The ship is replacing Salsa, the Tex Mex restaurant, with the Brazilian steakhouse, Moderno Churrascaria. Other relocations and renovations will be made in the Gift Shop, Art Gallery, Photo Gallery, Kid’s Crew and Teen Club, Conference Center, Spinnaker Lounge and Blue Lagoon Restaurant. The Dawn Club Casino, as well as the Fitness area, Garden café and Atrium Lobby, will undergo several enhancements and improvements.
Additionally, there will also be technical modifications, such as the replacement of one engine, as well as preventative maintenance, removal and replacing of both bearings on the ports and starboard azipods, application of new hull coating and an upgrade to the hot temperature regulation which will reduce energy consumption.
