The world’s three biggest cruise ships, Royal Caribbean International’s Oasis-class ships Oasis of the Seas, Allure of the Seas and the new Harmony of the Seas, met at see for the first and possibly only time on Friday off the coast of Florida.

The meet-up was organized to mark the arrival of Harmony of the Seas at its new homeport of Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The newest and youngest of the three ships, Harmony of the Seas officially claimed the title of world’s largest cruise ship after beating her two Oasis-class sisters by just foot in length and nearly 1,700 gross registered tons. Harmony of the Seas measures 1,188 feet in length, encompasses 226,963 gross registered tons, and carries 5,497 double occupancy guests in 2,747 staterooms. The ship was delivered in May by STX Les Chantiers de l’ Atlantique shipyard, part of STX France, and spent her inaugural season in the Mediterranean sailing from Barcelona, Spain.

Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas are also homeported on the U.S. east coast in Port Canaveral and Port Everglades, respectively.
