Grandeur getting an upgrade

Royal Caribbean ship to spend five weeks in Cadiz dry dock for revamp

By Cherie Rowlands |

A five-week, US$48 million revitalisation gets underway for Royal Caribbean International’s Grandeur of the Seas in Cadiz, Spain, this month.

The bow-to-stern revamp at the Navantia shipyard includes new dining venues, loyalty lounges, nursery facilities, technology upgrades with ship-wide wifi and a refresh of all furniture, carpets, upholstery and staterooms.

"This latest revitalisation is part of our pursuit to continually raise the bar to deliver the best experience for our guests. Coupled with itineraries to exciting global destinations and friendly and engaging Gold Anchor Service from every staff and crew member, these virtually new ships will continue to deliver the Royal Advantage," said Lisa Bauer, senior VP of global sales and marketing at Royal Caribbean International. "With the completion of our fleet-wide revitalisation and enhancement program, every ship will be our best ship."

Refurbishment is due to be completed on 31 May after which Grandeur of the Seas departs on an 11-night Mediterranean round trip from Barcelona before spending the summer offering itineraries from Venice, Italy and Provence, France.

Grandeur of the Seas is the third of Royal Caribbean International’s Vision Class ships to receive an extensive revamp, following earlier upgrades to Rhapsody of the Seas and Splendour of the Seas.
