World’s Largest Cruise Ship Arrives in the Caribbean


The world’s largest cruise ship has arrived in the Caribbean.

Royal Caribbean’s new Harmony of the Seas megaship arrived Wednesday at the Port of Old San Juan.

The new megaship can carry almost 6,300 passengers (and 2,400 crew members).

Harmony will be making 24 trips to Puerto Rico between December and April 2018; Puerto Rico has been receiving mega ships since 2014 following the expansion of its Pier 3.

Puerto Rico is projecting a total of 1.7 million cruise passengers in 2017-18.
