I can not even forget the big day of 5th November 2016, when the world’s largest cruise ship in the world, Harmony of the Seas met with the sisters of Allure of the Seas and Oasis of the Seas in Miami.
The small sisters came together to welcomed the big sister before arrinving in harbor celebrating the U.S arrivel of Harmony of the Seas to her new permament homeport which is Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale.
I was on Harmony, coming from Barcelona, after 11 days of crossing it was time to feel the rays of the sun from Miami. We prepared from the morning, all the Spa team, at 7.00 in the morning took a mouth of fresh air on helideck. I felt, the air was different from Europe, much warmer and dry in the morning. Everyone back to work for the moment.

Around 14.00, the meeting of the sisters arrived. All passengers, all crew members went out, on decks 16, 17 at the big event. I did not really have space to walk from one place to another because the deck was full of the crowd. And, in order for the atmosphere to be even more exciting, arrived the helicopter that walked around the vessels to make thousands of pictures and video clips.
Maybe you do not understand why I said sisters. Because…. Oasis of the Seas being the first, the next Allure of the Seas and the Harmony of the Seas being the youngest but the bigger as capacity and leight, are part of the same class, the Oasis class ship. Which means that they have the same construction structure both inside and outside, the same design only differs slightly in capacity of guets and crew members. One thing to mention is that they are the only who have the aqua theater with aqua show, an acrobatic show with water, the name being Fine Lines.
I want to make myself more understandable of what I have said above about the ship as “she/her”. Is called as beeing a person because it is a great machine that transports thousands of souls through the sea and the oceans.
