Symphony Of The Seas Floated Out of Drydock

June 9, 2017.

The newest member of Royal Caribbean International’s Oasis class of ships, Symphony of the Seas, is now one step closer to full completion as her April 2018 debut approaches.  With the exterior now complete, Symphony of the Seas was floated out of dry dock to begin the next phase of interior construction.

Symphony of the Seas will spend her inaugural summer season in the Mediterranean calling on ports in Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca, Spain; Provence, France; Florence/Pisa, Rome and Naples, Italy.  The ship will then arrive to Miami in early November 2018 to begin 7-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries.

Just as each of her sisters did in small increments, Symphony of the Seas will claim the title of the world’s largest cruise ship, offering 28 more staterooms than Harmony of the Seas and encompassing 230,000 gross registered tons.

Along with new features and amenities for guests, Symphony also will boast all the innovations and experiences of Harmony of the Seas.  Among these are the seven-neighborhood concept, a vast array of dining options, Bionic Bar robot bartenders powered by Makr Shakr, Broadway-caliber entertainment, the iconic waterfront AquaTheater, the Perfect Storm trio of waterslides, and Ultimate Abyss – the tallest slide at sea.
