The 3,114-passenger ship is Royal Caribbean’s fifth ship to undergo revitalization, and at $61 million this will be the brand’s largest investment yet.

Guests(and my kids!) will love that the new Adventure of the Seas will have the new dual racer waterslides, Cyclone and Typhoon, the popular FlowRider surf simulator, and a children’s aquapark, Splashaway Bay.

In addition, Royal has planned a new lineup of culinary and entertainment venues with Izumi Japanese Cuisine, the brand’s signature steakhouse, Chops Grille and Boleros Latin Lounge. The ship also will receive more than 100 new staterooms, a refresh of all existing staterooms and a brand new Suites Lounge for the luxury traveler.

“We’re thrilled to debut an array of new enhancements to one of our guest’s most beloved ships,” said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “The name Adventure says it all; this ship is packed with action, featuring a mix of signature features and innovations, including thrilling new waterslides and VOOM, the fastest internet at sea.”

Adventure of the Seas offers some of our favorite itineraries and that won’t change after the revitalization.   Vacationers who love to explore the Southern Caribbean will have the opportunity to sail from San Juan, Puerto Rico to the most sought-after spots in the Caribbean, including Bridgetown, Barbados; Castries, St. Lucia; St. Johns, Antigua; Basseterre, St. Kitts; and Philipsburg, St. Maarten.

In 2016, Royal Caribbean will revitalize six ships in its fleet: Liberty of the Seas, Empress of the Seas, Jewel of the Seas, Majesty of the Seas, Adventure of the Seas, and Radiance of the Seas. As the brand introduces new ships, they introduce new designs and concepts.   Revitalizing their older ships, gives them the ability to add these innovations to their current fleet so that more passengers can experience all of the newest advancements in cruising.
