Voy­ager of­fer­ing “amped-up ad­ven­ture”

Cruise Weekly - - Front Page -

THE Syd­ney Har­bour ar­rival of Royal Caribbean’s Voy­ager of the Seas (pic­tured) last Sat morn­ing marks the de­but of the line’s first “am­pli­fied” ves­sel to Aus­tralasian wa­ters.

The ship, which re­cently un­der­went a six week US$97 mil­lion makeover in Sin­ga­pore, in­volv­ing over 2,200 trades­peo­ple, was wel­comed by wa­ter can­nons fol­lowed by an ac­tion-packed event in which two Ninja War­riors show­cased some of Voy­ager’s ex­pe­ri­ences.

Josh O’Sul­li­van and Bryson Klein took on the on-board rock climb­ing walls and the three­storey heights of the “Per­fect Storm” racer wa­ter­slides.

Voy­ager is the fourth ship to be re-imag­ined un­der the Royal Am­pli­fied fleet mod­erni­sa­tion pro­ject, with the makeover in­clud­ing a new Quan­tum Blue hull, which was re­painted at the sug­ges­tion of an Aussie cruiser.

First-to-mar­ket fea­tures such as the slides com­ple­ment a rein­vig­o­rated Vi­tal­ity Spa and re­designed kids and teens spa­ces, along with a glow-in-the-dark laser tag ad­ven­ture ti­tled “Bat­tle for Planet Z”.

Tech­nol­ogy has also been up­graded, with Voy­ager now sup­port­ing the en­hanced Royal Caribbean In­ter­na­tional mo­bile app which al­lows guests to check in and man­age their on-board ex­pe­ri­ence in­clud­ing book­ing ac­tiv­i­ties, shows, din­ing and shore ex­cur­sions.

The 3,200 pas­sen­ger ship will home­port from Syd­ney un­til 19 Apr 2020, of­fer­ing a se­ries of cruises to Queens­land and the South Pa­cific.
