Radiance of the Seas in dry dock for upgrades

23 May 2011

Royal Caribbean's Radiance of the Seas entered dry dock last week in British Columbia, Canada where it will receive upgrades before reentering service in Australia after it is done with the work on June 10.

Royal Caribbean's managing director in Australia Gavin Smith thinks the upgrades will be a nice addition, “Radiance of the Seas is already the best ship to be based in the region – the newest, largest and most innovative – but what we’re doing is taking an already great ship and transforming her into a truly spectacular ship. And best of all – Australians will be amongst the first in the world to enjoy the enhancements."

The changes being made to Radiance of the Seas include

  • Six single cabins will be added and, if successful, they will also be featured on other ships in the fleet
  • Addition of outdoor poolside movie screen
  • Seven new dining options
    • Samba Grill (Brazillian steakhouse)
    • Rita’s Cantina (Mexican)
    • Giovanni’s Table (Italian)
    • Park Café (Deli)
    • Izumi (Sushi)
    • Boardwalk Dog House (Hot dogs)
    • Chef’s Table (High end restaurant)
    • Quill & Compass (Bar)
  • Addition of Diamond Lounge and Concierge Lounge for Crown & Anchor Society members
  • Wi-fi will be "enhanced
  • Interactive televisions added to staterooms allowing passengers to book shore tours, order room service or check their SeaPass balance
  • Addition of Royal Babies & Tots Nursery
