Symphony of the Seas is the largest cruise ship ever built and took 4,700 shipbuilders three years to build the vessel. Symphony of the Seas is the fourth of five Oasis class ships from the cruise line.

The 25th cruise ship in Royal Caribbean’s fleet, Symphony of the Seas is 228,081 gross tons in size, measures 238 feet tall and spans 1,188 feet long. She will welcome 5,518 guests at double occupancy in 2,759 staterooms, including 28 additional balcony rooms that overlook the ocean or signature Boardwalk neighborhood.

One Oasis Class ship, seven distinctive neighborhoods, the tallest slide at sea with the Ultimate Abyss and countless adventures for guests of all ages, the family adventure of a lifetime has surprises at every turn.

Richard Fain, Chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean, gave the following statement: “Symphony of the Seas is the latest example of how our people work to push the envelope of innovation with each new ship.

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.”

New Culinary Adventures

Hooked Seafood: This upscale eatery atop of the world’s largest cruise ship in the Solarium serves up the real taste of New England-inspired seafood and unparalleled ocean vistas to match.

Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade: Stretching the length of a reimagined Boardwalk, now touting fresh energy and swagger, the whole family can watch the home team play across 31 big-screen TVs, during the day and into the late night. The indoor and outdoor arcade, packed with over 20 games, offers the opportunity for friendly competition. The on-point menu of classic American bar food features everything from wings, burgers and popcorn shrimp to picture-perfect sundaes; as well as craft beers and cocktails.

El Loco Fresh: Made-to-order tacos and burritos wrapped with fresh tortillas are among the Mexican “street food” favorites that will hit the spot for adventure seekers looking to fuel up with minimal downtime.

Sugar Beach: The signature candy and ice cream shop is the sweet spot on the Boardwalk with more than 100 types of candies, a lineup of ice cream flavors and even DIY activities for the aspiring culinary artist.

Symphony of the Seas maiden voyage will take place on April 7 after a five night preview cruise.  The ship will sail a season in the Mediterranean before heading to her home in PortMiami.  Once in Miami, Symphony of the Seas will sail seven night cruises to the Eastern and Western Caribbean.
