Symphony of the seas

Reviewed By: on
We went on the third sailing on symphony of the seas may 2018. It was our first cruise. We booked it for my 60th birthday so it was special. The ship was wonderful, in a week, with getting off most days we didn't see it all but what we did see was amazing. Cabin wasn't cramped and we got a free upgrade from an inside balcony to a sea view balcony. Staff apart from the man who cleaned our room were great and we were made to feel special. Everywhere was clean and food was amazing. We are in the mdr for dinner and buffet for other meals. The buffet selection was great and the food was always hot and fresh. We saw them changing it. We found plenty of storage space in the cabin for our luggage and empty cases went under the bed. No problem getting beds around the pool. Loads of towels available and of course a steady supply of drinks. We didn't buy a drinks package as we don't drink that much and had alcohol off the ship. Oh we did have the soft drinks package. Getting on and off the ship was faultless. I loved that the lifts have the day of the week on the floor. We rarely waited for a lift but did use the stairs as well to burn off a few calories. We thought the tours were too expensive so did it ourselves with public transport, apart from Naples when we booked with an amazing local man. Most people dressed up in the main dining room which made it nice. Staff were friendly, helpful and lovely. Only complaint was that it was too short a cruise though queues for reception were long. Loved the cruise and ship and can't wait to go back.
