Proposed tax on cruise passengers and hotel stays has been quashed.
HARMONY OF THE SEAS, the biggest cruise ship in the world, will be in Palma on June 13 as part of its maiden voyage.
The cruise ship which is part of the Royal Caribbean’s Oasis Class will house 6,360 passengers and 2,100 crew members and includes a 1,400-seat theatre, a plant-filled park and a 10-storey water slide.
Other attractions are a giant climbing wall, a rope slide, mini golf, surf simulator, floating jacuzzis and a casino. Passengers will also be served by two robot barmen in the Bionic Bar.
The giant vessel is 66 metres wide and 362 metres long making it 50 metres longer than the height of the Eiffel Tower.
It will produce 20 per cent less carbon dioxide emissions than the two biggest ships in its class.
The ship’s home port for the summer season will be in Barcelona where it will offer passengers seven-day cruises with ports of call in Palma, Marseille, La Spezia, Civitavecchia and Naples.
