The fourth ship in the Oasis class is Symphony of the Seas. Symphony is another marvelous neighborhood concept ship, and a cruise on this ship is well worth the money. You will never run out of things to do on the Symphony of the Seas. If you plan to travel with family or children, there is truly something for everyone to enjoy. The children’s clubs are wonderful, the sports activities are plentiful. In the evenings, the shows, comedy, and musicals will truly wow you. In addition to the included foods, there are delicious pay options worth treating yourself to.

If you have never treated yourself to a spa day on a Royal Caribbean ship, the Symphony of the Seas has a wonderful spa. While it is true that the spa services are not inexpensive, you’re on vacation and this is a wonderful way to pamper yourself. One bit of advice, they do try to sell you products. This is easily avoided. Before your treatment begins, simply tell them that you picked up some of whatever it is they are selling on your last cruise. We have found this works like a charm, each and every time. Problem solved.

Remember that reserving things like spa appointments, meals at the pay restaurants, and a variety of entertainment are strongly encouraged. The best time slots book fast, and once the shows are full you could miss them entirely. You can look in your cruise planner online for pricing to drop on popular items like the drink pages. Before buying a package, consider what is in each package and what you typically consume to determine if it is worth it or not.
