RCCL Lets People in on Symphony of the Seas’ Look, Features
Royal Caribbean has unveiled the new dining concepts and family activities that will feature onboard the line’s biggest ever ship, Symphony of the Seas.
Symphony of the Seas will be largest cruise ship in the world with a capacity of 5,500 guests when it makes its debut in April 2018 for an inaugural summer season sailing around the Mediterranean.
Among the new features on the 16-deck ship will be a “reimagined” Boardwalk area featuring The Ultimate Abyss, which is billed as the “tallest slide at sea”, while the new Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade will show sports from around the world on huge TV screens.
There will also be an increased number of balcony staterooms overlooking the ocean, as well as the Boardwalk and Central Park districts of the ship.
Another new feature will be a two-level Ultimate Family Suite which will include a slide from the children’s bedroom to the living room below, plus a floor-to-ceiling Lego wall and an air hockey table.
New dining options will include Hooked, the line’s first New England-style seafood restaurant, while El Loco Fresh will offer Mexican cuisine.
Entertainment will include a new original Royal Caribbean show, Flight, about the evolution of air travel, while another new show HiRo will be performed at the Aqua Theatre. There will also be a high-tech ice-skating show called 1977, while Hairspray will headline the Royal Theatre’s program.
Michael Bayley, president and chief executive of Royal Caribbean International, said: “We’re excited to introduce Symphony of the Seas, our boldest composition yet, offering the best of Royal Caribbean with some new surprises for our guests to create a holiday that adventurers of all ages can enjoy together.
Symphony, which will be Royal Caribbean’s 25th ship, will initially sail around the Mediterranean in summer 2018 before relocating to Miami where it will be based year-round from November 24, 2018, sailing seven-night itineraries around the eastern and western Caribbean.
