Year 2016

Royal Caribbean International launches world’s largest cruise ship Harmony of the Seas, featuring The Ultimate Abyss. Beginning on Deck 16 and ending on Deck 6, it’s a nine-deck drop (in a nod to the superstitious, there is no Deck 13 on Harmony). That makes it by far the tallest slide at sea. Filled with LED lights and graffiti artwork designed to create a starry night and twister effect, and spinning around on itself several times, it’s a first-of-its-kind for Royal Caribbean and the cruise industry.
