About Royal Caribbean International

Founded in Norway in 1969 and nowadays based in Miami “Royal Caribbean” is not only one of the largest cruise companies in the world, but also operates some of the world’s largest cruise ships. The brand is well known for innovations and new cruising concepts and offers an interesting mix of thrilling attractions, very professional service and very good cuisine. Though Americans are still the majority on Royal Caribbean’s ships the guests are becoming more and more international. Therefore the main language used on board is English.

 

The Symphony of the Seas

The Symphony of the Seas will be the fourth ship of the Oasis Class and after its commission in May 2018 also the world’s largest cruise ship with a length of 362 meters. It will offer room for up to 5497 guests as well as 3000 crew members.

 

Staterooms

All staterooms on board of the Symphony of the Seas are very spacious, modern, comfortably furnished and offer enough space for your personal well-being. Besides the standard inside- and outside cabins you can choose among different balcony cabins with ocean view, view to the Boardwalk or the Central Park. If you prefer exclusiveness, then the different suite categories offer the desired luxury.

 

Atmosphere on Board

The Symphony of the Seas will offer great experiences for all age groups. Thanks to guests from all over the world the atmosphere is cosmopolitan and very relaxed. The service is friendly and very professional. Though the dress-code during the day is casual, on some evenings a formal attire is expected in the main restaurant.

Food and Beverages

Correlating with its enormous size, the Symphony of the Seas features a large range of restaurants, cafés and bars. Enjoy a juicy steak in the American steakhouse “Chops Grille” or try Asian food with everything from Sushi to Sashimi. While the main- and buffet restaurants are already included in the price, the specialty restaurants charge an extra fee. The Bionic Bar, which also exists on the sister vessel, Harmony of the Seas, will be on board of the “Symphony” as well. There you will encounter robotic bartenders that mix up your drinks.

 

Entertainment, Sports and Relaxation

The Symphony of the Seas combines the fleet’s most spectacular attractions and surprises with further exiting innovations at the same time. Thereby the entertainment options are at least as big as the cruise ship is. Enjoy excellent Broadway musicals and the sensationally Aqua Theater on board. For fans of pace the 30 meters long waterslide “Ultimate Abyss” will be a real highlight. Have you ever wanted to try surfing? No problem, this can be done on the FlowRider. Of course all those amenities cruise guests love and expect from every ship can be found here as well: a large Spa, a modern fitness area, pools…

 

Our Summary

Thanks to its huge size, the possibilities for all age groups are nearly unlimited – there is definitely something for everyone. This makes the Symphony of the Seas to a destination in itself and the ports of call become a minor matter.
