Jewel in the “Crown” as Symphony headlines 2018-2019 Caribbean programme

Symphony of the Seas, Royal Caribbean's newest, and largest, ship will be teaming up with Oasis-class sister ship Allure of the Seas in November 2018 to offer island-hopping adventures through the Caribbean from Miami.

Symphony, being delivered in April 2018, will spend her inaugural summer season exploring the Mediterranean calling on ports in Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Spain; Provence, France; Florence/Pisa, Rome and Naples, Italy.

She then switches to Miami in early November to begin seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries from Miami’s state-of-the-art Terminal A, dubbed the “Crown of Miami”.

Symphony of the Seas will claim the title of the world’s largest – and most adventure filled – cruise ship, offering 28 more staterooms than her newest sister ship Harmony of the Seas and encompassing 230,000 gross registered tons. 

Touting new features and amenities for guests, she also will boast all the groundbreaking innovations and thrilling experiences that have garnered world-wide recognition for Harmony of the Seas.

Among the award-winning and acclaimed favourites are the distinct seven-neighborhood concept, imaginative and sophisticated dining, Bionic Bar robot bartenders powered by Makr Shakr, Broadway-caliber entertainment, the iconic waterfront AquaTheater, the Perfect Storm trio of waterslides, and Ultimate Abyss – the tallest slide at sea.

Crown of Miami, a 170,000 sq-ft terminal, scheduled for completion for the arrival of Symphony and Allure, will be the most innovative cruise facility in the US with an expected $500m in revenue and the addition of 4,000 jobs to Miami-Dade County.

It is anticipated that Royal Caribbean Cruises will generate at least 1.8 million passenger moves at PortMiami, representing 30 percent of the port’s projected passenger traffic.
