PORT CANAVERAL, Florida (NBC) – The world’s largest cruise ship is on its inaugural voyage from the U.S.
Royal Caribbean’s “Symphony of the Seas” departed Port Canaveral, Florida on Thursday.
It holds nearly 7,000 passengers and 2,200 crew members. To put it in perspective, that’s double the passenger capacity of the cruise ship docked in Norfolk earlier this week.
The “Symphony of the Seas” is enroute to Miami, where it will be based.
It has water slides, a surfing simulator, rock climbing wall, a carousel, a see-through glass pool, laser tag arena, and two-story family suites.
