It includes the creation of four new specialty restaurants—the Samba Grill Brazilian Steakhouse, the Mexican-themed Rita’s Cantina, the Italian Giovanni’s Table and the Park Cafe deli-style eatery.
There will also be an exclusive Chef’s Table where 14 diners get a private cocktail party and a specially-prepared wine-paired menu chosen by the evening’s featured chef who will personally present each course.
A new Diamond Lounge for Crown & Anchor Society loyalty programme members is part of the revitalisation, plus enhanced kids club facilities, WiFi throughout the ship and interactive flat- screen televisions in all staterooms which will allow passengers to reserve shore excursions, order room service and check SeaPass account balances.
Royal Caribbean Cruises Australia md, Gavin Smith, said the move demonstrates the company’s deep commitment to the Australasian market.
Radiance of the Seas will make her Australasian debut in October 2011 with a series of two- to 18-night cruises around Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.
