The Royal Caribbean cruise planning team have been kind to European and Mediterranean explorers in recent years, with a number of high profile ships spending their maiden seasons on the seas of Europe.
Quantum of the Seas undertook her maiden voyage from Southampton, before sister ship, Anthem of the Seas, spent her first season cruising out of the south coast port city. And now, Harmony of the Seas will kick off her sea-faring career cruising out of Barcelona, completing a selection of wonderful itineraries around the Med.
The Catalan city provides an exceptional backdrop, befitting of the world’s most jaw-dropping cruise vessel. A charismatic blend of traditional street culture, unique architecture and soaring temperatures have secured Barcelona’s position in the top ten most popular European city break destinations.
Whether you want to relax on the beach, explore Antoni Gaudí’s awe-inspiring architectural masterpieces or visit the historic Camp Nou; Barcelona provides a wonderful holiday setting for all ages and tastes.
It is especially kind to epicures and those who love a tipple or two. The traditional Barcelona culture perfectly accommodates slow, lazy days treading the winding streets from bar to bar indulging in a glass of the city’s wonderful red wine and incredible tapas selection. Just make sure you don’t overdo it in Harmony’s buffet room, so you’ve got space to enjoy Barcelona’s culinary delights.
From Barcelona, Harmony of the Seas will explore many of the Mediterranean’s greatest treasures throughout Spain, Italy and France. Incredible destinations such as Florence, Rome, Palma de Mallorca, Naples and the Provence region of France gives Harmony guests the chance to explore some of Europe’s best-loved and most historically significant cities, towns and rural routes.
Making the most of the Med’s abundant summer sun, the May to October season is ripe for sun-worshippers looking to top up the tan whilst enjoying limitless on-board activities and stunning Mediterranean adventures.
Harmony of the Seas will wave goodbye to Barcelona in October of this year, when she relocates to Port Everglades in Florida, where she will complete itineraries around the Caribbean. One last fling takes place in the form of the Spain to Florida repositioning cruise, taking in Palma de Mallorca and Malaga along the way.
