Anticipation for Symphony of the Seas has been incredible and now that the world’s largest cruise ship is here, let us give you a first peak.
The fourth ship in the Oasis-Class of ships takes many of her design and feature elements from her sisters, such as the Ultimate Abyss slide, the Perfect Storm water slides and the AquaTheater, but as with all new builds, some new elements and spaces are making their debut. Playmakers Sports Bar and Arcade offer a great place to watch all kinds of sports, snack on bar favorites and get in some arcade fun. El Loco Fresh is a brand new complimentary Mexican eatery featuring tacos, burritos and freshly mad salsas. Hooked Seafood is a new casual specialty restaurant blending a New England decor with fresh seafood and raw bar specialties. Enjoy a glow-in-the-dark Laser Tag adventure in Battle for Planet Z. Add to this all new shows and a one-of-a-kind Ultimate Family Suite and you’ve got the makings of an awesome cruise.
