BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Excitement and anticipation are high at Port Canaveral as the port prepares to welcome two new homeported ships.
On Monday, May 6, Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas, the second largest cruise ship in the world, and Mariner of the Seas, fresh from a multi-million dollar upgrade, will set sail from Port Canaveral.
The Oasis Class Harmony of the Seas will sail from Port Canaveral, offering 7-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries.
The Harmony of the Seas offers innovations such as the tallest slide at sea, the Ultimate Abyss as well as the Perfect Storm water slides and Splashaway Bay, a children’s water park.
The ship hosts 6,687 passengers in 2,747 cabins with a crew of 2,100.
Mariner of the Seas is one of five Voyager-class cruise ships of Royal Caribbean and can accommodate 4,252 passengers. Built in 2003, Mariner of the Seas was refurbished in 2018 at a cost $120 million.
Port Canaveral officials are planning a celebration Monday, May 6 from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Jetty Park to “wave-out” the ships as they set sail.
