Royal Caribbean has often been hailed as setting the gold standard for fun, affordable cruising, but its newest ship – the world’s largest will take the ‘fun’ aspect to a new level.
At more than 362m long and 65m wide, The Symphony of the Seas is roughly the size of a city block and, considering its 16 decks, almost as high. It will carry around 5500 passengers in 2774 cabins.
It will be largely ‘fun’ focused, with monolithic waterslides, water parks, bionic robot bartenders, sports bars and games arcades, as well as all the luxury pools, spas and places to while your time away.
Think theatres, both inside and, if you haven’t already noticed a theme here, over the water. Yes, I hear you say, “it’s on a cruise ship, of course it’s over water” but this one is actually an ‘aqua theatre’. There’ll be a cinema, a boardwalk for shoppers, an onboard green space called Central Park, an ice-skating rink and, well, too much to mention really.
So, why not have yourself a quick peak?
