Royal Caribbean's Symphony of the Seas, the world's largest cruise ship, cuts an impressive figure even out in the vast expanse of the Mediterranean Sea.

Weighing 228,000 tonnes and measuring 362m in length, the NZ$1.8 billion dollar ship is the newest and largest in the competitive cruising market.

It has over 2500 cabins - some of them have designed for families with a slide from the kids bunk room, two 85 inch TV screens and an outdoor climbing deck.

For now, the Symphony of the Seas will be based in the northern hemisphere, but Royal Caribbean Vice President Gavin Smith isn't ruling out that it may make New Zealand a port of call one day.
