Happy Sunday! We hope you are having a great weekend and ready to talk a little Royal Caribbean.
The big cruise news this week was Royal Caribbean's announcement that it has postponed indefinitely its upcoming Royal Amplification projects.
Four ships had upgrades scheduled this year and next year, but those are now on hold until further notice.
While technical dry docks may still occur (where the propulsion and necessary maintenance upgrades take place), new features, activities and amenities will not be added as scheduled for Allure of the Seas, Explorer of the Seas, Liberty of the Seas and Adventure of the Seas.
Despite the news, Royal Caribbean says they still plan to complete the delayed cruise ship makeovers at a later date.
