With accommodation for up to 6,780 guests and 2,100 crew members, the facts and figures for this ‘floating city’ are truly mind-boggling. Let’s take a closer look at the largest passenger ship ever built.
Launching in April 2018 ‘Symphony of the Seas’ will usurp Harmony of the Seas as the world’s largest cruise ship. It will carry 5,500 passengers (versus 5,479 on Harmony of the Seas) in 2,774 cabins (27 more than its predecessor), and has a total volume of 230,000GT (a shade bigger than Harmony’s 226,963).
