Following the news that Quantum of the Seas will be cruising out of China in 2015, Royal Caribbean has decided to change their original 2015 ship deployments.



Anthem of the Seas, which was due to sail from Ft Lauderdale during the 2015 winter season, will now head for New York offering cruises to the Caribbean and Bahamas. With this alteration, Royal Caribbean have substituted Navigator of the Seas to replace Anthem of the Seas sailing from the South Florida port.


Navigator will offer six- and eight-night Western Caribbean sailings from Port Everglades, joining Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas as well as Independence of the Seas, which will begin to offer year-round four- and five night cruises starting November 2015.

Navigator of the Seas emerges from refit with new WOWs

Posted by RCI fans on February 4, 2014 at 5:25 PM Comments comments (0)

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.
