Discovery receives a makeover on the move

Discovery receives a makeover on the move
Voyages of Discovery has implemented a set of refurbishments to Discovery whilst the vessel was at sea,  designed to enhance the overall passenger experience.  Renovations include a refresh to the ship’s interior and exterior design as well as a number of digital enhancements.

Included is the trialling of a new internet system which aims to significantly improve the speed and complement the Wi-Fi already installed aboard certain areas of the ship including the internet café.

Media Players have replaced the older DVDs, playing content into both cabins and the ship’s cinema in order to show a greater range of newly released and classic movies.

Discovery’s teak decking has also been updated around the Sun Deck and more areas of the ship will be refurbished during her drydock later this year.  New carpets have been added throughout the communal stairs and landings, with further areas to also be replaced as part of ongoing investment.

Over 100 cabin bathrooms have received updated enamelling and a flooring revamp and the team is busy continuing to update the remaining cabins over the next coming months.  

TV programming is also being studies by Voyages of Discovery and a team is currently reviewing the coverage and channels offered and working alongside a number of companies with a view to releasing a wider range of channels supported by improved satellite coverage.
