Royal Caribbean International recently diverted its Grandeur of the Seas on its redeployment from Europe to Panama for a one-night sailing from PortMiami to reintroduce the renovated cruise ship to the media and travel trade.
The ship completed its $48 million revitalization on June 1, 2012 at the Navantia shipyard in Cadiz, Spain. The bow-to-stern revitalization of Grander of the Seas included the addition of five new dining venues, technological upgrades, a pool side LED screen, a refresh of all furniture, carpet, upholstery and staterooms as well as new entertainment offering including a spectacular aerial entertainment in its sixdeck high Centrum.
Among the new dining venues are:
The Park Café — serving soups, sandwiches and more made to order.
Chef’s Table — providing an exclusive gourmet dining experience.
Chop’s Grille — the line’s signature steakhouse.
Giovanni’s Table — Italian trattoria serving classic dishes made to be shared.
Izumi — offering sushi and Asian-fusion cuisine.
In addition, the ship received a new Diamond Lounge for Crown & Anchor Society loyalty guests, a Concierge Lounge for suite guests and top-tier loyalty guests, a Royal Babies and Tots Nursery, as well as a transformed Viking Crown Lounge that features a stunning new design and as a new menu.
The ship is representative of what Royal Caribbean is doing to add to some of its older class ships amenities that have proven very popular on its newer classes of ships.
Under the theme “Now our best ship is every ship” many of the Oasis Class upgrades are found across the entire fleet of 23 ships calling at ports around the world.
