  3. Symphony of the Seas
Liked the design of the class of rcl ships that had a open rear, & a promenade on 1 level & a "Central Park" above. To enhance those features with the "Symphony" seemed intriguing. Separating the main eating areas: Solarium (front top), & Windjammer (rear top) dissipated crowding. And separating two show venues: Theater in front, & Aquatic show at rear also showed nice distribution of people. SHOWS; 'Hairspray", & "Hiro", were both energetic & breathtaking. The ice show production was magnificent. Getting a reservation for the shows were difficult. FOOD: Our past 3 cruises were gourmet follies. But our doubts about the varied food menus were overcome by masters of cooking. At the bottom of the totem pole was the all day pizza. It was very edible & ate there often late. At the top was a challenging, avant-garde restaurant called "Wonderbar". The food was mysterious, the waiter took over the ordering, & the eating experience was mystifying. "Jaimes' Italian" was our favorite easily. The main dinner floors had very tasty meals. The buffet areas : Solarium, & Windjammer did the impossible. They made the buffet experience enjoyable. How a ship for 5500 people can serve wonderful meals for a week is a miracle! ART. Every nook & cranny is filled with exciting art. I always relished the next step on the ship as we discovered the next installation. BEAN COUNTERS . RCL must have fired all who tried to skimp, & save. The Symphony of the Seas is extravagantly rich in service, design, & beauty.
