000 gross tons is the largest cruise ship ever constructed.
The ship was delivered Thursday following 32 months of construction at the STX France shipyard in Saint Nazaire, France.
Costing more than a $1 billion, Harmony of the Seas is the 25th ship in the Royal Caribbean fleet and third Oasis-class ship.
The ship will spend it inaugural season sailing the Mediterranean from Barcelona, Spain before heading to her homeport of Port Everglades, Florida in November where it will offer regular seven-night sailings to the eastern and western Caribbean.
The ship has capacity to carry 5,479 guests in 2,747 staterooms, and is home to 2,100 crew.
Update: Following Thursday’s delivery ceremony, Harmony of the Seas departed the STX France shipyard on Sunday to great fanfare.
