Cruising

The new Netflix film Like Father may be a heartwarming story about relationships, but it doubles as an incredible Royal Caribbean Harmony of the Seas ad. Starring Kristen Bell, Kelsey Grammer, Brett Gelman and Seth Rogan, Like Father follows a strained father-daughter relationship out on the high seas while showcasing the ship’s finest features.

If the long loving shots of Harmony of the Seas’ exterior don’t pull you in, the ship’s luxury design and offerings of equal measure might help.

Follow the cast on onboard adventures, including The Perfect Storm, surfing lessons on FlowRider and off-ship excursions.

Guests head for a hike to Jamaican waterfalls for a swim and zipline through Royal Caribbean International’s private island on Labadee, Haiti — the world’s longest overwater line.

Get an inside look at the ship while the cast moves through the Royal Promenade and is lifted to higher ground in the Rising Tide Bar. The film even goes so far as to represent the Royal Caribbean staff in an appealing light, with friendly service and guides throughout the vessel’s various offerings. Guests can easily book tours and excursions off ship while onboard.

While depicting a strained family relationship, the film is fun, funny and touching and really utilizes the space on the ship. With a unique perspective of the ship, watch as the cast and guests enjoy all the vessel has to offer. Get eyes on the various dining opportunities, an inside look at guest quarters and the various levels of pools and private cabanas.

With the help of a blended group of couples and relationships, check out fun group events and excursions mixed with nights of dancing, game show fun and karaoke competitions — if the film is your first glance at the ship, there seems to always be something to do for all ages and interests.

If you don’t have Netflix, your next best bet to see the film could be during one of the celebratory film-viewing opportunities onboard Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas, Symphony of the Seas, Oasis of the Seas and, film star, Harmony of the Seas.
