MS Symphony of the Seas was the largest ever passenger ship to be constructed by gross tonnage (228,081) before being dethroned by Wonder of the Seas. Measuring 1,188 (362m) feet in length.

symphony of the seas cruises is about five times the size of the infamous Titanic. The vessel can accommodate up to 6,680 passengers at maximum capacity in addition to a 2,200 person crew. In terms of length alone, if the Symphony on the Seas were balanced on its stern it would rise higher than all but two of the tallest buildings in Europe.

symphony of the seas cruise ship may be a huge ship, but its carefully designed deck plan is easier to navigate than that of many other smaller cruise ships. The reason Symphony of the Seas is because Royal Caribbean listened to feedback and kept the passenger experience top of mind when designing it.

Complaints that ranged from the omission of a pool in the Solarium on Harmony of the Seas to difficult-to-reach cabinetry in staterooms or no way to get omelets in the Windjammer Marketplace have all been resolved on Symphony. Royal Caribbean has even brought back “Hairspray” by popular demand, giving the production a total refresh for a new (or returning) audience.

Symphony comes with all of the perks of big a mega-ship but nearly none of the pitfalls. Like other Oasis-class ships, Symphony of the Seas features the easily navigable neighborhood concept, which includes Central Park, Entertainment Place, and the Boardwalk.

A brilliant passenger flow, plenty of signage, and an intuitive sense of orientation mean that despite being massive and with a lot of symphony of the seas suites, it’s hard to get lost for long onboard. Other byproducts of size, like pollution or waste, are offset by the line’s Save the Waves program and by constant improvements to ship engineering. symphony of the seas ship, like many of the line’s ships, is “zero to landfill” meaning no waste is left behind. A new program has banned plastic straws and Symphony is actually 25 percent more energy-efficient than its fleet mate Allure of the Seas.symphony of the seas current location
