Royal Caribbean’s Rhapsody of the Seas has emerged from a four week drydock in Singapore with USD$54 million worth of new features and revamped amenities.
The third in Royal Caribbean’s fleet to be given the ‘Royal Advantage’,the multi-million dollar makeover incorporates the most popular elements from the line’s largest and newest ships, Allure of the Seas and Oasis of the Seas.
Constant cruiser Alan Worrall was invited to cut the ribbon with Captain Rick Sullivan during the celebratory welcome aboard ceremony in the new-look atrium.
An Australian, Mr Worrall has sailed on almost 50 cruises aboard Rhapsody of the Seas.
“With Rhapsody of the Seas we thought about all the innovative ways we can give Australians the best and most memorable holiday at sea,” RCL Cruise Australia managing director Gavin Smith said.
“With this complete bow-to-stern makeover, guests will be sailing on a virtually new ship.”
