Cruise Packing List and Best 1st Cruise Day Itinerary for the Symphony of the Seas

The Best First Day Itinerary on the Symphony of the Seas After 7 cruises, most recently on the Royal Caribbean Symphony of the Seas, I am prepared to declare myself a bit of a cruise expert. I’ve scoured each and every ship, tasted nearly all the food, did almost all […]
