Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas is 362 metres long and has a weight of 227,000 tons. Five times as big as the Titanic, the 16-deck ship can accommodate 6,780 passengers and is manned by 2,175 member crew.
Once on board guests can indulge themselves at one of the 20 dining options that include hand-cut steaks, a teppanyaki Japanese grill and other gourmet treats from around the world. For thrill seekers, there is the world’s tallest slide at sea, a dual 43-foot rock-climbing wall a surfing simulator and a nine-story-high zip line ride.
