Too big or just right? For fans of massive cruise ships, 2018 is a huge year
If you love traveling on cruises, then we have some good news for you. Royal Caribbean’s largest cruise ship (in the world) has officially set sail for ocean lovers all around to enjoy.
Just how big is the world’s largest cruise ship?
According to CNN.com, “The Symphony of the Seas stretches 1,188 feet long and is filled with 22 restaurants, 24 pools and 2,759 cabins. At capacity, the ship can host about 6,680 guests — plus 2,200-some crew members for a total of nearly 9,000 people.” Now, that’s a ship! With over 18 decks and 24 elevators, you have plenty of room to get to where you want to go without feeling claustrophobic. For those of you who are veterans of the cruise industry, you might want to give this ship a shot.
What is there to do after setting sell on the Symphony?
If you’re a waterpark fan, then you won’t be bored! This ship has many onboard activities such as the infamous slip ‘n’ slide, “Ultimate Abyss,” the tallest slide on any ship to date. This ride isn’t just big, fun and pink – it’s 150 feet above sea level! And if you’re not down with launching yourself down 216 feet worth of twists and turns and G- Force, then there’s plenty of other activities like Room Escape, rock climbing, glow and the dark laser tag, surfing simulators, a zip line that’s nine decks high, insane acrobatic theatre performances or you can kick back, relax and enjoy watching a music at the Royal Theatre. Not to mention the family activities such as cupcake classes, sushi making classes, arcades, games shows and Broadway at sea.
First-time cruisers, listen up!
There are many things to consider when planning your first cruise. First, you’ll need to think about which cruise is a good fit for you and your vacation plan. For example, if you’re interested in beaches versus historical lands, you’ll need to find a cruise that will sail to a port(s) where there are sunny beaches and tropical winds. Do you want to relax and cruise for several days at a time at sea or do you want to stop each day at a new port to explore? Cruisecritic.com says, “If you are uneasy about spending a full week or more aboard a ship, ease into cruising by trying out a shorter cruise; the Caribbean, the Mexican Riviera and the Bahamas are regions in which you’ll commonly find three-, four- and five-night trips.”
