Royal Caribbean International’s Grandeur of the Seas completed its €38 million refurbishment yesterday at the Navantia ship yard in Cadiz, Spain. The bow-to-stern revamp included the addition of five new dining venues, technological upgrades, a pool side LED screen, and a refresh of all furniture, carpet, upholstery and staterooms, as well as new entertainment offerings including spectacular aerial displays in its six-deck Centrum.
In addition, the ship received a new Diamond Lounge for Crown & Anchor Society loyalty guests, a Concierge Lounge for suite guests and top-tier loyalty guests, and a Royal Babies and Tots Nursery, as well as a transformed Viking Crown Lounge.
Grandeur of the Seas will spend the summer offering a variety of Mediterranean itineraries from Venice, Italy and Provence, France.
