In 2011, experience the Royal AdvantageSM when Royal Caribbean expands our most popular innovations to select ships, giving more to see, more to do, and more to love, to more guests than ever before. Splendour of the Seas has been enhanced to include five new dining experiences, a nursery, new bar and lounges and other venues. More than 100 balcony staterooms will be created, and public areas of the ship will be enhanced.
The Centrum, centrally located on Vision-class ships, emerges as a new chic and sophisticated venue featuring enriching daytime activities, dazzling nightly entertainment and jaw-dropping aerial spectacles. Bringing the Centrum's new entertainment offerings to life is the latest in sound and light technology. During the entertainment experiences, the soaring space comes alive with a series of aerial acrobatic vignettes blurring the lines between artful choreography and state-of-the-art technology.
After enhancement, Splendour of the Seas will explore South America on a selection of itineraries featuring the continent’s most diverse and vibrant ports.
Watch as Splendour of the Seas undergoes its Royal Advantage revitalization!
