Royal Caribbean has released the latest construction photos of the upcoming Symphony of the Seas.

The cruise line has released some exciting new construction photos of the ship at the STX shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France. Royal Caribbean likes to tease us the latest views of the vessel which will become the new largest cruise ship in the world once completed in 2018.

The photos you see today are from April, we also posted build photos from March so you can see how Symphony of the Seas is coming along. In the latest shots above we get to see the bridge being attached, this is just one of many sections and blocks which the make the ship one.

Over the coming months, major construction milestones are to be reached including the float out onto the water for the very first time and the fitting out phase. Symphony of the Seas will become the world’s biggest cruise ship at a total of 230,000 gross tons which is slightly larger than sister ships in the Oasis class.

Symphony of the Seas will be able to carry a maximum of 6,780 guests along with 2,175 crew members. The ship will sail its maiden cruise on April 21 and spend its inaugural season in Europe.
