Symphony of the Seas

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!

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.

Unfortunately we didn’t get off the ship on the last day for Florence/Pisa however I am hoping to visit this city on a different visit!
Over the week we only had one day at sea during Naples and Barcelona so we definitely kept very busy on and off the ship! There is unlimited food, activities, shows, a theatre, an ice rink, bars, clubs, casino, games room, entertainment, Central Park, water slides, a zip line, swimming pools, a spa.. the list is endless!!
I would absolutely recommend a cruise for large groups or families as you have everything you need at your finger tips and it’s a great chance to see multiple destinations in one holiday. Big shoutout to Royal Caribbean for an incredible experience and one I’ll never forget!
