Some of the world’s greatest cruise liners will be paying Malaga a visit for the first time this year. Five recently constructed luxury ships are scheduled to arrive in the Port, including the biggest liner in the world, Royal Caribbean’s ‘Harmony of the Seas’, due on 3 June.
At present the ‘Harmony of the Seas’ is still at the STX shipyards in Saint-Nazaire, France, and is expected to start sailing in May. In fact, the visit to the capital of the Costa del Sol will be one of the first stopovers on this gigantic ship’s inaugural voyage.
The newest member of the Oasis class will spend its first season carrying passengers on seven-night cruises of the Mediterranean from Barclona, and in November it will go on to Fort Lauderdale and cruise the Caribbean during the winter.
This ship will have seven ‘neighbourhoods’, 20 restaurants and 2,394 crew. Future passengers of the ‘Harmony of the Seas’ will be able to enjoy many exceptional facilities including three water slides, a Bionic Bar with robot waiters, which was also one of the novelties on the ‘Quantum of the Seas’, and Voom, the high-speed Internet connection which will enable passengers to share their holidays and experiences instantly on social networking sites.
The ‘Harmony of the Seas’ has 16 decks, a total weight of 227,000 tons, and capacity for 5,479 passengers in double staterooms and 2,747 cabins.
