So, will you find Harmony too big for your vacation? That’s a matter of personal taste, but if you want to experience the most feature-rich, best reviewed, and most talked-about ship in history then this one’s for you.
In Perfect Harmony
Seven distinct neighborhoods span Harmony’s seventeen decks, each offering unique experiences with original ways to play. Stroll lush gardens in Central Park, ride a carousel on the Boardwalk, laugh with our comics in Entertainment Court, or slide into adventure at the Water Park. And try a few things you never imagined at sea: drop 9 stories in the Ultimate Abyss, fly our spine-tingling zip line, marvel at our high-diving show, enjoy a drink at The Rising Tide bar, or learn to surf on twin FlowRider surf simulators 150 feet above the ocean.
Cool Caribbean Islands
The sun never stops shining on our three gorgeous beaches. From gay-central Ft. Lauderdale, sail to the private island paradises of Labadee where pristine beaches, breathtaking scenery, and spectacular water activities await. Indulge in the remarkable aqua sports park, exciting mountain zip line, and secluded private cabanas. There’s even a roller coaster through the hills!
San Juan’s old town invites you to spend an afternoon exploring the fabled streets. Or venture further afield to Puerto Rico’s legendary beaches and natural wonders. The dual French and Dutch island of St. Maarten offers stunning pristine beaches and awesome duty-free shopping in the friendliest island in the Caribbean.
Hot Shows & Hotter Talent
Three main-stage venues and unique intimate spaces host the biggest gay performance festival ever created, starring our amazingly talented performers from our community and beyond. In the three-story theater you’ll find a dazzling full production of Broadway’s Grease!, Atlantis signature entertainers, and our original gay flying show.
And that’s just the beginning. Studio B presents a dazzling ice skating show along with our own musical acts. Thrill to the dive show in the Aqua Theater – a true marvel of acrobatics, high-diving, and visual spectacle set against the ocean’s night sky.
Atlantis presents the world’s best gay comics in the comedy club, a seemingly endless parade of drag queens in Dazzles, and the most original and talented cabaret performers in our community. All with a few surprises popping up along the way.
Electrifying Original Concerts
Only on Atlantis can you enjoy some of the world’s top DJ and musical stars in a magnificent outdoor concert setting. We’ve created an extraordinary new experience exclusive to Harmony where we present top musical acts in our outdoor arena for thousands of our guests. Superstar DJ Gareth Emery headlined in 2017 and wait until you see this year!
Spectacular and Outrageous Parties
Atlantis parties are legendary, and with five incredible venues, we truly create the most spectacular parties on land or sea. From our themed t-dances to never-ending night parties, there’s nothing like dancing outdoors under the ocean’s sky. And Harmony provides our best settings in Atlantis history for a party that defies imagination.
The sensational AquaTheater hosts the biggest afternoon t-dances (and a few special events) in our most spectacular venue yet, surrounded by huge LED screens, world-class sound, soaring views from the balconies and rock walls, and ocean views all around.
At night, we’ll transform the massive open-air Solarium into the most technically advanced nightclub you’ve ever seen, with a wrap-around video wall, awesome lasers and dazzling lighting to illuminate the night sky. With two stories of dancing, there’s never been a bigger or better venue to host our thrilling events.
And there’s still more, including special events in the Promenade and progressive after-hours parties in Studio B. There’s alternative music in The Attic, and retro-classics in the art-deco themed Dazzles. With the world’s bigger ship, you can be sure that Harmony will host the biggest parties in Atlantis history!
Dining for Friends. And Friendly Dining.
From quick bites between events to leisurely multi-course meals with friends, Harmony offers more tantalizing dining choices than any ship we’ve ever sailed. The elaborate three-story main restaurant invites you to enjoy freshly prepared seasonal cuisine. Grab a chair and a salad in Central Park at the Park Café. Or sit down over sushi at Izumi. There’s always a fresh pizza waiting for you at Sorrento’s and Café Promenade never stops serving delicious sandwiches and other treats.
And for a something special, start at the top with a truly magical meal at Wonderland, located 13 decks above sea level. Dig into Michelin-starred chef Michael Schwartz’ farm-to-ship cuisine at Park 150. Or gather some friends to savor Jamie’s Italian. Indulge in a perfect steak at Chops, or the wonders of Sabor Modern Mexican on the Boardwalk.
Of course, there’s never a dress code or assigned seating on Atlantis so you’ll always feel comfortable in our casual, friendly dining environment
New Ways to Play
Days at sea offer endless options, starting with an entire deck dedicated to sports and activities. Join a game of water polo in the sports pool, climb one of the two challenging rock walls, soar through the air on the zip line, or play volleyball on the full-size court. There’s even ice skating! Or dare yourself to try the terrifying Ultimate Abyss, or check out our FlowRider surf simulators 150 feet above the ocean!
Staying active is easy in the first-rate, fully equipped gym, featuring the latest in cardio and weight-training equipment. And runners will love the wrap-around ocean view track!
A Few Answers to Frequently Asked Questions about Harmony
With so many guests, how will shows be handled?
The main theater holds around 1500 guests and we’ll offer 3 performances of our most popular shows to accommodate everyone. At any given time, multiple shows are offered in the Main Theater, Studio B, and the AquaTheater. To help with planning, Harmony has a ticketing system that lets you reserve your space effortlessly. You also will have the option of standing by for any show. It’s a great system that has worked well in past years, letting everyone see every show they wanted.
What will the parties be like?
With more venues than Atlantis has ever had, our parties will be more diverse, more spectacular, and more fun than any other cruise – and all-new for 2018. We’re creating a virtual festival of music with something for every taste and style. What makes Harmony special is that we have six different and unique places to throw a party so no night is ever the same.
We’re taking the seats out of the massive Aqua Theater to create a true amphitheater space that’s perfect for our massive T-dances. Our legendary all-night parties will be either in the Solarium, Aqua Theater, and maybe poolside. Each venue will be filled with Atlantis’ signature spectacular lighting, dazzling lasers, blazing video, heroic sound, and some never-before-seen special effects.
The Solarium at the front of the ship is one of the most perfect spaces for a party we’ve ever seen with an all-new design for 2018. This glass walled open-air space allows us the magic of an outdoor party with some clever wind and rain protection thanks to an open-air ribbon of glass that runs over the top of the venue. Our all-new massive lighting, video, and laser system will be the largest in Atlantis history, designed to dazzle you in ways you never imagined.
Indoors, we’ll offer spectacular late-night parties and special events in both Studio B and The Attic, as well as some fun and original events in Dazzles.
Will Atlantis offer an outdoor concert again?
We set a new standard for gay entertainment in 2017 with the first-ever electronic music concert at sea featuring superstar DJ Gareth Emery. You can bet we’ll create something even bigger and better for 2018!
We want to be with our friends. Can you fit everyone into one space?
Absolutely! We can fit everyone that wants to come to all events in the AquaTheater, Solarium, Royal Promenade, and maybe even poolside. More on that later.
How can I find my friends on such a big ship?
Thanks to some new technology, it’s easier than ever to find friends onboard using the new Royal IQ app. You can chat, text, and even call your friends from your own mobile phone. And with VOOM internet onboard, there’s always broadband speed internet available at reasonable prices.
We heard that the ship was “too big.” Is that a problem?
Well, this is a matter of personal taste and as you know everybody (especially in our community) has their own interpretation of “big”. The Harmony is obviously the largest ship ever created, but has no shortage of wonderful, accessible, and intimate spaces. As with all things, it’s what you make of it but we feel that the size of the ship gives us more options in all areas from sports to dining, from entertainment to room choices. Ultimately, it’s up to you, but we think most people would rather have more options on their vacation.
We are creating a new set of social activities and daytime entertainment onboard that will bring people together a bit more to foster a greater sense of community and connection.
Will there be a Headliner?
Atlantis has always featured big name entertainers on our cruises and will continue the tradition in 2018 on the Harmony. However, be realistic – a concert act that tours 20,000 seat arenas won’t fit on a cruise ship (and is not in our budget). We’re planning to present several recognizable names on Harmony, along with some of our Signature Atlantis entertainers.
Remember there’s also a full Broadway production of Grease, an incredible high-diving show in AquaTheater, and a remarkable original new production show called Columbus – the largest production show ever created on a ship.
Why would I want a Central Park View?
Well, Central Park is one of the most beautiful spaces ever created on a ship with lush landscaping and subtle lighting at night. Depending on your taste, a view into the park is a welcome, mostly wind-free way to truly enjoy a balcony view at night. There’s always something to see, versus looking out into the darkness in the Ocean. Ultimately, it’s personal taste, but these rooms continue to be fantastically popular and a great value.
Is the Boardwalk Noisy?
Once you close your stateroom door, you truly cannot hear the Boardwalk. We tested this out in a variety of ways and had no noise complaints in past years onboard Allure.
