Royal Caribbean's Grandeur of the Seas to Undergo Five-Week Renovation

Royal Caribbean International's Grandeur of the Seas will undergo a five week long dry lock renovation totaling $48 million at the Navantia ship yard in Cadiz, Spain.

The Grandeur of the Seas is the third of Royal Caribbean's six Vision-class ships to undergo extensive revitalization. Grandeur of the Seas' renovations will include technological upgrades, new entertainment offerings, a new Diamond Lounge for Crown & Anchor Society loyalty guests, a Concierge Lounge for suite guests and top-tier loyalty guests, a transformed Viking Crown Lounge and an overall refreshment of furniture, carpet, upholstery and staterooms.

In addition, the ship will receive a variety of new dining venues including Giovanni's Table, an Italian trattoria; Izumi Asian Cuisine, Park Cafe, an outdoor gourmet market; Chops Grille, Royal Caribbean's signature steakhouse; and Chef's Table, an exclusive five-course, wine-pairing dinner event co-hosted by the Executive Chef and Sommelier.

Other amenity upgrades include a Royal Babies and Tots Nursery for children ages 36 months to six years old. The nursery offers parents childcare drop-off options in the daytime and evening, carefully maintaining a staff to child ratio.

Grandeur of the Seas will offer ship-wide Wi-Fi service and the ship will feature an outdoor video screen overlooking the pool deck.

Upon completion of the refurbishments on May 31, Grandeur of the Seas will sail an 11-night Mediterranean itinerary roundtrip from Barcelona, Spain.  She will spend the rest of the summer offering a variety of Mediterranean itineraries from Venice, Italy and Provence, France.
