Currently under construction at the STX shipyard in France, the 6,780 passenger cruise ship will sail a season in the Mediterranean before heading to her home in the Cruise Capital of the World, PortMiami.  Once in Miami, Symphony of the Seas will sail week long cruises to the Eastern and Western Caribbean.

Symphony of the Seas will be the 4th Oasis class ship from Royal Caribbean in what has been one of the most popular class of cruise ships in the world.

Touting new features and amenities for guests, she also will boast all the groundbreaking innovations and thrilling experiences that have garnered world-wide recognition for Harmony of the Seas.  Among the award-winning and acclaimed favorites are the distinct seven-neighborhood concept, imaginative and sophisticated dining, Bionic Bar robot bartenders powered by Makr Shakr, Broadway-caliber entertainment, the iconic waterfront AquaTheater, the Perfect Storm trio of waterslides, and Ultimate Abyss – the tallest slide at sea that drops 10 stories.

Royal Caribbean has released a few photos of the construction of the ship that we thought our readers would enjoy seeing.
