The world's biggest cruise ship has docked at Puerto Rico for the first time, as the US territory reports a boost in tourism amid an economic crisis. Royal Caribbean's Harmony of the Seas arrived on Wednesday in the historic district of the capital of San Juan. The ship can carry up to 6,700 passengers and 2,300 crew members. The arrival follows an $8 million port renovation, AP reported. Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla says Puerto Rico expects to welcome a record 1.7 million cruise ship passengers next year.
