The latest Royal Caribbean ship to have been given the 'Royal Advantage' has emerged out of dry dock today.
Navigator of the Seas underwent a month-long overhaul, which saw 81 new 'virtual balcony' cabins featuring a giant LED screen with a live view of the outside world, new panoramic ocean view cabins, with floor to ceiling windows. Other enhancements include new dining options such as Izumi and Giovanni's and signature favourite Chops Grille. Navigator will also feature a brand new specialty restaurant called Sabor, serving Mexican food.
Other highlights include digital signage, bow-to-stern WI-FI, ultra slim TV's, movie screen on the pool deck and a new nursery for children 6-36 months called Royal Babies and Tots Nursery. The champagne bar has also been transformed into a stylish bar called the R Bar.
The most noticeable new feature is the Flowrider surf simulator at the back of the sports deck. Previously only available on the Freedom and Oasis class, it is the first time the Flowrider has featured on a Voyager class vessel.
Navigator of the Seas will sail year-round from Galverston, Texas to ports including Cozumel, Mexico; Roatan Honduras; Falmouth, Jamaica; and George Town, Grand Cayman.
There is also suspicion that Navigator of the Seas will replace Jewel of the Seas in San Juan for the 2015/2016 season. However Royal Caribbean have not officially announced any plans at this moment in time.
