The newest member of Royal Caribbean International’s Oasis class of ships, Symphony of the Seas, is now one step closer to full completion as its April 2018 debut approaches. With the exterior now complete, the ship was floated out of its dry dock at STX France shipyard to begin the next phase of interior construction.

Once completed, the cruise ship will feature a length of 362 meters and a width of 47 meters and will be able to accommodate 6,870 passengers and 2,100 crew members.

Symphony of the Seas will claim the title of the world’s largest cruise ship, offering 28 more staterooms than its sister ship Harmony of the Seas and encompassing 230,000 gross registered tons, according to Royal Caribbean.

The cruise vessel will spend its inaugural summer season exploring the Mediterranean. The ship is expected to call at ports in Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca, Spain; Provence, France; Florence/Pisa, Rome and Naples, Italy.

It will then arrive to Miami in early November to begin Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries.
