When Royal Caribbean's newest cruise ship, Harmony of the Seas, debuts in the UK in May 2016, she will offer more than 30 different onboard sports and games activities.

To show off this fact, 20 Royal Caribbean employees spent seven hours layout out 3,415 pieces of equipment that will be needed for all the activities onboard Harmony of the Seas.

Royal Caribbean spread the gear across 85m of Boscombe Beach in Dorset, UK.

The gear includes

  • 900 ball pit balls
  • 192 golf balls
  • 144 badminton shuttlecocks
  • 80 ping pong balls
  • 31 surfboards
  • 30 basketballs
  • 16 ice hockey sticks
  • 16 pool cues
  • 144 pool balls
  • 8 table tennis tables

“There aren’t many holidays where families can visit multiple destinations, try their hand at ice skating, body boarding, a zip wire and learn how to Blongoball all in one trip,” said Stuart Leven, managing director UK and Ireland at Royal Caribbean. “Harmony of the Seas offers holidaymakers the opportunity to explore amazing destinations and enjoy a world of new experiences, with an activity to cater for every age and every taste.”

Harmony of the Seas is under construction at STX France and will be the third Oasis class cruise ship in the fleet.
