Other features shown in Ms Edward’s video include a mini golf course, flowrider, zip line, boardwalk, carousel, basketball court, waterpark, waterslides, and a ‘Central Park’ through the middle of the upper decks. 

It also has a Starbucks, arcade, Johnny Rockets restaurant, enormous rock climbing walls and promenade including luxury stores such as Kate Spade.

The cruise ship also has 23 swimming pools, an art gallery with 11,000 works of art, an ice skating rink and casino. 

Ms Edwards’ video sent social media users into a frenzy. 

‘That’s a whole city in the middle of the ocean,’ commented one awestruck viewer. 

‘We don’t even need land anymore.’

‘My mind does not understand how this can stay afloat,’ wrote another. 

‘This would be amazing, but I am not ready to be on the next Titanic equivalent,’ remarked one dubious viewer.  

Many also shared their stories of cruising on the ship, saying it was one of the best experiences of their lives.

 ‘I went there in 2018 and it was awesome,’ wrote one happy customer.

‘This is the ship I went on vacation on. It was the best,’ wrote another. 

Ms Edwards works through Royal Caribbean Entertainment, which run the shows and productions on all the Royal Caribbean cruise ships. 

The shows include Broadway and West-End musicals, Las-Vegas style productions, bespoke shows including contemporary dancing and ballet as well as aqua and ice performances.

Most of her performances take place in either the 1,400-seat Royal theatre on the  third deck or on the outdoor Aqua Theater which includes a hydraulics-landen pool, a small trampoline floor and stadium seating. 

The Aqua Theatre on Harmony of the Seas offers shows including acrobatic dancing, aerial work, slack line and high wire stunts as well as tumbling and diving. 

Living on the ship full-time during the cruises, she has shared footage of her experience as a crew member, costumes for her shows as well as their living quarters. 

In separate TikTok videos, she took viewers on a tour of her shared room on the ship, a confined but comfy space with minimal storage and a small bathroom attached. 

The Harmony of the Sea is one of the newest additions to the Royal Caribbean Oasis Class fleet, being delivered to them in May 2016.  While her sister ship, Symphony of the Seas is larger, Harmony of the Seas is the longest cruise ship in the world at a whopping 1,187 ft and 18 decks high.      

The Harmony of the Seas is currently destined for Naples, travelling down the Italian coast. It is set to arrive on August 20.
