Royal Caribbean scales back Majesty of the Seas refurbishment plans

Royal Caribbean has decided not to implement some of the previously announced changes coming to Majesty of the Seas during an upcoming refurbishment later this spring.

A Royal Caribbean spokesperson confirmed to Royal Caribbean Blog that the scope for Majesty of the Seas' refurbishment has been finalized and not everything that was initially announced is going onboard.

Specifically, it now appears Majesty of the Seas will not be receiving a new waterslide, new specialty restaurants in Sabor Modern Mexican or Izumi, as well as not receiving the DreamWorks Experience.

Other planned upgrades, including Voom internet, poolside movie screen, family jacussis and an update to the casino, are all still planned.

A guest initially reported the news on Cruise Critic's message boards, after receiving an email from Royal Caribbean customer relations.

Royal Caribbean originally announced the refurbishment plans in July 2015 after changing its mind and keeping Majesty of the Seas in the fleet, rather than transfer her to sister brand Pullmantur Cruises.
