Royal Caribbean Ship Completes $115 Million Redesign

Royal Caribbean’s Navigator of the Seas cruise ship has arrived in Miami fresh off a $115 million redesign.

The 3,386-passenger ship, which will be sailing five and nine-night Caribbean itineraries, has added a host of new amenities, from a new poolscape to an onboard blow-dry bar to what it calls the “longest aqua coaster at sea.”

Other additions include an Italian eatery by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver; a laser tag arena; a FlowRider; a Polynesian-style bar called The Bamboo Room and a New England-inspired seafood eatery called Hooked.

“We have really dialed up the adventure and Caribbean vibes in ways that will make Navigator of the Seas the ultimate getaway to take from Miami,” said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “Independence and Mariner of the Seas, the first two modernized ships in our Royal Amplified program, have quickly become standout hits, and Navigator builds on this momentum with a combination of new, exciting features and signature Royal Caribbean offerings that will surprise and delight guests cruising with us for the first time and those who have vacationed with us before.”  

Navigator is the latest beneficiary of the fleet modernization program, which will see a total investment of $1 billion, according to the company.

It will extend to 10 different ships over a four-year period.

Navigator will soon call on Royal’s new Perfect Day at CocoCay private destination beginning in May.
