Symphony of the Seas - Debuts March 2018


9. You can expect expedited check-in with the app.

Another thing to love about Symphony is how fast you'll be able to get onboard and start having fun. A redesigned check-in process, still under development, will enable cruisers to design profiles and fill out check-in information on an app, then use their smartphones in conjunction with facial recognition technology to experience a smoother embarkation at the port. The only thing between the curb and the cabin will be a security checkpoint. The improved check-in is expected to be available in Barcelona and the new Royal Caribbean cruise terminal in Miami.
