Matt Hochberg

Happy New Year! The first week of 2017 had plenty of Royal Caribbean news, and we have it all summarized for you in this week's round-up!

Earlier this week, it became apparent that there will be no DreamWorks characters on Symphony of the Seas.

Royal Caribbean confirmed via Twitter that Symphony of the Seas will not have DreamWorks characters or shows onboard its newest ship.  This is a change from the other three Oasis class ships, which all featured DreamWorks characters.

There is no indication as of yet why Symphony of the Seas will not offer the DreamWorks characters.
