The Symphony of the Seas is marginally larger than the previous record holder Harmony of the Seas owned by the same shipping company. In fact, all Oasis-class ships — Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas being the other two — in operation by the Royal Caribbean International have held the Guinness World Records for the world’s largest cruise ship.

The ship carries the legacy of Harmony of the Seas and has The Ultimate Abyss, two FlowRider surf simulators, a zip line, twin 40-foot rock climbing walls, ice skating rink and the AquaTheater. Notably, though, it has 28 more staterooms than its sister ship.

Among the entertainment options aboard the luxurious ship include Broadway show “Hairspray,” original production “Flight” that is a humorous look at the history for flight, skating show “1977” and in the AquaTheater, a show titled “HiRo.” Apart from that, a laser tag arena is there which the shipping company touts as the “world’s largest”.

The food and dining options include a Mexican food concept joint called El Loco Fresh and casual seafood option called Hooked. Apart from these, the usual mainstay of the Harmony of the Seas will also be at the Symphony, for example, fusion food venue Wonderland, Jamie Oliver

Apart from these, the usual mainstay of the Harmony of the Seas will also be at the Symphony, for example, fusion food venue Wonderland, Jamie Oliver's Italian dining venue, Japanese cuisine at Izumi, the Chops Grill steakhouse and 150 Central Park, which serves seasonal American cuisine.

The ship is built by the French shipbuilder STX and it took two years to construct. It is the 13th ship which the company has built for Royal Caribbean. The Symphony of the Seas will debut its cruising services from the already sold out April 7 sailing.
