Upgrade your family cruise next year and opt for a stay in the newly launched Ultimate Family Suite. Only available onboard Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas, the family suite offers two floors of fun and activities for the whole family.

Like something out of the Disney Channel Movie Smart House, the Ultimate Family Suite is a child’s fantasy come true. Kids slide down from their bedroom to the living room in a tube slide and climb back up via the floor-to-ceiling LEGO wall.

Play air hockey with the kids or hide and seek in the various small nooks and corners hidden throughout the room. Parents enjoy the luxury treatment and the special attention of their personal Genie, or butler. Enjoy premium amenities and services during your stay and make unforgettable memories with the kids.

With so much available from the fun and comfort of your family suite, it may be difficult to tear the kids away until you tell them about the activities onboard. Get out and about on the upper deck in search of a wide variety of family-friendly activities — tailor-made for kids and teens by the award-winning Adventure Ocean Youth Program.

Zip line with friends, try your hand at surfing on the FlowRider wave generators or splash around in Splashaway Bay. Thanks to the LEGO wall back at the suite, you and the kids will be pros on rock-climbing walls. Engage in some friendly competition on the basketball court or mini golf green during tournaments and pick-up games.

If the Ultimate Family Suite isn’t your speed, opt for the Royal Suite class. This new level offers three tiers of rooms perfect for families of four or more looking for a luxury experience. Enjoy the elegant designs, comfort and spaciousness of the rooms and balcony views.

Check out the Symphony of the Seas’ updated itinerary including new shows, restaurants and voyages through the Caribbean, Bahamas, Bermuda, Europe and the Mediterranean. Indulge yourself and your family in the many offerings available onboard the newly upgraded vessel.
