Royal Caribbean just unveiled the largest cruise ship in the world! “Symphony of the Seas” will have a slew of amenities in addition to two-level family suites and a whirlpool slide!

Royal Caribbean has just revealed their latest cruise ship, and behold, it is the largest in the world!

Named Symphony of the Seas, the ship will debut in April 2018 and will bring together the award-winning and acclaimed features that can only be found on Royal Caribbean cruises. On top of that, it comes with a slew of other new and exciting attractions like a reinvented boardwalk area and games and shows harnessing the latest state-of-the-art technology that guests, especially families, can look forward to.

Here’s a sneak peek of what you can expect:

Taking Entertainment to the Next Level


At the Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade, visitors can watch the “big game” from around the world across 30 big-screen TVs, ensuring that everyone has the best seat in the house!

Theatre out at sea will include “Hairspray” – the brand’s first Broadway musical at sea along with a new show, “Flight,” a historical satire on the evolution of air travel that ends with a homage to the famed Wright Brothers. There will even be an ice-skating show, “1977”, that will bring guests to London on the eve of the Queen’s Silver Jubilee when her Crown Jewels are stolen in the heist of the century. The awe-inspiring AquaTheater will activate the ocean backdrop and starry nights with a breathtaking show of aquatic acrobatics and stunning high-diving aerial performances called “HiRo”.


There will be thrilling slides like The Ultimate Abyss which will catapult guests from 10 storeys high into the heart of the Boardwalk. This is the tallest slide at sea! There will also be The Perfect Storm trio of waterslides, two FlowRider surf simulators, a mini-golf course, a nine-deck-high zip line and the beach pool.

For more exhilarating live action adventure at sea, guests can gear up for an epic glow-in-the-dark laser tag experience at Studio B, the world’s largest and ultimate laser tag arena! In Puzzle Break, teams will race against the clock to escape the submarine-themed room before time runs out.

The Ultimate Family Suite

Symphony will introduce the world’s most adventurous and interactive family suite. The two-level Ultimate Family Suite will debut eye-popping features: an exclusive slide from the kid’s only bedroom down to the living room below; a floor-to-ceiling LEGO wall, an air-hockey table and hidden nooks for chilling.

There will even be a 3D movie theatre-style TV room, complete with popcorn machine and a library of video games across multiple gaming systems that will surely bring family gaming time to a whole new level! There will also be a bumper pool table, a climbing experience and a full-size whirlpool that will provide unmatched ocean views. The best part? Guests in the Ultimate Family Suite will have their own personal Genie to take care of their every need while enjoying all the services and premium amenities of the Royal Suite Class. What could be better? Time to indulge away!

All-New Culinary Creations

Symphony will debut new food and beverage concepts across the ship’s seven neighbourhoods.  From fresh seafood at Hooked to made-to-order tacos and Mexican fare at El Loco Fresh to other restaurants like Wonderland Imaginative Cuisine, Jamie’s Italian by Jamie Oliver, 150 Central Park with its American seasonal menu, Park Café and Izumi Hibachi and Sushi, which will all introduce refreshed designs and new menu specialities!

Sugar Beach, a candy and ice-cream shop will bring tempting ice cream and toppings galore. The sweetest spot on the high seas also will feature family-friendly activities for aspirational bakers.

High-Tech and Mobile Check-Ins

Saw hello to shorter lines and queues, too! The latest technological innovations will be integrated throughout Symphony of the Seas, which involves a self-check-in via facial recognition, bar codes and beacons. Guests will check-in via the brand’s new mobile app and seamlessly upload their security “selfie” to create their onboard account from the comfort of home. Upon arrival, guests will go through a security screening and then head straight to their stateroom where their key will be ready and waiting.
