Fun-loving families all have something to look forward to with the debut of the world’s largest cruise ship, Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas.
The massive 230,000-ton ship is expected to begin coasting the seas in April 2018 and will feature an unmatched two-story suite complete with slides and an entire wall of LEGOs. Beds are tucked away in with personal corners to allow room for more entertainment like air hockey, video games and a theater with a popcorn machine.
What could make this suite more magical? Perhaps a 212-square-foot wraparound balcony with a climbing wall, bumper pool table, and a whirlpool looking over an endless ocean. There’s no need to lift a finger as a personal butler, called a Royal Genie, is available to maximize the cruising experience.
While this ship will offer features similar to those of other Oasis cruises, Symphony of the Seas entertainment will go beyond the expected ice rinks, surf simulators, and AquaTheater performances. In addition to adding food venues, the grand cruise will showcase the 10-story-high Ultimate Abyss, the tallest slide at sea. Talk about a thrill for all involved.
Stacked 16 decks high, the ship is set to carry up to 5,500 people while also hosting the largest spa and casino on the waters, a high point for adults.
What good is an elaborate cruise with slow check-in? The company’s app will allow a quick and easy boarding check-in for guests. If passengers get caught in a wait for any reason, robot bartenders will be serving up drinks at the Bionic Bar.
The new ship will force the former largest ship, Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of Seas, to retire the title.
What a way to literally out-do yourself, Royal Caribbean.
