If you’re a fan of Royal Caribbean art auctions, something big is on the horizon.

This April marks the maiden voyage of Royal Caribbean International’s newest ship, Symphony of the Seas, the largest cruise ship in the world.

Weighing 228,081 gross tons, the ship will claim the title of largest passenger ship from its sister, Harmony of the Seas, which weighs 226,963 gross tons. Both ships belong to Royal Caribbean International’s Oasis-class cruise ships.

“We’re excited to introduce Symphony of the Seas, our boldest composition yet, offering the best of Royal Caribbean with some new surprises for our guests to create a vacation that adventurers of all ages can enjoy together,” said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International, in a written statement.

New features aboard the ship include the two-level Ultimate Family Suite that boasts everything from a theater-style TV room and LEGO walls to whirlpools. The ship will also debut new food and beverage concepts, like a New England-style seafood restaurant, alongside favorites like Jamie’s Italian.

Travelers can also enjoy a redesigned check-in experience that eliminates lines and bypasses the counter through the use of facial recognition, bar codes, and beacons. The brand’s new mobile app will also allow for guests to check in from home.

Among the returning amenities and attractions featured aboard Symphony of the Seas are the Ultimate Abyss (the tallest dry slide at sea), the Bionic Bar where robots serve drinks, and Broadway musicals. If you enjoy cruise ship art auctions, the Symphony of the Seas will also feature one of Park West’s signature onboard art galleries.

Like its sister ships, Symphony of the Seas features the Seven Neighborhoods concept. Stroll through the tree-lined paths of Central Park, indulge your sweet tooth on the Boardwalk, go bar hopping across the Royal Promenade, or explore the multitude of other entertainment options available to you.

Symphony of the Seas will make stops in Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca, Spain; Provence, France; and Florence/Pisa, Rome, and Naples, Italy before docking in Miami this November. From there, Symphony will sail to Eastern and Western Caribbean destinations.

    My father just went on your cruise ship and told me about the wonderful artworks and auctions. I am a fine artist and was wondering how I would go about applying to have my work displayed on your cruise ship.

    Thank you,

    I just came off the Harmony of the Seas and bought a Matt Beyrer. I was interested in more of his city paintings. I am already booked on the Harmony, again for this September and on the Symphony in March of 2019. went onto your website and there are none of Matt’s city paintings on wood. How can i get more of his paintings without waiting for my next cruise?

    My wife and I have been invited to, and attended several of the past art auctions. Unfortunately for us our wall space became full!! We are ready to acquire more art and would like to know when the next auction will be held.
