All aboard! The cruise industry in booming with many new ships sailing this summer. Cruise lines are outdoing each other for the biggest and best ships.
Most major cruise lines will have a ship making a maiden voyage this summer somewhere in the world. Topping the list is the Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas which will be the world’s largest cruise ship, entertaining over 6000 clients and spanning nearly 1200 feet long with 18 decks. It’s nothing short of a floating city of entertainment, with a whopping price tag of $1.3billion. If you aren’t impressed yet, how about the ultimate two-bedroom family suite with a slide between the two floors, a sweeping 200-foot balcony and 1350 square feet of space to sleep up to eight people. The Symphony of the Seas sailed on a seven day cruise out of Barcelona in May around the Mediterranean, which will be its home sea.
