Win your way onto Symphony of the Seas


Royal Caribbean International is renowned for putting on a spectacular show when it introduces a new ship to its fleet. And with Symphony of the Seas due to take a bow in just over four months’ time, Travel Weekly has teamed up with Royal to offer 100 agents and their guests the opportunity to experience Symphony for themselves on a pre-inaugural two-night trip from Barcelona.

There are two ways to get onboard the sailing from April 5-7 – either by making the most bookings in the qualifying period or – in keeping with the new arrival’s musical name – by creating your very own symphony.

And if the opportunity to be among the first to experience Symphony of the Seas isn’t incentive enough, then three of the top bookers and the overall winner of the Play your way to Symphony competition will also get to attend the glittering Travel Weekly Globe Travel Awards in January as guests of Royal Caribbean!


Amanda Darrington, sales director UK & Ireland for Royal Caribbean International, said: “We are beyond excited to launch another extraordinary competition for our Club Rewards members and look forward to inviting the 100 lucky winners to join us in Barcelona in 2018 for a two-night trip onboard the newest sound of adventure and our boldest composition yet: Symphony of the Seas.

“Travel agents can take part in the My Symphony competition in one of two ways; I will be closely watching the live leaderboard to see who our top bookers are during the competition and look forward to seeing how creative, innovative and unique travel agents are with their individual symphonies.”

Lucy Huxley, editor-in-chief of Travel Weekly Group, added: “We have worked with Royal Caribbean on a series of fantastic and innovative competitions over the years, and the My Symphony competition is no exception.

“Our travel agent readers continue to drive incredible business for Royal, and that partnership is reflected in its ongoing commitment to supporting and rewarding its Club Rewards members in this way. I can’t wait to see and hear our amazing travel trade symphonies.”


Book your way to Symphony

Fifty places are up for grabs for the Club Rewards members who make the most bookings between now and the deadline of January 4.

Every Royal Caribbean International booking made during the qualifying period will receive 10 points, with every booking for Symphony of the Seas bagging 25 points.

Bookings made via AirWaves will get double points.

Although the competition period runs until January 4, the agents who hold the top three positions on the bookers’ leaderboard on December 20 will receive an invite to the Travel Weekly Globe Travel Awards in London, including overnight accommodation and travel allowance.

Play your way to Symphony

In addition to the 50 places for top bookers, a further 50 places will be available for agents who upload the best videos of their own symphonies to by January 4.

These symphonies can be created with anything that makes a sound – from musical instruments to day-to-day objects – and one overall winner selected by our judges will not only get to experience Symphony of the Seas, but will be able to do so in style in a Suite Stateroom AND will receive an invitation to the Globes including overnight accommodation and travel allowance.

For this part of the competition, the agent who uploads the video will be deemed to be the entrant and the potential winner.

Expert ear

In addition to our judges from Royal Caribbean and Travel Weekly, you’ll also have to impress a very special guest judge with an impeccable musical pedigree.

We’ll be revealing their identity very soon, so make sure you get your creative juices flowing for your symphonic efforts!
