Symphony of the Seas became the 26th ship to enter the Royal Caribbean fleet. She belongs to the Oasis Class of ships and is the fourth member—joining the Oasis, Allure, and Harmony of the Seas. She is also the biggest of the four, making her the biggest cruise ship in the world! Her maiden season set sail around the Mediterranean with ports of call including Barcelona, Mallorca, and Rome before crossing the Atlantic Ocean to Miami and sails to the Caribbean. Symphony of the Seas has 28 more staterooms than Harmony of the Seas and has a gross tonnage of 230,000.
With ground-breaking features and amenities onboard, Symphony of the Seas boasts the same outstanding features that garnered great reviews and global popularity for Harmony of the Seas. The award-winning and acclaimed favourites include distinct seven-neighbourhoods concept, exciting dining options, a futuristic bionic bar with robotic bartenders, Broadway-calibre shows, the waterfront AquaTheater, a trio of waterslides, and Remaining Abyss—the tallest waterslide at sea.
There’s the main dining room for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are also 13 other options—from the Park Cafe to the Windjammer, the Boardwalk Dog House, and classic room service. For casual eating, there’s Johnny Rockets restaurant and Cupcake Cupboard. If you’re after something special, try out 150 Central Park—serving up a 6-course meal of avant-garde cuisine. For meat lovers, there’s Chops Grille Steakhouse and the Samba Grill Brazilian steakhouse. There’s also a la carte dining options with the Izumi offering Asian cuisine ideal for sushi lovers.
After a busy day exploring the ship’s facilities and exciting ports of call, there’s nothing better than getting back to the comfort of your stateroom. Royal Caribbean offer four main types of staterooms onboard Symphony of the Seas: Interior—including Promenade, Central Park, and Boardwalk view staterooms, so you can view the daily parades from the comfort of your own stateroom. There’s also Ocean View, Balcony, and Suites. All staterooms come with a TV, telephone, private bathroom, shower, vanity area, and a hairdryer as standard.
