A wave unlike any other is due to hit Singapore this November. The newly revamped Voyager of the Seas will emerge out of a month-long drydock at Sembawang Shipyard in Singapore. The multimillion-dollar investment will see Asia’s largest cruise ship undergo a bow-to-stern makeover and she will be packed with even more amenities including the region’s first FlowRider surfing simulator. Guests can now ride the perfect wave at any time, even in the middle of the ocean.

Highlights of Voyager of the Seas’ revitalisation include:

Onshore or offshore, you never have to wait for good wind conditions to catch the perfect wave on the FlowRider. Whether you surf, boogie board or wake board, test your skills on the 12 meter long surf simulator or watch others take on the challenge from the nearby stadium seating. There are also private lessons for those that want to really hone their skills.

Virtual Balconies
Interior rooms with a view of the ocean! Virtual Balconies will provide guests in select interior staterooms with real-time sights and sounds of the sea, displayed on an 80-inch, high definition screen framed to look like a real balcony. An industry first concept from the Quantum Class of ships, the Virtual Balconies onboard Voyager of the Seas will be one of only three ships to offer this unique feature.

3D Movie Theatre
Already a huge hit on Mariner of the Seas, Royal Caribbean provides the glasses and the action in the onboard 3D movie theatre – all guests have to do is sit back and prepare to be wowed as new releases from DreamWorks and other film studios come to life in stunning 3D! Plus, the ship will also feature a 220-square foot outdoor movie screen by the pool which will screen movies and be used for giant video game challenges.

New Dining Options
A wide array of delectable dining options will be added to Voyager of the Seas, including Giovanni’s Table Italian trattoria, Royal Caribbean’s signature Chop’s Grille steakhouse and Izumi Asian Cuisine. Plus, the ship’s Champagne Bar will be re-conceptualised into Royal Caribbean’s retro-chic R Bar, channeling the sophisticated 1960s era, complete with iconic furnishings and signature cocktails created by savvy mixologists. There will also be a new Diamond Lounge for Crown & Anchor guests to enjoy.

Voyager of the Seas will have a host of up-to-the-minute technologies added including new digital signage to help guests find their way around the ship and to find out what’s happening onboard, shipwide Wi-Fi service and flat panel televisions in every stateroom.

The 138,279 gross registered ton ship will depart for Australia after her dry-dock on November 25, on a 13 night-cruise to Darwin, Brisbane and Sydney. Her arrival will kick-start the third summer season in Australia. The guests onboard this repositioning cruise will be amongst the first in the world to experience Voyager of the Seas’ new features. For her return to Asia next year, she will offer a 14-Night Fremantle to Singapore Cruise on April 1 with stopovers at Port Hedland, Bangkok (Laem Chabang) (overnight) and Ho Chi Minh City (Phu My), followed by a scenic 10-Night Singapore to Tokyo cruise on April 15, which calls at at Nha Trang, Hong Kong, Taipei (Keelung) and Nagasaki.

The 14 passenger-deck, 3,840-guest Voyager of the Seas together with her sister ship Mariner of the Seas, are the largest and most exciting ships based in Asia. Guests will be WOWed by their wide range of innovative activities and entertainment only on Royal Caribbean, such as the Royal Promenade – a boulevard of duty-free shops – an ice-skating rink, full-sized sports court, in-line skating track and rock-climbing wall.
In addition, there is a three-tier theatre, themed bars and lounges as well as a nightclub.
Both ships also feature the unique DreamWorks Animation entertainment programme. Guests of all ages can interact with ‘celebrity’ characters like Shrek and Fiona of “Shrek”, Alex of “Madagascar” and Po of “Kung Fu Panda” during parades in the Royal Promenade, character breakfasts and photo opportunities.
