“The new ship will bring together the award-winning and acclaimed features only found on Royal Caribbean, with distinct new experiences that will continue to inspire adventure among guests of all ages,” the company said in an announcement.
“We set out to create a new level of vacation adventure and deliver the ultimate escape for families of all shapes and sizes,” said Royal Caribbean International president and CEO Michael Bayley.
“Symphony will introduce the most cutting-edge, customizable and digitally-enhanced experiences in the Royal Caribbean fleet,” he added.
Symphony of the Seas will claim the title of the largest cruise ship in the world when she debuts in April 2018 for her inaugural season in Europe.
Among other features, it will introduce the new generation of Royal Caribbean’s “Boardwalk” and “Central Park” neighborhoods, infused with new energy, interactive experiences and lively venues conceptualized for endless entertainment for all ages.
The two-level Ultimate Family Suite will debut many new features, including an exclusive slide from the kid’s only bedroom to the living room below; a floor-to-ceiling LEGO wall, an air-hockey table and hidden nooks for chilling.
Moreover, Royal Caribbean’s entertainment program will include, among many other events and performances, the successful “Hairspray”– the brand’s first Broadway musical at sea – and the new original Royal Caribbean show, “Flight”.
Furthermore, the latest technological innovations will be integrated throughout Symphony of the Seas, 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.
