Just heard word that Symphony of the Seas is going to be debuting next year three weeks sooner than originally planned. Right in the press release, they fully acknowledge that the ship will not be completely done in time for those sailings, and that there will be workers still putting the finishing touches on the ship.
I sure hope Royal is completely transparent about that when people are casually looking for a cruise and come across one of those ones - I wouldn't be very happy if my voyage was still a construction zone. It's like ships that begin sailing after dry dock with construction crew still working on the ship. I think that they could afford to wait until it was fully finished before sailing. I know it's common, but that doesn't make it the best decision. I don't think a landside luxury hotel would open up before it was completed.
What are everyone's thoughts?
