Experiencing Cutting-Edge Cruising Aboard Harmony of the Seas

With 18 decks and a capacity of a staggering 5,479 guests, Royal Caribbean’s new Harmony of the Seas is now the largest passenger cruise ship in the world. To give you an idea of just how big that is, the Titanic boasted 2,435 passengers. Of course, while size matters, so do the amenities; and on a recent preview trip aboard the new vessel, I found that the new Oasis-class cruise ship offers a host of fresh and innovative features that were impressive to say the least. Designed to surpass her sisters Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, the $1.35 billion mammoth was launched earlier this year with itineraries currently planned for all over the Caribbean.  

Harmony of the Seas offers some rather unique attractions, such as a completely-automated, dual bionic arm bartenders at the Bionic Bar, which is a delight to watch operate. You sit down at any of the computer stations at the bar, order a preset drink (or design your own creation), swipe your room key, and watch the robotic arms mix the drink in front of you. If you would rather get your buzz from adrenaline, check out the tallest slide at sea coined the "Ultimate Abyss," which features a creative light show as you plunge 10 stories down.
