Voyager offering “amped-up adventure”
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.
