On May 22, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line broke a world record when it put Harmony of the Seas into the water. Harmony is the world’s largest ever cruise ship, a mammoth floating city designed to carry passengers across the world in comfort. Of course, Harmony of the Seas was designed to do more than just “be large.” RCCL’s new titanic flagship is also a new adventure for the company itself.
In its never-ending quest to get more customers, RCCL has designed its newest ship with the whole family in mind. While you might be of the mindset that cruises are just for old people and couples (except for the rare Disney cruise), RCCL has endeavored to turn Harmony of the Seas into a treat for the whole family.
That new mindset begins with the Presidential Family Suite. Where most cruise ships limit their cabin space to two to four people, according to the LA Times, “at 1,142 square feet, the [Presidential Family Suite sleeps] up to 14 people and includes two master bedrooms, two master baths (with tubs), two other bedrooms, two more baths, a dining room and a 476-square-foot balcony with a whirlpool, dining area and bar.”
While it’s intended for families, the expanded cabins are also great for larger groups hoping to stay together. Outside the cabin, the Harmony of the Seas is another in a line of expanded options from the travel company that’s designed to open their doors to as many people as possible.
