Harmony on the Sea!





It is like a floating city. The world’s biggest cruise ship Harmony of the Seas set sail on its maiden voyage to the UK from France recently. The Euro 1-billion, 16-deck ship is bigger than the Eiffel Tower and holds the record for being the widest cruise ship ever built; boasting a 6,360-passenger capacity. It’s been compared to a floating city with more than 2,500 state-rooms , 20 dinning venues, 23 swimming pools and a park with more than 10,000 plants and 50 trees. It’s a dream ship!
