Royal Caribbean International’s Voyager of the Seas will head to the South Pacific with new waterslides, an enhanced spa area, additional accommodation and many other improved amenities this October following a US$97 million Royal Amplified upgrade.
Voyager of the Seas will be the fourth ship to be reimagined as part of the Royal Amplified fleet modernisation initiative, which will see Royal Caribbean investing more than US$1 billion to enhance every element of the guest experience on 10 ships. However, she will be the first in the South Pacific to debut the new onboard features.
Included on the line-up of new amenities is the glow-in-the-dark Battle for Planet Z laser tag venue and three-storey-high The Perfect Storm duo of racer waterslides, which are located at the aft of the ship alongside attractions like the FlowRider surf simulator, rock-climbing wall and mini-golf.
The dedicated spaces for younger passengers will also be redesigned. Voyager of the Seas will be fitted with her first nursery for babies and toddlers, as well as a space for those aged between three and five years old. Meanwhile, passengers aged three to twelve will benefit from Adventure Ocean being reconfigured into an open layout and teenagers will have access to a new outdoor deck.
Other new additions will include 72 inside and balcony staterooms, a Suite Lounge and outdoor area exclusively for guests in Grand Suites and above, and a Diamond Lounge for members of Royal Caribbean’s Crown & Anchor Society loyalty programme. Following a relocation to the aft of the ship, Voyager of the Seas’ enhanced Vitality Spa and Fitness Center will offer a signature menu of services, including massages, acupuncture, manicures, fitness classes and personal training. The adults-only solarium will also be refreshed.
Guests will also be able to use the new Royal Caribbean International mobile app to complete check-in via their smartphone before boarding the ship. Once onboard, they will be able to use features to plan activities, view onboard expenses, manage dining, shore excursion and show reservations.
Voyager of the Seas will resume service on 21 October, embarking on a series of three- to five-night Southeast Asia itineraries from Singapore. On 30 November, she will then sail a season of nine- to twelve-night South Pacific cruises from Sydney, Australia.
