Check Out The LARGEST Cruise Ship In The WORLD

Paula Keung here with another week of We Hear from Travel Savvy. It’s cruise season and today I’m taking a peek at the world’s largest cruise ship, Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas. In the past the average cruise offered a smattering of entertainment opportunities that lasted through the first two days at sea and then you’d spend the rest of your time walking the decks until you pulled into port, a little bit bored but not about to admit it.

The symphony which just set sail on its inaugural voyage from Barcelona is officially the largest passenger ship– the biggest floating mega resort ever to take the Seas. The 25th ship in Royal Caribbean’s fleet, Symphony of the Seas weighs in at well over 200,000 tons and measures 238 feet tall– about as tall as New York City’s Flatiron Building. The ship’s length reaches 1,188 feet which is almost as long as the Empire State Building is tall. On a busy week, the ship will host over 6,500 guests and well over 2,000 crew members. This floating mini city on a ship is a larger version of Royal Caribbean’s giant Harmony of the Seas and boasts three main pool areas, a waterpark complex complete with a wave pool, an ice-skating rink, two rock climbing walls, a basketball court, an indoor promenade with shops, and something everyone will want to check out.

Of course you won’t go hungry with the seemingly endless selection of cafes, restaurants, and bars. Guests on board the symphony will be super occupied all day long with so much to do and they might actually get lost since they have their pick of 18 separate decks and 24 elevators, all serving 7 distinct neighborhoods. You can spend your morning at the mini golf course, then go ziplining or book a session at the glow-in-the-dark laser tag space, or just hang out at the arcade all day. At night, take in the Tony award-winning Broadway show, Hairspray, and then head over to the comedy club for some late-night laughs, or hit up any of the many dance parties to shimmy the night away.

The ship’s list of superlatives as the biggest and the best don’t stop there, it’s also the most Instagram-able ship sailing across the seas, and has a cast member who acts as the symphony’s Instagrammer-in-chief, actively helping guests take and post excellent grams for the world to enjoy. Actually it’s pretty easy to see why Royal Caribbean is a social media darling. A search of a hashtag Royal Caribbean on Instagram returns an endless list of jealousy inducing photos of vacationers living their best lives. Get your smartphone ready because you’ll want to post every second of your time onboard. Symphony of the Seas also boasts a bi-level state, of the art family suite, appropriately called the ultimate family suite.

Standing at two decks high, the over 1,300 square foot suite is larger than most Manhattan apartments. This extravagant suite overlooks the ship’s promenade and golf course from the exclusive 17th deck, and includes a private cinema with an 85 inch HD television and gaming consoles, a Lego wall, a 212 square foot balcony with a ping-pong table and whirlpool, and a slide connecting the children’s room to the main living area. The suite itself has two bedrooms and can sleep up to eight people. How much will this suite cost? The price depends on demand and seasonality and averages $45,000 to $80,000 a week. Enough about all the fun you’ll have, on top of all this the symphony is 25% more fuel efficient than other ships in its class thanks to its new streamlined design.

There are no incandescent light bulbs on board, which reduces the amount of air conditioning needed and aids in energy efficiency. If you’re new to cruising or aren’t sure you’ll have enough to do onboard, we’re pretty sure that Symphony of the Seas will keep you so entertained and busy on their seven eight journeys that you’ll need to book several trips just to be able to enjoy all of the ship’s offerings.
