Sea trials success for Symphony of the Seas
Royal Caribbean International’s new cruise ship Symphony of the Seas has completed sea trials in France.
Rescheduled from January after poor weather, the trials were carried out over four days near Belle-Île, an island off the coast of Brittany in north-west France.
Scheduled for delivery at the end of March, the 362-metre Symphony of the Seas has returned to the STX France shipyard in Saint-Nazaire for final outfitting.
The ship will then return to sea for more nautical performance tests.
The 230,000GT Symphony of the Seas will be the world’s largest ocean cruise ship, carrying up to 5,500 guests in 2,759 staterooms.
