Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas Debuts as World’s Largest Cruise Ship in April 2018


According to a report issued on March 8, 2017 out of Miami, the Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas will debut in April 2018 at the new PortMiami Terminal A. The ship and Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas will meet in November 2018 to provide Caribbean itineraries to cruise guests in the latter part of the year. Caribbean and European itineraries for the Symphony, which is the 26th ship in Royal Caribbean’s fleet, are currently available for booking.

Upon delivery, the Symphony of the Seas will spend her first summer season visiting destinations in the Mediterranean, such as Barcelona, Spain, Provence, France, and Rome and Naples, Italy. She will then proceed to Miami in November to start seven-night Caribbean itineraries.

As the largest cruise ship in the world, the Symphony encompasses 230,000 gross registered tons. She also offers 28 more staterooms than her newest sister ship, Harmony of the Seas. In addition, the ship boasts innovations and experiences that have given world-class recognition to the Harmony as well.

Some of the award-winning favorites include creative and sophisticated dining, Broadway-style entertainment, the AquaTheater (an iconic waterfall), and the Perfect Storm trio of waterslides. The Ultimate Abyss will also be featured, which is acclaimed for being the tallest slide at sea.

The “Crown of Miami,” which is scheduled to be completed in time for the Symphony’s arrival, is the most innovative cruise facility in the U.S. The 170,000-square-foot terminal is expected to bring in $500 million in revenue and add 4,000 jobs to the Miami-Dade County area. Royal Caribbean has projected that it will generate at least 1.8 million passenger moves at the new terminal, which represents 30% of the port’s estimated amount of passenger traffic.

Again, if you are seeking to book accommodations on the Symphony, reservations are currently being taken for Mediterranean and Caribbean itineraries. Reservations will be accepted through travel operators as well as directly through Royal Caribbean International.
