Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas, the largest cruise ship ever built, touched water for the first time last week when the ship was floated out of dry dock at the shipyard in France.
The newest member of Royal Caribbean International’s Oasis class of ships, Symphony of the Seas, is now one step closer to full completion as her April 2018 debut approaches. With the exterior now complete, Symphony of the Seas was floated out of her dry dock on June 9th, 2017 to begin the next phase of interior construction.
The cruise line has released an awesome timelapse video (which can be seen below) of the float out that shows the giant cruise ship touching water for the first time.
Touting new features and amenities for guests, Symphony of the Seas 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.
Symphony of the Seas will sail week long cruises to the Eastern and Western Caribbean from the Cruise Capital of the World, PortMiami after an inaugural season in Europe.
