230,000 GT Symphony of the Seas

Coming April 2018, 230,000 GT Symphony of the Seas.

 

Question:  Is RCCL gettting carried away?  I think these mega-ships are too big.  Although I do confess I haven't sailed on one yet.  

 

The ships in the 100,000+ GT range are just fine with me.

I agree ... 5400 people is a lot of passengers ...

Largest ship to date I have been on was Adventure Of The Sea's 137 GT and 3,114 gust.    I liked that ship a lot.  I have not been on any of the Mega-ships I just do not have interest on any of them.  I will be on the Vista in a couple weeks and will see how I like it at about 4,000 guest and in 135 tons.......so 2 tons smaller and about 900 more guest...... it may get cozy.

Apparently, cruising is becoming the "thing" to do.  I guess I can't complain since we enjoy it so much.... but is bigger really better?

M y to favorite hips are The Oasis & The Allure.  I guess that this answers your question.  I like that there are so many dining, activities and entertainment options.

Pretty soon the ships will carry more passengers than the islands they sail to have residents.
