Symphony of the Seas is the 26th cruise ship to join the Royal Caribbean fleet and the fourth addition to the cruise line’s Oasis Class of ships, following Oasis of the Seas, Allure of the Seas, and Harmony of the Seas. Symphony of the Seas is the biggest of the four, breaking the record for the largest cruise ship in the world! She made her debut sailing around the Mediterranean with Barcelona, Mallorca, and Rome among the ports of call. Following her maiden season, she traversed the Atlantic Ocean to call Miami, Florida her second home. Symphony of the Seas offers voyages in the Caribbean during the summertime and returns to the Mediterranean just in time for winter.
A voyage on Symphony of the Seas will reward you with an experience like no other! She is jampacked with more entertainment options, more thrilling activities, and more onboard eateries than any other Royal Caribbean cruise ship. These revamped activities, entertainment, and dining reflect the international passengers that the cruise line attracts. You won’t have to worry about getting bored because there’s no way you will be able to explore everything on board during the duration of your cruise. Symphony of the Seas is simply one-of-a-kind. Sailing with her will provide you and your family with an unforgettable cruise holiday.
Her sister, Harmony of the Seas, is outfitted with some of the best features and state-of-the-art amenities in the cruise industry. Garnering such a great response, Royal Caribbean decided to pack these popular highlights and more on Symphony of the Seas! Among the award-winning favourites include the seven neighbourhoods that each offer distinct ambiences, the Bionic Bar with two robot bartenders, and the AquaTheater at the stern of the ship.
Catering to a family environment, Symphony of the Seas is packed with activities for adults and kids alike. For the little ones (or those still young at heart), take the plunge down The Perfect Storm’s waterslide trio or, if you’re feeling adventurous, Ultimate Abyss, the tallest and longest waterslide at sea. Break a sweat ascending the rock-climbing wall and cutting figure eights on the ice-skating rink. During the day, you and your family can hang out by the pool, splashing around or soaking up the rays; when evening approaches, make your way to the spacious theatre to catch a Broadway-calibre show.
In addition to the main dining room that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Symphony of the Seas also offers 13 other dining options. No matter what you’re craving, you will never go hungry. Park Cafe offers deli favourites and fresh salad, and Dog House grills up various hot dogs from around the world. Sorrento’s Pizza is the best spot for an authentic New York City pizzeria experience, and El Loco Fresh will get your tastebuds going wild with tangy Mexican fare. Embrace diner-style Americana at Johnny Rockets and an authentic New England feel at Reel Fresh Seafood.
There are also some fine dining options if you’re looking to celebrate an anniversary, a birthday, or just life! Enjoy a simple but elegant dinner at 150 Central Park, serving up six courses of farm-to-table cuisine. Meat lovers will feel right at home at Chops Grille, where the finest cuts of steak just melt in your mouth. Jamie Oliver has partnered with Royal Caribbean to bring you Tuscan-inspired dishes at Jamie’s Italian by Jamie Oliver, and sushi lovers will get their fill indulging in sushi and sashimi at Izumi.
After an adventure-filled day wandering through the ship and exploring the exotic ports of call, there’s nothing better than returning to the comfort of your stateroom. Royal Caribbean offers four main types of staterooms on board Symphony of the Seas. Interior staterooms typically don’t feature a window; however, Royal Caribbean added a virtual balcony to some of them. The stateroom innovation takes the form of a full-length screen displaying a live feed of the sea. Balcony staterooms offer either views of the sea or, thanks to Symphony of the Seas’ innovative stateroom design, views of the Promenade, Central Park, and Boardwalk, allowing you to view the daily parades from the comfort of your own stateroom. There’s also oceanview staterooms and Suites.
The staterooms aboard Symphony of the Seas are spacious. The smallest staterooms start at 14 square metres, and the largest suites showcase four bedrooms, perfect for larger groups. All staterooms come with a television, telephone, private bathroom, shower, vanity area, and hairdryer.
