We were catching up on our cruise news today and read, in a recent addition of USA Today Travel, that Royal Caribbean plans to spend $300 million over the next three years to update many of its older ships with features now only found on its newer ships. During this rehab, set to take place during the unusually lengthy, month-long dry dock overhauls, most of Royal’s Vision, Voyager and Radiance class vessels will be getting Chops Grille steakhouses, Rita’s Cantina Mexican restaurants and several other popular eateries found on its latest Oasis Class ships as well as new categories of cabins, new baby care areas and more. Royal Caribbean has reported that three ships will get makeovers in 2012: Rhapsody of the Seas (in March 2012); Grandeur of the Seas (May 2012) and Serenade of the Seas (November 2012). Additional overhauls planned for 2013 and 2014 will take place on Legend of the Seas, Vision of the Seas, Navigator of the Seas, Voyager of the Seas, Explorer of the Seas, Adventure of the Seas and Brilliance of the Seas. Travel N Relax will continue to follow these rehabs for you and keep you advised as this news evolves.
