|The list of superlative to describe HARMONY OF THE SEAS is endless. Her size, her complexity, the innovations are as many sources of pride to STX France workers but also to people of the city and all the area. 362 m in length, 66 m in width, 60,000 tons of steel, 4,000 km of cables, 100,000 lightings, 500 tons of paint, 2,000 sqm of cold rooms… All the figures do the talking for this giant due for delivery by spring 2016.|

|FEBRUARY 14th, 2013 – THE PROJECT IS OFFICIALLY LA|
|After 10 years away, RCCL is back to Saint-Nazaire yard. On that occasion, RCCL and STX’s dedicated teams met each-others before starting a new collaboration. It was also the occasion to Richard Fain, Chairman and CEO of RCCL, to remind his 15 years of common history with the French yard before, stating as a conclusion : “I would like this coming ship to bear this undefined identity which was part of the previous ships built by the yard, which is also known as the French Touch”. |
