Royal Caribbean International is holding special viewing parties on its four largest ships on Friday for "Like Father," a Netflix original motion picture that was shot in part on the Harmony of the Seas.

The film, which will show on Netflix on Friday, Aug. 3, stars Kristen Bell, Kelsey Grammer and Seth Rogen.

Bell is an advertising executive and workaholic, who was left at the altar and unexpectedly ends up on her Caribbean honeymoon cruise with her estranged father -- Kelsey Grammer. After several adventures and much soul-searching, the two return with a renewed appreciation for family and life, according to a synopsis provided by Royal Caribbean.

The film was written, directed and produced by Lauren Miller Rogen, Seth Rogen's wife. Scenes were shot in Boleros, The Perfect Storm, FlowRider, Royal Promenade, Rising Tide Bar, and on the line's private island destination in Labadee, Haiti, where the overwater zipline is featured.

To mark the debut, Royal Caribbean is hosting what it calls the largest movie premiere at sea by screening the dramedy across its Oasis-class ships -- the Symphony, Harmony, Allure and Oasis of the Seas.

Showings will take place in the ships' aquatic AquaTheater, which incorporates two large movie screens. Prior to the showings, guests can participate in a special event in the Boardwalk neighborhood, featuring a live DJ, face painting, and food and beverage specials.
