World’s Largest Ship Touches The Water For The Very First Time

World’s Largest Ship Touches The Water For The Very First Time


The newest addition to the Royal Caribbean cruise family, Symphony of the Seas, holds the title for the world’s largest cruise ship and has just set sail for the very first time.

This marks a ground-breaking accomplishment for the cruise line as it marks the end of the exterior work of the cruise ship, however it is reported that it will still take the team several months to complete the interior works of the ship.

Symphony, also known as the fourth Oasis-class vessel, is reported to be 230,000 tonnes in weight and 1,188 feet in length with plans to debut sailing in the Mediterranean Sea in the summer of 2018.

Following from this, the ship will also make its way to the United States and will end up at Royal Caribbean’s new terminal in Port Miami.

Symphony of the Seas rivals Harmony of the Seas which debuted as the world’s largest ship back in May 2016 but both ships will hold similarities.

Royal’s newest vessel will also have a 10-deck dry slide, rock climbing wall that is 40 feet in height, FlowRider surfing simulator, Central Park and Boardwalk neighbourhood, ice skating rink, and Aqua Theatre.

Apart from being the largest ship in the world, the vessel is enhanced in terms of adventures and exciting features with Royal Caribbean also recently revealing that it will surprise its passengers with more of its luxurious cabins and amenities.

Symphony will feature double numbers of its cabins compared to Harmony of the Seas, and will feature overlooking balconies, virtual balconies and the highest number of ocean view cabins.

It will also open cafeterias and bistros which will again include the famous celebrity Chef, Jamie Oliver, widely known for his Italian recipes as well as his Mexican taste.

Passengers will also get to enjoy its vintage wine bar and there will be more than 20 dining options for guests to choose from.
