Royal Caribbean Introduces Godfamily for Symphony of the Seas

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

Royal Caribbean is shaking up maritime tradition for its newest ship, Symphony of the Seas. Instead of a godmother, Symphony of Seas will be christened by actors Carlos and Alexa PenaVega, along with their 17-month-old son Ocean. It’s the first godfamily to ever christen a ship.

Back of Symphony of the Seas features a waverunner, waterslides, and pools.

Symphony of the Seas won’t be the first Royal Caribbean experience for the PenaVega family.  The couple got engaged on Oasis of the Seas and celebrated a babymoon on Allure of the Seas. In fact, Carlos PenaVega has been sailing with Royal Caribbean for almost 25 years and took his first cruise at 4 years old. His son Ocean sailed for this first time at just 13 months!

The PenaVegas will christen Symphony of the Seas when she arrives to PortMiami this November, where they will ceremoniously break a bottle of champagne and invite good luck on future voyages.

Royal Caribbean Set to Build World-Class Cruise Terminal in Miami

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

A truly iconic cruise terminal meant to serve as a home port to Royal Caribbean International ships like the Oasis of the Seas is currently in the early stages of design and development for the port of Miami. This dramatic statement piece will be a symbol of commitment to Miami by boosting huge economic benefits estimated to impact the economy by $500 million and generate about 4,000 jobs.

The creative thinking and cutting-edge design of this 170,000 square foot terminal will be a striking impression to all passengers of Royal Caribbean departing and disembarking from PortMiami. The design will reflect different views from different angles, evoking a dynamic façade at every turn. When viewed from the eastern or western side, the ‘M’ of Miami will become apparent, and an illusion of waves rising or ships sailing will seem evident from the terminal side. The port of Miami is a befitting choice to establish Royal Caribbean’s largest cruise port in the world, seeing that the city was the groundbreaking port for the company when it started almost 50 years ago.

Check out highlights of the fascinating architectural design of this world-class cruise terminal and get ready for your next cruise getaway with Royal Caribbean to/from the port of Miami in 2018.
