A Royal Symphony in the water

Symphony of the Seas, Royal Caribbean’s fourth Oasis class ship, is one step closer to full completion.  With her exterior complete, the soon to be largest cruise ship in the world was floated out of her dry dock to begin the next phase of interior construction.

Less than one year before her debut, Symphony of the Seas, the fourth member of Royal Caribbean’s Oasis class of ships, was floated out of her dry dock earlier today to begin the next phase of interior construction.

Once complete Symphony of the Seas will claim the title of the world’s largest, and most adventure-filled, cruise ship, offering 28 more staterooms than her newest sister ship Harmony of the Seas and encompassing 230,000 gross registered tons.

Together with some new features and amenities for guests, Symphony will also boast all the groundbreaking innovations and thrilling experiences that have gathered worldwide recognition for Harmony of the Seas and other Royal Caribbean ships.  Among them are the distinct seven-neighbourhood concept, imaginative and sophisticated dining, Bionic Bar robot bartenders, Broadway-caliber entertainment, the iconic waterfront AquaTheater, the Perfect Storm trio of waterslides, and Ultimate Abyss – the tallest slide at sea.

Starting April 2018 Symphony of the Seas will spend her inaugural summer season exploring the Mediterranean calling on ports in Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca, Spain; Provence, France; Florence/Pisa, Rome and Naples, Italy. She will then arrive to Miami in early November to begin 7-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries.
