, a seven-neighborhood shipboard concept, surf simulator, ice-skating rink, rock-climbing wall, waterfront AquaTheater, and several waterslides (like the 10-story-high Ultimate Abyss: the tallest slide at sea)—the line has hinted at Symphony of... Bookings are now open for Symphony of the Seas's inaugural year, which will kick off on April 21, 2018, with seven-night Mediterranean itineraries from Barcelona, calling on ports in Spain (at Palma de Mallorca), France (in Provence), and Italy... the Symphony of the Seas will then remain homeported there for the remainder of 2017 and throughout 2018.

According to website willrobotstakemyjob.com, the retail industry is “doomed”.What’s concerning about this website is not the spurious ratings it gives your chosen job, representing the danger of it being replaced by automation, but just how many people are visiting the site.Last month over 300,000 people chose to enter their job titles for the site’s “gaussian process classifier” to rate...
