The newly constructed Symphony of the Seas has taken over as the world's largest cruise ship.

Last week, the world's largest cruise ship officially joined the Royal Caribbean fleet.

At 362 meters long, 66 meters wide and 70 meters high, Royal Caribbean’s new 228,081 GRT Symphony of the Seas boasts 18 decks total with capacity for 6,800 passengers in 2,747 staterooms and is crewed by more than 2,000 staff members. 

The new mega ship was built by French shipbuilder STX France and takes the world’s largest crown from sister ship Harmony of the Seas delivered in 2016 from the same shipyard. The next vessel in the Oasis Class is expected to be delivered in 2021.
