The virtual balconies are 80-inch, high-definition screens that project real-time images of the outside and pipe in sea sounds.
The first of the five Voyager-class ships to undergo revitalization, Navigator of the Seas also added 81 accommodations through a redesign of public spaces on Decks 2, 3 and 12. The Vitality Spa and Fitness Center, for example, is now enclosed by a variety of deluxe ocean-view with balcony and panoramic ocean-view rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows.
Unique to Navigator's revitalization is Sabor, for 'modern' Mexican dining at a $25 cover charge. Specialties include homemade guacamole and margaritas prepared tableside.
The 2002-built ship also gained a FlowRider surf simulator, a Diamond Lounge for Crown & Anchor Society members and Oasis-class restaurants such as Izumi for Japanese cuisine and Giovanni’s Table, a casual Italian trattoria. The Champagne Bar was reconfigured into the R Bar, with a retro, 1960s vibe. A Royal Babies Tots Nursery was installed, too.
Pervasive Wi-Fi, flat-screen televisions and digital signage were other additions.
Navigator of the Seas sails every Sunday from Galveston, year-round.
