Royal Caribbean International’s latest ship Symphony of the Seas has arrived at Terminal A at PortMiami.
The world’s largest ship was deployed in Europe for its inaugural season, but has now sailed across the Atlantic to its new home.
Until Terminal A was reopened earlier this month after a revamp, it was unable to accommodate 5,500-plus passenger ships.
Previously, Oasis-class ships – Royal Caribbean’s largest vessels – sailed from Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale.
Symphony of the Seas’ official naming ceremony will take place in PortMiami on Thursday.
American actors Carlos and Alexa PenaVega will attend the event along with son Ocean.
Symphony of the Seas will sail year-round seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries from Miami from November 17.
Visits to the line’s yet-to-launch private island – Perfect Day at CocoCay in the Bahamas – will be included in the itineraries.
Michael Bayley, Royal Caribbean’s president and chief executive, said: “Symphony takes family holidaying to an all new level with energy and options never before found in one place.
“With its US homecoming this week, Symphony is changing the game for how guests of all ages holiday on our biggest and boldest vessel yet.”
