Royal Caribbean reveals details of its latest ship


One of the world’s largest cruise companies, Royal Caribbean has released details around the world’s largest ship – the Symphony of the Seas.

Symphony of the Seas will eclipse her sister, Harmony of the Seas in size. And maybe even in offerings.

There is a family suite with a slide in it so the kids can slide from their bedroom to the living room, there is a mobile check-in service that uses facial recognition.

The ship’s new 1,346 sq-ft family suite has two bedrooms and sleeps eight people and includes a 3D cinema room with a popcorn machine and a library of video games. There’s a whirlpool, a floor-to-ceiling LEGO climbing wall as well as an air hockey table.

Like Harmony of the Seas, her sister will also have the 10-storey Ultimate Abyss waterslide as well as the Bionic Bar (which you can try on Ovation of the Seas). Also, the ship will have The Boardwalk which will include a new sweet and ice-cream shop as well as a new sports bar and arcade.

She’ll be launched in April 2018 and will be sailing through Europe right up until October 2018. Symphony of the Seas will be calling at Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Provence, Florence, Pisa, Rome and Naples before arriving at the new state-of-the-art cruise terminal in Miami.
