Video: World’s Largest Cruise Ships Meet at Sea

Cruise guests with Royal Caribbean International witnessed a spectacular event when the cruise line’s Oasis-class ships all sailed together for the first and possibly only time.

On November 4, the three largest cruise ships in the world – Oasis of the Seas, Allure of the Seas and Harmony of the Seas – came together to celebrate the arrival of Harmony of the Seas to its new permanent homeport at Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The event didn’t occur by happenstance. Itineraries and logistics were coordinated long before the ships met just outside of Florida. Harmony of the Seas was on its way to its new homeport, Oasis of the Seas was traveling to its new homeport at Port Canaveral and Allure of the Seas modified its itinerary for the history-making excursion.

“I couldn’t be more proud of the ‘Three Sisters’ and it is such an accomplishment for Royal Caribbean International to bring together the three largest cruise ships in the world,” said Mark Tamis, senior vice president, hotel operations of Royal Caribbean International in a video. “It really is historic for the entire cruise industry.”

The Size that Counts

Harmony of the Seas is the youngest of the three Oasis-class ships, and is also the largest cruise ship in the world. The ship carries 5,497 guests at double occupancy, weighs 226,963 gross tons and is 1,188 feet long.

Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas weigh 225,282 gross tons each. Both ships measure in at 1,187 feet, but Allure of the Seas is technically the second-largest ship in the world by two inches. Allure entered service in 2010 while Oasis began sailing in 2009.

Two more unnamed Oasis-class ships are in the works. The fourth ship will enter service in 2018, while the fifth will set sail in 2021.

Park West Gallery is proud to be aboard these megaships to introduce guests to the world of fine art. Learn more about cruising with Park West here.
