is throwing itself a blow-out anniversary party, and you’re all invited.

The -based cruise giant has revealed plans for a “50 Years Bold Birthday Cruise” to celebrate its 50th anniversary, which is taking place this year.

Kicking off in Miami on November 2, 2019, the one-week voyage will take place on Royal Caribbean’s new Symphony of the Seas — the world’s largest cruise ship.

Billed as the “biggest, boldest birthday party ever,” the cruise will feature special events and surprise performers, according to the line. It’ll also include a stop at Royal Caribbean’s soon-to-be-revamped private island, CocoCay.

Royal Caribbean was founded in 1968 by a trio of Norwegian shipping companies. Its first ship, Song of , began sailing in 1970.

From simple beginnings, Royal Caribbean has grown into the largest cruise line in the world by ship capacity and is known for the biggest, most amenity-filled vessels in the industry. It now operates 25 ships, seven of which rank among the ten biggest cruise vessels in the world.

Unveiled in March, the 228,081-ton Symphony of the Seas is built on the same platform as Royal Caribbean’s 2-year-old Harmony of the Seas, the previous size leader in cruising. But it eclipses its sibling by more than 1,000 tons and offers several new features.

Among the additions are a first-of-its-kind, two-deck-high family suite with a slide between floors, a revamped Boardwalk amusement area, a new laser tag attraction and a new-for-Royal Caribbean seafood restaurant. Symphony also has more cabins than Harmony.

Symphony can hold up to 6,680 passengers and sails with a crew of 2,200, meaning that on busy weeks it could be home to nearly 9,000 people.
