(12:53 p.m. EST) — Royal Caribbean will not be adding the Sabor Modern Mexican or Izumi restaurants to Majesty of the Seas, as it previously announced it would when the ship is refurbished in March. Nor will the line add a water slide or the DreamWorks experience, both of which were part of the original plan for the ship’s refurbishment.
Majesty of the Seas will receive other planned upgrades, including a kids-only pool area with Splashaway Bay water park, a poolside movie screen and the addition of Royal Caribbean’s high-speed Internet, Voom.
The line confirmed the changes to RoyalCaribbeanBlog.com but did not offer any reasons for the scale back.
Built in 1997, the 2,350-passenger Majesty of the Seas is the only one in the line’s Sovereign Class. Sister ships Sovereign of the Seas and Monarch of the Seas moved to the Pullmantur fleet eight and three years ago, respectively. Majesty of the Seas was supposed to transfer to Pullmantur as well, but the line changed its mind last summer, instead deciding to keep it in the Royal Caribbean fleet.
