World’s largest cruise ship is launched in Southampton

Irish cruise sales set to soar as the world’s largest cruise ship is launched in Southampton

On Friday May 20th in Southampton, Royal Caribbean proudly launched the largest ship in the world Harmony of the Seas. Costing more than a $1billion, Harmony of the Seas is the 25th ship in the Royal Caribbean fleet and took two and a half years to build. Royal Caribbean International’s 18-deck ship has set new records for length (1,1187ft and over 4 times longer than the pitch at Croke Park), gross tonnage (227,000), width (215.5ft), passenger capacity (6,780) and staterooms (2,747).  With a crew of 2,100 from 77 countries, the floating city boasts seven 'neighbourhoods', a 10-storey slide that is the tallest at sea, 23 swimming pools, 20 dining venues, surf simulators, robot bartenders, a casino and climbing walls, 11,252 works of art and Central Park with 10,587 living plants and trees!  This latest venture by Royal Caribbean is just one more reason why over 40,000 Irish are choosing the cruise in 2016.  Irish cruise specialists e-Travel are currently offering packages for Harmony of the Seas from €1350pps for a 7 night Mediterranean cruise including flights and a special bonus of $100 per cabin on-board spend.

This has been a good year so far for Irish travel bookings and sales are up as much as 46% for some agents with many holidaymakers cruising the luxury end of the market. Irish cruise specialist says almost 58% of cruise sales are for four-star ships and 35% for five-star ships but the luxury cruise liners are fast becoming the preferred option for customers.  According to latest figures by leading Irish cruise specialist e-travel, 42% of Irish cruisers are now under 40.  This represents a 20% increase since 2014 and shows the rapidly changing profile of cruise passengers from Ireland. The average price paid in 2016 for a fly cruise package was €1476 versus €1383 in 2015 and stateroom sales breakdown to approximately 65% balconies, 28% inside and 7% ocean view. 

Harmony of the Seas will homeport in Barcelona, Spain and embark on the first of 34 seven-night sailings in the western Mediterranean on June 7, exploring some of Europe's most beautiful locations.  In November 2016, Harmony will arrive at her homeport of Port Everglades, Fort Lauderdale, FL., from where she will offer seven-night eastern and western Caribbean sailings. The newest member of the fleet will join sister-ships Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, sailing from Port Canaveral and Port Everglades respectively, on the east coast of Florida.
