Royal Carribean Cruises launched the world’s biggest cruise ship, taking 36 months and 4,700 shipbuilders to complete.

The ship – named Symphony of the Seas – will be able to fit 5,518 guests at double occupancy in 2,759 staterooms, including 28 additional balcony rooms that overlook the ocean.

The ship will also sport seven themed “neighbourhoods” with entertainment such as laser tag, escape rooms, a candy-filled land called Sugar Beach, and the tallest slide at sea.

Royal Carribean is not the only cruise group upping the game for large groups and delegates. Recently, Dream Cruises introduced an on-board Japanese tea appreciation sessions where delegates can learn from experts through a series of workshops.

Guests will also be invited to partake in a tea quiz game, or participate in blind tasting sessions to differentiate types of Japanese tea based on their colour, fragrance and taste.

Japanese entertainment will feature alongside such as sanshin (aka Okinawan Banjo) performances, kimono-tying sessions, paper doll-making, Japanese flower arrangements, and calligraphy.
