Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas cruise ship has had a very special visitor – none other than pop sensation Gary Barlow!
The cruise ship was home to Gary and screenwriter, Tim Firth, for a seven-day stay while they carried out research for a new musical. This comes just weeks after the launch of the ‘The Band’ musical, featuring the music of Take That, which launched in September this year.
Just back from 7 days at sea on this beauty. Tim Firth and I were doing research for a new musical we’re writing estimated to be on stage by 2021. Thank you to @royalcaribbean for all they’re help and support. We got to see how the whole ship runs 🚢 making music at sea is new one for me ! Wow ! 😎😎😎😎
The two reported that this new musical will hit the stage in 2021, with Gary saying, ‘making music at sea is new’ for him. The crew showed the pair how the whole ship runs, offering VIP access to the gears and cogs which really make Royal Caribbean special.
The itinerary departed on the 30th September, featuring visits to Florida, Hispaniola, Jamaica and Mexico – each of which are inspiring locations to stir musical creativity.
Harmony of the Seas
As 2016’s ‘Largest Cruise Ship in the World’, Harmony of the Seas is bold and beautiful. Boasting restaurants featuring Alice in Wonderland themes and Jamie Oliver’s first-class cooking know-how, the ship has wowed guests since its debut.
Spellbinding activities include outdoor movie nights, the 40-foot surf simulator FlowRider and the tallest slide at sea – the Ultimate Abyss. It is no wonder Mr Barlow chose this ship for his time at sea!
