New dining concepts and family activities, awe-inspiring theater, aerial, ice and aqua entertainment, and the most dynamic suite in family travel will join the lineup of Royal Caribbean exclusives – such as the robot bartenders at the Bionic Bar, powered by Makr Shakr; the iconic AquaTheater showcasing unrivaled high-flying, high-diving performances; and the Ultimate Abyss, the tallest slide at sea – for a thrilling crescendo of diverse experiences, all set in the unique seven-neighborhood concept of the award-winning Oasis-class ships.

The ship is scheduled to debut on March 31, 2018 and after a season of sailing in the Mediterranean, Symphony of the Seas will head to the Cruise Capital of the World, PortMiami.  Once in Miami, the vessel will sail week long cruises to the Western and Eastern Caribbean.
