There’s Finally Harmony in the World

Royal Caribbean took delivery of the 227,000-ton Harmony of the Seas from STX France today at Saint Nazaire (France), and Harmony officially became the largest cruise ship in the world.
The official handover came during a flag-changing ceremony in the ship’s AquaTheater, complete with tons of confetti. During the event, there was quite an extraordinary moment when all 2,100 crew members sat for a portrait along with Richard Fain (Chairman and CEO of RCCL) and Michael Bayley (President and CEO of RCI). That’s not likely to happen again. (Who was running the ship?)

The complete story appeared in the May 12 edition of Cruise News Daily.

The flag-changing signified the ship's handover.
