Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas – the world’s largest cruise ship, ever
built, has set sail.
“Symphony of the Seas is the latest example of how out people work to push the envelope of innovation with each new ship.” – Richard D. Fain, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. Chairman and CEO
“The Oasis Class has been a trend-setting design, but the team has evolved the design to build on that success to provide even more incredible family adventures. We’re thankful to have a partner in STX France that is every bit as ambitious as we are about building technologically advanced ships,” he said.
Symphony of the Seas has surpassed the Harmony of the Seas being the largest cruise ship there is. The new cruise is 18 floors high, accommodates 6,700 passengers and is about the same length of the Empire State Building. The 228,081-gross-ton ship features the world’s tallest water slide (of course), exceptional dining, entertainment and remarkable kinds of rooms. It’s like you’ll never run out of things to do!

Additional aspects of this ship include rock climbing, ice skating (yes, ICE skating), five pools, twenty separate restaurants, an indoor park, laser tag arena, a sports bar that will feature 30 big-screen TVs and the best part is the Bionic Bar where robots make your drinks. How cool is that! The ship will also host the Broadway hit “Hairspray” as part of their entertainment production.
Beginning its life in France for Barcelona, Spain, before heading to Port Miami in November where it’s easier for passengers to get to. Symphony of Seas will operate seven-night eastern and Western Caribbean cruises in the Bahamas.
The main purpose of this cruise is to make passengers believe, after few days of being in the ship that they are not even in the sea because of so many things to do. It is no longer the port but the ship itself has become a destination. Mark your calendar because it will go on its first sailing on October 2018.
Planning a family trip? With a two-story slide, private movie theater, Lego wall and secret wall space, the cruise’s ultimate luxury family suite for eight will set you back in tens of thousands of dollars. Not ideal for budget cruising.
