Royal Caribbean's record-breaking newest ship Harmony of the Seas is kicking off her first sailings this week, out of Barcelona - her home for the summer months.

On Sunday, June 12, the 16-deck-high Harmony begins a 5-month-long series of 7-night cruises from the city to Italy and France. The ship follows a one-time, 5-night sailing from Barcelona which began on Wednesday and several inaugural sailings out of Southampton, UK.

At 226,963 GT, Harmony of the Seas is a floating mega-resort with 3 main pool areas, water slide complex, adults-only solarium, ice skating rink, a pair of rock climbing walls and a mall-like indoor promenade with bars, eateries and shops.
