Royal Caribbean International has orchestrated a new vacation experience that is set to redefine family and adventure travel in 2018.
Symphony of the Seas, the cruise line’s newest ship, brings together the award-winning and acclaimed features only to be found on Royal Caribbean, with distinctly new experiences that will continue to inspire adventure among guests of all ages.
New dining concepts and family activities, awe-inspiring theatre, aerial, ice and aqua entertainment, and the most dynamic suite in family travel will join the lineup of Royal Caribbean exclusives such as –
- The robot bartenders at the Bionic Bar, powered by Makr Shakr
- The iconic AquaTheater showcasing unrivaled high-flying, high-diving performances.
- Ultimate Abyss, the tallest slide at sea – for a thrilling crescendo of diverse experiences.
All set in the unique Multi neighbourhood concept of the award-winning Oasis-class ships.
Once completed Symphony of the Seas will claim the title of the worlds largest cruise ship when she debuts in April 2018 for her inaugural season in Europe. The architectural marvel will accommodate more balcony staterooms overlooking the open ocean and legendary Boardwalk and Central Park neighborhoods than her popular sister ship Harmony of the Seas. But there is much more to this ship than her impressive size.
“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 vacation that adventurers of all ages can enjoy together,” said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International.
“We set out to create a new level of vacation adventure and deliver the ultimate escape for families of all shapes and sizes. Symphony will introduce the most cutting-edge, customizable, and digitally-enhanced experiences in the Royal Caribbean fleet.”

Hooked Seafood, Royal Caribbean’s first New England-style seafood restaurant, will feature fresh seafood and a robust raw bar complete with oysters shucked to order. Located at the front of the ship in the Solarium, the casually sophisticated restaurant will offer expansive views of the open water, serving lunch and dinner.
El Loco Fresh will offer mouthwatering made-to-order tacos, burritos and other popular Mexican fare. The open-air restaurant in the Sports Zone will seat more than 100 guests.
The cruise line’s signature culinary favorites will still be available. these include:

All New Mobile Check-in Debuts on Symphony
The latest technological innovations will be integrated throughout Symphony, including a redesigned check-in experience that eliminates lines and bypasses the counter. The new process will leverage a combination of facial recognition, bar codes and beacons to make boarding fast and frictionless.
Guests will check-in via the brand’s new mobile app and seamlessly upload their security “selfie” to create their onboard account from the comfort of their home. Upon arrival, guests will go through a security screening and then head straight to their stateroom, where their key will be ready and waiting.
In addition to the mobile check-in option, Symphony will feature all of the pioneering and award-winning guest technology that Royal Caribbean is known for, including VOOM – the fastest internet at sea, state-of-the-art wayfinding and virtual balconies.
The 25th ship in Royal Caribbean’s fleet, Symphony of the Seas will set sail in April 2018 to kick off a summer season in the Mediterranean, calling on ports in Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca, Spain; Provence, France; and Florence/Pisa, Rome and Naples, Italy.
Beginning Nov. 24, 2018, the adventure-packed ship will make Miami, FL her year-round home, sailing 7-night Eastern and Western Caribbean voyages from the state-of-the-art new Terminal A at PortMiami.
Symphony of the Seas will span 16 guest decks, encompass more than 230,000 gross registered tons, carry 5,500 guests at double occupancy, and feature 2,774 staterooms.
