Royal Caribbean is set for a $110 million transformation project on its Explorer of the Seas cruise ship, the company said this week.
The newly-revamped ship, which will debut in 2020, will add a new waterslide, a “resort-style” poolscape and a new poolside bar, among other amenities.
That will also include a new Johnny Rockets Express; a standalone Starbucks coffee shop; a sports bar called Playmakers and the cruise line’s new Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen.
After a summer season in Europe, Explorer of the Seas will head to the Caribbean.
Royal will be operating five and nine-night Eastern and Southern Caribbean cruises out of PortMiami, including a number of stops at the company’s new private destination, Perfect Day at CocoCay, which opened earlier this year in The Bahamas.
The ship is the fourth in Royal Caribbean’s Voyager Class to be revamped, part of a wider $1 billion fleet enhancement project.
That project will ultimately cover 10 ships over the course of four years.
