The buzz about Royal Caribbean’s new Symphony of the Seas is turning into a roar. As the newest Oasis Class ship under construction, when details about the Symphony were released, Royal Caribbean fans were really excited.
Symphony of the Seas will be the largest cruise ship in the world when she is launched in April 2018, for an inaugural season in Europe.

In the entertainment department and back by popular demand, Royal Caribbean’s first Broadway musical at sea – “Hairspray” – will return. “Flight,” a historic satire on the evolution of air travel, will end with homage to the Wright Brothers.
The AquaTheater will feature a new high-diving and acrobatics aqua show, “HiRo”. A new Studio B ice show is also planned.
Futuristic mobile check-in will eliminate checking in at the traditional counter and its dreaded queues. The new process will leverage facial-recognition, bar codes, and beacons to make boarding quick and easy. Guests check in on Royal’s new mobile app and upload their security photo to create their onboard account at home. Upon arriving, guests go through security and head to their cabin, where their key will be waiting.
Rather than bore you to tears with innovation after innovation, (as if!) here’s a fun Symphony of the Seas Infographic that gives you some idea of what to expect when the ship debuts in Spring 2018.
