Symphony of the Seas which is currently under construction in France has moved to the next phase and floated out onto the water for the very first time.

The fourth Oasis-Class ship which will be the worlds biggest once it enters service in Spring 2018 has hit a major construction milestone. Symphony of the Seas was floated out of its dry dock for the very first time. The ship will begin fitting out all the interior spaces on board as the vessel begins to look and feel like a reality.

Royal Caribbean released some new construction photos of the ship before and after leaving the dry dock. We also posted previous construction photos last month so you can see how far construction has come along.
