Royal Caribbean finally got its hands on Symphony of the Seas, and the ship has inherited the title of world’s largest cruise ship.

The ceremony that took place at the STX France shipyard in St. Nazaire, France on Friday is the culmination of 36 months of construction on the fourth Oasis-class vessel in the fleet, which will make its way to Miami this fall.

On hand for the flag-changing ceremony marking the official delivery of the vessel were Michael Bayley, President and CEO of Royal Caribbean International, Richard Fain, Chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., and Laurent Castaing, General Manager of STX France.

“Symphony of the Seas is the latest example of how our people work to push the envelope of innovation with each new ship,” said Fain. “The Oasis Class has been a trend-setting design, but the team has evolved the design to build on that success to provide even more incredible family adventures. We’re thankful to have a partner in STX France that is every bit as ambitious as we are about building technologically advanced ships.”
