BARCELONA — Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas set sail from its new summer home in Barcelona yesterday, marking Royal Caribbean International’s return to Western Europe.
Harmony is joining Jewel of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas in the Med.
The Oasis Class ship – Royal Caribbean’s largest class of ship – embarked Aug. 15 with passengers on the first of a series of 7-night cruises around the Western Med. From August to October, Harmony will sail itineraries to Palma De Mallorca, Florence, Rome and Naples. Passengers can also choose to begin their vacation in Italy and sail roundtrip from Rome.
“We are delighted to welcome back another ship to our European lineup this summer with the return of the award-winning Harmony of the Seas. Harmony is an incredibly popular ship and one of the most revolutionary in our fleet, so families are in for a summer of adventure,” said Ben Bouldin, VP for EMEA, Royal Caribbean International.
Royal Caribbean requires all crew members and guests 18 years of age and older to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Children younger than the eligible age can sail with a negative test result and must follow other health and safety protocols.
