The experience of a lifetime on the largest ship in the world
12.07.18 – 19.07.18
The infamous Symphony of the Seas by Royal Caribbean is the largest ship in the world and it really does live up to its name. I was absolutely blown away as soon as we arrived, the pure scale of this ship was absolutely astonishing! We arrived into Rome Fiumicino airport Thursday morning and got a coach to the ship, before being greeted with a glass of prosecco on arrival! There are 18 decks in total so we had a lot of exploring to do to get our bearings. The first thing we came across was the Bionic bar along the Royal Promenade which was operated by robotic arms – very cool! I think it’s safe to say we experienced nearly everything the ship had to offer. The daytime consisted of visiting the city we were docked at, sunbathing and eating. The nighttime consisted of more food, entertainment and lots of drinking!
There were five stops across the week; Naples, Barcelona, Palma, Marseille and Florence/Pisa.
Friday 13th // Naples // First Stop
Sunday 15th // Barcelona // Second Stop
I absolutely love Barcelona, it’s one of my favourite cities for it’s beautiful architecture by Antoni Gaudí; I absolutely love the coloured tiles and unusual shaped buildings. We bought tickets to visit the Sagrada Família – the never ending construction site. It was absolutely beautiful inside with the stained-glass windows and grand pillars.
Monday 16th // Palma // Third Stop
Tuesday 17th // Marseille // Fourth Stop
