17 Greg S. { 05.14.15 at 4:38 pm }

Will June 12, 2016 be the first sailing of the Harmony of the Seas ? If so, will that be considered her maiden voyage? And what can the cruisers expect special on her maiden voyage?

18 Robert W-The Cruise Web { 05.15.15 at 12:11 pm }

Hey Greg S.
I’m glad you are excited about Harmony of the Seas. June 12th will be her first sailing. Royal Caribbean has not announced any special plans for her maiden voyage, but I know it will be a big celebration for such a big ship. Are you looking to be a part of the Harmony of the Seas’ maiden voyage? Send me an email or give me a call so we can get you on board!

19 Annemarie { 07.05.15 at 4:32 am }

Has the maiden voyage been announced yet? Is it Southampton to Barcelona on 29 May 2016?!?

20 The Cruise Web Team { 07.06.15 at 8:06 am }

Yes, her maiden voyage will be a 7-night cruise from Southampton to Barcelona departing on May 29, 2016.

21 Cheryl { 09.18.15 at 10:14 am }

There is an inaugeral cruise on Harmony out of Ft. Lauderdale for 3 nights on Nov. 5, 2016. Will this be a special cruise as it is the first launch out the the U.S. and it is very pricey. Assuming formal night type dinners everynight like a holiday or New Year Years Eve cruise?

22 Viviane - The Cruise Web { 09.18.15 at 1:47 pm }

Hi Cheryl,

Yes, Inaugural sailings will be more costly than other sail dates, but it is special to be one of the first passengers on this beautiful, new ship.

No, there will not be “Formal” nights every night. Even during holiday sailings they do not have “Formal” nights every night of the sailing.

I would be happy to help you find a great cabin on this sailing. Please call me at 1-800-377-9383 ext 358, so we can discuss your options.

– Viviane T.

23 Cheryl { 09.18.15 at 3:29 pm }

I have been on holiday cruises and they had “formal night type” dinners. Because of the festive holiday season and higher priced cruise rate the food was beefed up. We ate food everynight that was mostly served on formal nights. On Harmony’s first inaugeral voyage out of the U.S. was wondering if the MDR food options would also be “beefed up” just like a holiday cruise. Just wondering!

24 Viviane - The Cruise Web { 09.21.15 at 10:08 am }

Hi Cheryl,

Yes, there will probably be upgraded menus on the Inaugural cruise for the Special formal nights, otherwise we expect the same high standard they normally serve on a sailing. I expect that you will enjoy great dining experiences, whether in the formal dining room, or the more casual buffet atmosphere. The ship itself will offer you an awesome experience.

Please call me so we can discuss all your cruise needs. I can be reached at 1-800-377-9383 ext 358.


25 Vanessa { 02.17.16 at 10:13 pm }

Does anyone know when the inaugural cruise will be for Harmony

26 The Cruise Web Team { 02.18.16 at 9:12 am }

Hi Vanessa,

The inaugural voyage for Harmony of the Seas departs on May 22, 2016:

To join the inaugural or learn more about the ship, please give us a call at 1-800-377-9383.

30 Ivana Jay { 04.26.16 at 4:28 pm }

When will Harmony of The Seas be out to the public ( I know it comes out in April but do you know what date).

31 The Cruise Web Team { 04.26.16 at 4:34 pm }


Thanks for posting. Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas won’t actually sail until May 22, 2016 when she departs on a 4-night getaway out of Southampton, England. This is a little later than originally expected, but we are confident that she’ll be worth the wait!

32 Johan { 05.10.16 at 2:56 am }


Cruising with Harmony of the Seas June 12 from Barcelona.
Anyone know some detailed cruise plans? Number of formal dinners? Which days for formal dinners?

Best regards,

33 The Cruise Web Team { 05.10.16 at 7:33 am }

Ahoi Johan,

For a 7-night cruise, Royal Caribbean usually features two formal nights. The first formal dinner is typically on the second night, and the second formal dinner can vary between the fifth or sixth nights of your cruise.

We hope you have a great time on the new ship! Give us a call at 240-487-0155 if you have any other questions.

34 Lorna { 05.18.16 at 8:50 am }

I am traveling on harmony of the seas for 3 nights leaving 26th May. Is there a formal night on this cruise?
Many thanks

35 The Cruise Web Team { 05.18.16 at 9:17 am }

Hi Lorna,

Yes, your formal night will most likely be on Day 2, per Royal Caribbean’s policy. You’ll have a full schedule of events once onboard, but you should plan for one formal night on May 27th.

Please give us a call at 240-487-0155 for help planning future cruises. We’d love to hear about your experience aboard the Harmony of the Seas!

36 Jenny Le { 06.12.16 at 8:17 pm }

Hi I’m so excited about the Harmony of the Seas but I couldn’t find any information about her itinerary departing from Sydney.

37 Rosalind Smith - The Cruise Web { 06.13.16 at 4:28 pm }

Hi Jenny,

We are very excited about the Harmony of the Seas as well. She has received rave reviews, thus far.

At this time, the Harmony of the Seas is completing her inaugural season in the Mediterranean until October. She will be positioned in south Florda to sail the Caribbean through 2018.

We will be sure to keep you posted on her scheduled beyond the Caribbean Islands!
