Royal Caribbean Symphony of the Seas
Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas is the world’s largest cruise ship and hits many marks to make it the best cruise ship for families. There are numerous room categories from interior stateroom to over the top Ultimate Family suite. Regardless of the category, the choice of activities throughout the ship keeps families busy during their 7-night cruise. On the Symphony, it is easy to navigate the Boardwalk, Central Park and Entertainment place even though it is a Mega ship. Families can participate in all the activities which are included in the price of your cruise: Flowrider surf simulators, mini-golf, zipline, carousel, Ultimate Abyss thrill slide and Splashaway Bay. If parents want some free time away from the kids, Royal Caribbean offers Adventure Ocean kids programming for ages 6 months to 17 years up to 10 p.m. offering numerous activities for kids. One of my favorite venues is the “Hairspray” production a musical romantic comedy that will make you want to get up and dance. The ship features Playmakers, a sport bar making it a great hangout for watching your favorite sports team. Other venues include Studio B and the AquaTheater, Royal Caribbean turned to the performers for help, and as a result, each space has a new show developed and inspired by the talent. Symphony of the Seas has a little something for everyone, which makes it a perfect ship for families of all kinds and people of all ages.
