The Explorer of the Seas, part of the Royal Caribbean International family, is to set sail with a brand new look this summer, reports Express.
An impressive revamp
Following an impressive $110 million (£89 million) revamp, the vessel boasts an array of global culinary delights, as well as fun for the whole family.
This summer the Explorer will dock at some of the finest ports across Italy and Greece, giving passengers a taste of Mediterranean Europe.
However, even once the adventure on land has ended, the ship promises to offer an experience to remember at sea.
Impressive Technology on the cruise
The Explorer’s new $110m – or roughly £8,000,000- boost has transformed the liner into a perfect family escape.
Impressive technology means that passengers can surf on deck thanks to an advanced surf simulator or watch a family favourite while enjoying the weather at the outdoor cinema.
However, possibly the most ground-breaking feature of all is the addition of virtual balconies, allowing interior room passengers the opportunity to take in the ocean vistas from inside.
For the water babies, the reimagined swimming pool deck boasts the style of a Caribbean resort, with the fun of a waterpark.
Open to all age groups
Island-style hammocks and daybeds surround the pool ideal for relaxing in the sun, meanwhile two updated waterslides are on hand for the thrill-seekers onboard.
Appealing to all ages, the cruise liner boasts a number of activities to pass the time between destinations.
For the little ones, the kid’s Adventure Ocean gives smaller members of the family an opportunity to make some memories, meanwhile an exclusive teen hangout offers a cool games and music area specifically designed for over 12s.
The whole family can godhead to head in a game of glow-in-the-dark laser tag at the ship’s ‘studio B’, which impressively doubles as an ice-skating rink.
While sailing the Mediterranean seas, guests will also have the chance to explore exotic flavours from around the world, thats a diverse expansion of the restaurants on-board.
Improvised traditional Italian cuisine
Updated Asian cuisine is on offer at the ship’s Izumi restaurants, meanwhile a modern take on traditional Italian cuisine will offer the finest food in a casual setting at the brand new Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen.
Other eateries on-board include Chops Grille American Steakhouse, Boleros Latin Bar, Schooner Bar and Johnny Rockets Express.
With a choice of seven and nine night itineraries, the cruise is due to depart from Rome in May 2020.
Royal Amplified fleet modernisation effort
As Royal Caribbean’s second European ship, it will join Allure of the Seas which has also recently undergone a jaw-dropping transformation.
Following the Allure’s 58-day makeover, which totalled a whopping $ 165 million, the cruise operator gave guests who booked early a bonus $ 300 worth of on-board spending money.
According to the cruise operator: “Explorer of the Seas is the fourth ship in the Voyager Class to be transformed as part of the cruise line’s Royal Amplified fleet modernisation effort.“
“An investment of more than $ 1 billion, across 10 ships in four years, the programme touches every facet of the guest experience and introduces a wide range of thrilling adventures spanning one-of-a-kind attractions and experiential dining and nightlife,” added the cruise operator.
