Semi-live Pre-opening cruise Symphony of the Seas

Recommended Posts

While on Harmony last year, the many of the "ceiling" sections in the Solarium were ripping, and the crew would have to cut them off as they made quite a loud flapping noise. This did not appear to be an issue on Oasis. how are they on Symphony?

I thought I read somewhere that Symphony had 3 main dinning rooms with different theme/decor but basically the same food. Did I dream this? I only see mention of one main dinning room on the deck plans that encompass 3 floors.

I am curious to know...do they have those Wow bands on Symphony? I am sailing in June and was very keen to get one!

 

Yes the WOW bands are on Symphony.

Love the review and photos. What is the restaurant across from Johnny Rocket's with all the wood? Also, is El Loco Fresh like Sabor? Is it a sit down restaurant or fast food? Thanks.

 

Playmakers sports bar.

 

Different than Sabor. Fast food, no table service.

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere to get over this issue they had gone back to the original material on Oasis so glass I presume.

Any idea on pricing for Hooked?

 

 

 

$42.90 for dinner and $20.90 for lunch in my planner

They don’t even bring your food to the table in Playmakers??

Does this include gratuities or will it be added on to this price?

The different themes are only on previous Oasis class ships - Symphony seems to have dealt a death blow to the Dynamic Dining idea which the separate themes supported.

According to the RCI app there's no cost. It lists the times the venue will be available - seems to be mornings only.

I am currently on board and confirm no cost for laser tag and the times have varied throughout the cruise, some mornings, some afternoons and yesterday if was at 7pm

All prices aboard are in dollars.

I'm coming into this late, and by the time I read my own message I may find the answer, but on a -pre cruise like this, do they tell you upfront about anything that might not be done yet, work in progress, or opening soon items?

Bar Area. Plenty of tvs and bar games

Corn hole set up in front of TVs and couches where people are drinking, I see no possible problem here. :evilsmile:

They were referring to El Loco Fresh when they mentioned Fast Food

I've not seen Barbeque Baby Ribs or Mushroom Risotto on any other RC MDR menu.

 

 

I'll definitely be watching for reviews of the ribs and then wings from the sports bar.

Playmakers is intriguing for me. I look forward to checking it out on the October TA. Won’t be a lot of US sporting events outside of the late late late night hours until the second week. But we will have the World Series, Football, Hockey and Basketball.
