Symphony of the Seas
About Royal Caribbean International
Royal Caribbean International is a brand with an incredible history and unlimited potential. The cruise line not only sets new standards by the size of the ships, but also by its degree of innovation. Especially the entertainment programm on their vessels is a new invention. The ships are convincing due to a variety of sport offers and leisure activities for every age group. Particularly the outdoor area offers great experiences with ice rinks or zip lines. However not only the big vessels, but also the smaller ones offer plenty options to have fun in a relaxed atmosphere. In the different restaurants you expect tasty dishes combined with an attentive service. On board, all age groups feel at home. Due to the company's heritage a basic knowledge in English is recommended. Another thing to take into considerations is that the additional costs are higher than on German ships.
The Symphony of the Seas is the fourth ship of the "Oasis" class and has been the largest cruise liner in the world since its completion in May 2018. With a length of 362 meters this ship is a real mega-liner. On 18 decks, the ship can accommodate up to 5580 guests (with double occupancy). On board you will find a colorful mix of various activities and also the one or other highlight that you will not expect on a cruise ship.
The cabins are all very modern and comfortably furnished, providing ample space to relax and store your luggage. In addition to the standard inside and outside cabins, the balcony cabins offer a choice between a sea-view balcony, boardwalk view or Central Park view. If you prefer exclusivity, the different types of suites offer the luxury you prefer. Especially for families, the Ultimate Family Suite offers special highlights, such as an own slide, an air hockey table or table tennis. These cabins are also very colorful in their design.
Atmosphere on Board
The Symphony of the Seas is a ship for all ages, with a special focus on guests looking to enjoy the full range of entertainment on the world's largest cruise ship. The audience is international, with mostly American guests. The atmosphere is relaxed, the service is friendly and very professional, just typically American. On some evenings, festive attire is expected in the main restaurant. However, if you like it more casual, you can switch to other restaurants on evenings like this.
Food and Beverages
The culinary offer on board includes numerous restaurants, cafes, lounges and bars where every guest will find what they are looking for. Enjoy a delicious steak in the American steakhouse "Chops Grille" or try everything from sushi to sashimi in the Asian restaurant. While the main and buffet restaurants with international cuisine are already included in the cruise price, the specialty restaurants charge a surcharge called "cover charge". As with all other services on board, a service charge will be added to the drinks prices. The Bionic Bar that is also existing at the sister ship Harmony of the Seas will also be at your service. Robots will spin around on the Royal Promenade and mix cocktails.
Entertainment, Sports and Relaxation
The Symphony of the Seas combines the most spectacular attractions of the fleet and at the same time surprises with other exciting innovations. The entertainment is at least as big as the cruise ship itself. Enjoy spectacular Broadway musicals and a sensational aqua theater on board. For all fans of speed the more than 30 meters long water slide "Ultimate Abyss" will be a real highlight. You always wanted to try out surfing? You can do that on board in the FlowRider, the ship's surf simulator. Of course you also have the opportunity to visit the classic gym and to participate in the extensive course offer or just indulge yourself in the wellness and spa area (applications partly for a fee).
Thanks to their size, the possibilities for passengers of all ages on board are almost unlimited - there is something for everyone! When cruising on the Symphony of the Seas, the ship itself becomes the destination. The relaxed atmosphere on board contributes to well-being, as does the professional but unobtrusive service.
