Could This Be the Most Awesome Family Cruise Suite Ever?

Ultimate Family Suite Symphony of the Seas

Royal Caribbean has released images of its newest ship, Symphony of the Seas. And even as big fans of the cruise line’s family-friendly offer, we couldn’t help by be wowed by the look of their two-level family suite.

Aptly named the Ultimate Family Suite we think this is going to take some beating. The accommodation comes with a slide from the kid’s bedroom down to the living room below; a floor-to-ceiling LEGO wall, an air-hockey table and hidden nooks for chilling.

As if that’s not enough to get the kids bouncing off the walls as soon as they board, this awesome suite also has its own 3D cinema theatre-style TV room, complete with popcorn machine and multiple gaming systems.

On the 212 square foot wrap-around balcony there’s a pool table, a ‘climbing experience’ and a full-size whirlpool with ocean views to give parents and kids somewhere to relax after a busy day on land or just enjoying the ships many family-friendly activities.

The 1,346 square feet accommodation is designed for up to eight guests with two bedrooms – perfect for large families and multi-generational groups.
