Symphony of the Seas was floated out of dry dock at STX France on Friday 9 June (today’s mega-vessels are too large to launch).
When she joins the Royal Caribbean fleet next April, Symphony of the Seas will hold the title of “world’s largest cruise ship,” offering 28 more staterooms than her newest sister ship, Harmony of the Seas, and encompassing 230,000 gross registered tons, 3,000 more than Harmony of the Seas.
