A few years ago on the beautiful Mariner, my wife and I, invited on a FAM and after the bridge tour with the Captain of the Mariner. Now I am even more excited to see the changes being made. I'm ready to sell it and sail on it.

Are any of the staterooms getting updated or refreshed during this refurb? Or is it mostly public areas?

We’re excited to introduce the industry’s very first Godfamily for Symphony of the Seas— actors Carlos and Alexa PenaVega, and their 17-month old son, Ocean. They accepted our Godfamily invitation while the family was onboard Harmony of the Seas to film Hallmark Channel’s “Love at Sea”. The PenaVegas will have the honor of christening Symphony of the Seas upon its arrival to PortMiami this November, ceremoniously breaking a bottle of champagne and inviting good luck on future voyages. of the Seas + Carlos PenaVega+ Alexa PenaVega + Ocean PenaVega= the first ever Godfamily.

Awe cute! My daughter still needs a godparent can I ask the Allure of the seas to be hers in October since it will be her first cruise? 😂

I'd love to see that christening. Was on the inaugural sailing out of Barcelona on 7 April. Beautiful ship - awesome crew <3

Love how you asked the PenaVega family to be the first Godfamily for the Symphony of the Seas.

Each year, Royal Caribbean volunteers by helping a school or local building within our community. Here, at Royal Caribbean, we call it GIVE Day. This year, we volunteered and brought our dear friends and family to Jesse J. McCrary, Jr. Elementary School. The sun was shining and by the end of the day, the school was completely repainted and glowing with over 10,000 plants on campus. Always remember to give back - as the feeling of generosity of your time, not money is truly priceless! #RCLGives ... See MoreSee Less

Just got back from cruise on the Jewel. EVERYWHERE we went, local people talked about Royal. They pointed out where the Adventure had been docked. They thanked us for coming. THEY thanked us for cruising on Royal. Kudos to RCCL.

There's nothing to make you feel better than giving back. It should be a pre-requisite for everything we do. WTG! #LoyaltoRoyal

Just another reason I'm #LoyaltoRoyal
