What's it really like on the world's largest cruise ship?

The world’s largest cruise ship, Symphony of the Seas, set sail from Barcelona on her maiden voyage this weekend, ahead of a summer in the Mediterranean. Royal Caribbean International’s record-breaking vessel is 362 meters long (imagine the length of four football pitches) and has a volume of 228,081 gross tons – 1,088 more than its nearest rival, her sister ship, Harmony of the Seas.

She also has 12 more staterooms than Harmony, taking her total to 2,759, meaning she can accommodate 5,518 guests at double capacity - that’s three and a half times more than the QE2.

Symphony is the 25th Royal Caribbean ship, and the first to have an ‘Ultimate Family Suite’, which is already booked for £65,000 this Christmas. It boasts its own slide, from the second floor kids’ bedroom to the living room below, an air hockey table and a private cinema with a popcorn machine. The wow factor extends outside, with a table tennis court and a whirlpool.
