The world’s biggest cruise ship is always likely to turn heads, but Symphony of the Seas made quite the entrance as she arrived at her new home in the USA.
The new addition to Royal Caribbean‘s fleet made her debut, sailing into Port Miami which will serve as her permanent, year-round home, all lit up against the night sky to offer a sneak peek of what’s on offer.
Cruise enthusiasts have already been able to explore the ship’s epic features following her inaugural Europe season.
That includes an onboard zip-line, laser tag, a boardwalk packed with games, a speciality sweet and ice cream shop, as well as the tallest slide at sea, a trio of multi-story racing waterslides, surf simulators, and rock climbing walls.
Symphony’s official naming ceremony will take place on Thursday 15th November, in a celebration hosted by her Godfamily; American actors Carlos and Alexa PenaVega, along with their toddler son Ocean.
Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International, said: “Symphony takes family holidaying to an all new level with energy and options never before found in one place.
“This ship is the perfect blend of our greatest hits we know guests love and a lineup of vibrant, new restaurants, activities and unparalleled entertainment – all purposefully designed around guests’ preferences.
“With her US homecoming this week, Symphony is changing the game for how guests of all ages holiday on our biggest and boldest vessel yet.”
This will be the 25th ship in Royal Caribbean’s fleet, which will boast a gross tonnage of 228,081.
She is expected to sail year-round on seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries from Miami beginning 17th November including visits to the cruise line’s private island in the Bahamas, Perfect Day at CocoCay when it launches in May 2019.
