Royal Caribbean debuts cutting-edge productions in the air, under water, on ice and on stage onboard Symphony of the Seas.

The new show ‘Flight: Dare to Dream,’ is "a journey through the past, present and future of air travel and space exploration", which according to the company will "make history as one of the most ambitious stage productions to date." Passengers take off on adventure through time, chronicling milestones in aeronautics, beginning with the first ever leisure voyage to Mars and ending with a homage to Wright Brothers’ first flight at Kitty Hawk.

Royal Caribbean Productions' ‘Flight: Dare to Dream’ boasts cutting-edge 3D flying technology, automation and video, bringing them all to the 1,401-seat Royal Theater. Space and zero gravity are simulated as actors “float” within a replica of the International Space Station (ISS). The detailed design of Royal Caribbean’s ISS has been informed by Astronaut Clayton C. Anderson. Anderson lived 167 days in space and completed a total of 38 h 28 min over 6 spacewalks in 2 separate missions.

Royal Caribbean Productions is the first to consult with an astronaut who lived in space for live theatrical production. High-impact choreography also take form in 3D flying with a recreation of the Wright Flyer which will take off into the house, and the set piece will feature a 22 ft wingspan and single seat “cockpit.”
