  1. Symphony is on her way to Spain for a technical dry dock in June 2021. Navigator of the Seas will head to Cadiz for dry dock in late July 2021. Odds are, Navigator will head to California post dry dock in September. Symphony heads to Cyprus in July 2021 for crew pickup before heading back stateside for September 2021 resumption. Looking at port bookings, Mariner looks to relocate to Miami to be RCG’s first ship back stateside come August. She will operate 3/4 night market until repositioning to Port Canaveral in October, at which point Freedom will take over 3/4 night cruises
  2. I know we all have the same crystal ball but a lot of you here know much more of the up-to-the-minute stuff than we do. DH and I are booked on Symphony out of Miami in late October. As of today, what do you think the chances are of it sailing as planned, and of us NOT having to mask-up onboard? We both just got our 2nd vaccine shots yesterday so we're crossing our fingers that we won't have to worry about flying and cruising in hard-to-socially-distance planes and ship hallways. We're thinking about rescheduling to Sept 2022 but worry that we're being premature about it since final payment
  3. I'm trying to decide which of the 2 ships would be better for a 6 year old. I know the Amped Oasis has an updated Adventure Ocean, and what may look like an updated water park. I'm wondering if Symphony has any advantages for a 6 year old? Maybe a larger Adventures Oceans? I'm asking fully knowing that anyone at that age will not know any better. Although it's not in our immediate plans, we may consider leaving him for a few hours here and there under staff supervision while we enjoy some adult time.
  4. Can anyone tell me the bed placement of these two cabins on the Symphony of the Seas . 14182 and 14184. Thanks so much.
  5. Curious if anyone has stayed in these suites. I noticed they are below the villa suite. Was noise an issue in the room or on the balcony from the room above? Thank you.
  6. Hi everyone, We are a retired UK couple who have been cruising for 20 years. We usually choose small ships, but our TA has told us that we should try the Symphony of the Seas if only once, just for the experience. He knows that it's not our normal type of cruise, but says that we should try it. We do understand that this ship is designed for family activities, but will take pleasure from watching the young folk trying all the sports! So where do we start? We have never cruised with RCI. Can anyone tell me where we can discover answers to all our questions?
  7. Tonight at 9 pm the Smithsonian channel will air the 2019 Mighty Ships episode featuring Symphony. Some other cruise line ships will be featured this afternoon prior to 9 pm. Please ignore this if there is an existing topic - I couldn't find one.
  8. Can someone tell me the differences between the two ships. Grease is on Harmony and Hairspray on Symphony correct? I've been on Harmony. Which shows, activities are better on these two ships? Thank you so much. Booking for my son and daughter in law.
  9. We will have the Ultimate Dining and staying Star Class on Symphony of the Seas so have access to all dining including Coastal Kitchen. What have been your favorite dishes/restaurants? I have been looking over the menus and there looks to be so much foodie goodness!
  10. I have just had approved by the ideas Lego website a project for a Lego model of the new Symphony of the Seas...the model is 57 cm long version of the new ship which is launched next year. For Lego to consider the production of the model they need to see 10000 "supporters" say they like the model....it means you have to join the site to vote for it. I would love to see a model on board the retail units of the ships since there is very I have seen which are models of the RCL ships I have sailed on. The Lego site is https://ideas.lego.com/dashboard the project is called "Beautiful S
  11. I did a search and found nothing. I know that RCI has cancelled all cruises thru April 30, but is there information anywhere about getting Symphony ready,or is the crew returning, or will they start up with only shorter cruises????? Trying to find out before Final Payment, Jan. 31st.
  12. I was on the phone with my TA and we were told we would have to call and talk to Revenue on Monday. Anyone heard of anything like this? Symphony is showing plenty of availability. This meets all the requirements of L&S - same week next year, Caribbean and same ship and same room category. Anyone have this issue? If so, was it resolved?
  13. Hello, I thought both bathrooms had walk-in showers in the Star Loft suites, but I just watched a video of the other Star Loft and the upper bath was a bathtub with shower. I was wondering if anyone had any photos or could verify the shower style for me in cabin #1724 - overlooks the back of the ship. Thanks!!
  14. I know this has been addressed before but this is my first cruise on Symphony of the Seas with y family of 4. On other ships i haven been on with RCCL, there were pull down pullman beds from the ceiling for the children. I see there is a couch in some interior rooms. Does that convert into a bed?
  15. Good Afternoon everyone I just booked Star Class on Symphony. This is my first time in Star Class and I know there’s a wealth of knowledge on here. Are there any tips on things I should utilize? I’m open to literally any and all tips, hints, advice, do and don’ts! Eastern Caribbean Itinerary: Perfect Day CocoCay, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten. Ship: Symphony of the Seas Room: 2 Bedroom Aqua Theater
  16. Does any one have copies of the main dining room . I'm trying to plan what nights I want to go to Chops & Izumi & want to go on a night I dont see any thing I might eat in the main dining room . Also what nights are formal on a eastern 7 day cruise. Thanks
  17. Symphony of the Seas will be featured on the new season of Mighty Cruise Ships airing this Sunday on the Discovery channel in Canada. Not sure if it’s being aired or has been in the US.
  18. I'm looking for information on this cabin as it is open for our B2B sailing we have coming up. It looks like there is a big empty space beside it and while I know its not just an empty space, can anyone tell me what it is? Service area for crew? Is it a noisy cabin because of this space? Will we hear doors slamming throughout the night? I've searched for reviews online but don't see any so that might be a good thing. I don't want to book it and then find its a noisy area/cabin. TIA for any information you can give.
  19. Hello fellow cruisers! Just booked Symphony from 10/23-10/30/21, eastern leg. Hoping that itinerary is far out enough for everything to be figured out 🤞🏼 Looking ahead at flights home. My wife and I have learned that we do best when we disembark and head home right away; no lollygagging around town. Delta has a 7:55a departure back to MSP. Is this feasible for cruisers? Looks like the drive from port to the airport is about 15 minutes. Never flown in/out of Miami, so I don't know what security is like (pre COVID). American has a 8:35a departure if necessary, but we have
  20. We were able to lift and shift a cruise to the Symphony for next summer. We received a killer deal, so I was considering upgrading to the specialty dining package for this cruise. The restaurants look interesting, especially Wonderland. My son saw that and said HE would pay for us to go. lol We do love to eat on the cruises and I diet for months getting ready to eat whatever I want on the cruise. So eating is a big focus for us. We have boys too, so it is their ONLY focus in life! We have never been disappointed with the MDR, but there have been a lot of times when the meals w
  21. Do you know which rooms on deck 11 Boardwalk would not be obstructed by the Abyss slide? Want to see the sea:)
  22. Hi...starting to think of dining options on the Symphony....I was watching a youtube video where they specified a "Mongolia Stir Fry Station"... My question is: is the station there every night on the Symphony or is it just one night (Theme) on the cruise. My husband LOVES this..He has had it twice on different RCL cruises and it is one of the first questions he asks when we board. Thanks a bunch...
  23. Hello, Could you give me advice? I have an Owners suite booked on Symphony 2022 and I am concidering to changing it to Crowne Loft suite, current price 10500€. Price of Owners suite is now about 11000€. I have originally paid only 6000€ for my OS. Can I change the cabin class from OS to cheaper crowne Loft without extra money? Or will they compare the current price to what I have paid and ask me to pay 4500€ more?
  24. Does anyone know what the studio rooms look like, please? I'm looking to book for next year as a solo but can't find any pictures or information about it. Thanks [emoji41] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
