Review of Symphony Of The Seas deck 7 (Cabins-Helideck)
The fore-located Helideck (helicopter-landing platform) serves as Observation Deck and is accessible to passengers. This Outdoor Deck area has a helipad used in cases of medical emergencies. Here are also held outdoor Yoga classes (at surcharge).
The ship has two, aft-located Rock Climbing Walls (height 43 ft / 13 m, each with 12 routes). Both facilities are complimentary (first come first served basis) and used in 30 min sessions. Equipment is provided (shoes, helmets, harnesses). Daily are organized climbing competitions. The min age limit is 6 yo (waivers must be signed by a parent/legal guardian). Children 6-12 yo must be supervised by an adult at all times.

deck plan 7 cabins information: forward-location Oceanview rooms (category G /portside and starboard) plus the interior cabins are located above the Vitality At Sea Fitness center (on Spa deck 6 below). This means that during the gym’s operational hours, noise from exercise equipment could be an issue. All Promenade View cabins are located under either Park Cafe (deli food bar) or Giovanni’s Table (Italian restaurant) on deck 8, so during the restaurants’ operational hours noise could be an issue. All forward-facing (fore-location) oceanview staterooms feature a large slanted window overlooking the ship’s bow.
