Cruise company Royal Caribbean has released sailing itineraries for its new fleet super-ship. The Symphony of the Seas will be embarking on her inaugural cruises around the Mediterranean Sea from 21 April 2018 onwards.
Royal Caribbean says the currently under construction vessel will be based in the Spanish port of Barcelona for her debut season. From there she will offer seven day cruises around the northern shores of the Med with ports of call at Palma de Mallorca in Spain and Pisa and Naples in Italy.
The voyages will include a stop en route at one of the main ports in the Provence region of France. Passengers will also have the opportunity of trips to Rome and Florence as well as starting their voyages from Rome.
After the Symphony of the Seas finishes the summer sojourn in the Mediterranean, she will be heading across the Atlantic. The itineraries show she will be based in Miami and from November will be utilised on Caribbean cruises.
The STX France shipyard in St Nazaire is building the Symphony of the Seas. She is an Oasis class vessel and will be the fourth in this exclusive genre of cruise ship.
The Symphony is loaded up with entertainment and dining venues. Eateries range from a steak house and a sushi and sashimi café to a Mexican cantina while the Splashaway Bay aquapark, the FlowRider high-surf simulator and plunging into the Ultimate Abyss will satisfy thrill seekers of all ages.
