Royal Caribbean International is introducing iPad mobile digital devices in every stateroom onboard the newly revitalized Splendour of the Seas. The iPads will be available beginning mid-Feb. 2012 on Splendour of the Seas before being extended to all Vision-class ships when each undergoes revitalization in the following two years.

The iPads will feature English and Portuguese when they debut on Splendour of the Seas, and will be supported by a constant Wi-Fi connection also being installed throughout the ship.

As another aspect of its revitalization, Splendour of the Seas, will emerge from dry dock on Nov. 25, 2011 with flat screen televisions installed in every room, new bathrooms, remodeled interiors and an additional 124 balconies. The Splendour will also debut new dining options including the Asian Izumi restaurant; the line's steakhouse, Chops Grille; the Boardwalk Dog House hotdog counter; the Park Cafe deli-style restaurant; and the Chef's Table dining experience.

Upon completion of the refurbishments, Splendour of the Seas will sail a trans-Atlantic voyage on Nov. 25 from Lisbon, Portugal to her seasonal homeport of Sao Paulo (Santos), Brazil. From there, she will offer a variety of South American itineraries that take advantage of the summer season in Brazil.
