(3:25 p.m. EST) — Like its Oasis-class fleet mates, Harmony of the Seas will feature the DreamWorks experience when it launches May 2016. Passengers will be able to hang with Po of “Kung Fu Panda”; Shrek, Fiona and Puss in Boots from “Shrek”; and Alex the Lion, Gloria the Hippo, King Julie and the Penguins from “Madagascar.”
Also announced for Harmony of the Seas is a new Adventure Ocean Theater show called Away We Go!, a black light puppet show for 3 to 11-year olds. Additionally, programming by “Muffalo Potato,” a YouTube show that teaches kids to draw anything using only letters and numbers, will be part of the ship’s kids’ programming.
In other Royal Caribbean news, the line will offer free food and drink to passengers who book Central Park and Boardwalk view cabins on all three Oasis-class ships (Oasis of the Seas, Allure of the Seas and Harmony of the Seas). Starting November 2016, cruisers with views of Central Park will enjoy lunch for two at Jamie’s Italian on Harmony of the Seas or Giovanni’s Table on Oasis and Allure of the Seas, a free bottle of wine upon arrival and special perks in the Casino Royale. Passengers in Boardwalk-view cabins will receive lunch or dinner for four at Johnny Rockets, a soda beverage package for two and a private session on the ships’ 38-foot tall rock climbing wall.
