Port Canaveral has been selected to host two of the world’s newest and largest ships.
In an announcement made by Royal Caribbean International, Oasis Class Harmony of the Seas will sail from Port Canaveral beginning May 2019, offering seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries.
And Voyager Class Mariner of the Seas returns to Port Canaveral with three- and four-night itineraries to The Bahamas.
Harmony of the Seas will be relocated to Port Canaveral from Port Everglades beginning in May 2019. Harmony is currently the largest ship in the world and newest ship in the Royal Caribbean fleet and 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 will return to Port Canaveral following a $100 million upgrade. Mariner of the Seas, which has 1,557 cabins can host nearly 4,200 passengers with a crew of 1,181. It will replace Majesty of the Seas currently sailing from Port Canaveral with a passenger capacity of 2,744.
In announcing the new itineraries, Royal Caribbean said Oasis of the Seas will leave Port Canaveral in 2019 and will be redeployed to PortMiami.
