RCL unveils HUGE US$97 million Voyager of the Seas revamp

Royal Caribbean has unveiled details of its US$97 million upgrades to Voyager of the Seas featuring a fresh lineup of first-to-market features.

From The Perfect Storm duo of racer waterslides to the reinvigorated Vitality Spa and redesigned kids and teens spaces, Voyager will boast a new combination of experiences aimed at giving guests an unforgettable family holiday in the Asia Pacific.

Beginning Oct. 21, the newly transformed ship will set sail on a series of three- to five-night Southeast Asia itineraries from Singapore, followed by a season down under with nine- to 12-night South Pacific cruises from Sydney, Australia, starting on Nov. 30.

“Royal Caribbean is an innovator in holidays, and the newly amplified Voyager of the Seas is no exception,” says Susan Bonner, managing director for Royal Caribbean International Australia and New Zealand.

“From pulse-raising adventures down high-speed waterslides on The Perfect Storm or going head to head at Battle for Planet Z laser tag – both firsts for the Australian market – to unwinding and indulging in the brand new Vitality Spa, Voyager of the Seas offers unforgettable experiences for the whole family to enjoy.”

Voyager of the Seas will feature new experiences aimed at family travellers, including Battle for Planet Z laser tag, a top-to-bottom redesign of children dedicated spaces to bring a modern, free-play approach, an updated ‘hangout’ for teens, an enhanced Vitality Spa and Fitness Centre, refreshed Solarium plus loads more.

Rooms will also get a revamp, with 72 new inside and balcony staterooms, an exclusive Suite Lounge and outdoor area and a revamped Diamond Lounge.

The reimagined ship will feature the new Royal Caribbean International mobile app, where travellers can soon check in for their cruise holiday from their phone, and once on board, the app will deliver an array of capabilities. From exploring and planning activities for each day of the itinerary, and viewing onboard expenses, to booking and managing dining, shore excursion and show reservations, guests will be able to seamlessly transition into holiday mode.

Voyager will be the fourth ship reimagined as part of the Royal Amplified fleet modernisation effort built on research and guest feedback. The cruise line’s investment of more than $1 billion spans 10 ships in four years and touches every facet of the guest experience. Introducing a robust variety of bold adventures meant to appeal to every generation, the program is a representation of Royal Caribbean’s passion for innovation, relentless attention to detail and commitment to delivering unforgettable holidays.
