More Enhancements Seen on Cruise Ships

It used to be when picking out a cruise you only had to decide which itinerary and cruise line as everything was pretty much the same between ships. You had pools, a buffet, a place to sleep and some entertainment. In recent years, there are many more things to consider other than just the itinerary and cruise line. With the new mega ships in the industry, we are now seeing things you may have never thought possible on a cruise ship – a real grass lawn, a water coaster on a ship, a carousel on a ship and ice rinks! Now you need to look at the itinerary, cruise line and individual ship to find what you want.

Royal Caribbean has been giving many of its ships Oasis class upgrades. These upgrades, known as the Royal Advantage, are adding new dining options, entertainment, nurseries and technology to existing ships. Four ships have received these upgrades, with more to come in the next three years. From the Dreamworks Experience to the Wayfinder system and much more, the Royal Advantage will be bringing so much more for you to enjoy on your cruise.

Carnival Liberty just completed it’s Fun Ship 2.0 upgrades, which included more dining, bar and entertainment enhancements. Included in these upgrades were the RedFrog Rum Bar and Guy’s Burger Joint. Carnival has partnered with Guy Fieri, George Lopez and Hasbro to develop new and exciting venues for you to enjoy on your next Carnival Cruise.

We can’t wait to see what the future holds for new venues, experiences and technology on the upcoming new ships and future updates on existing ships. Our top favorite recent additions to cruise ships would have to be the Virtual Portholes on the Disney Dream and the Wayfinder system on the Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas. What will top these, we can’t wait to see!
