The Innovation Lab is a new facility noted on Cruise Aficionados previously. It is a state of the art research and design center for Royal Caribbean designed to aid it in keeping pace within an increasingly aggressive industry. Royal Caribbean released this video giving an overview of the structure.
Royal Caribbean’s third Voyager class ship, the Adventure of the Seas, will undergo a sixty-one million dollar series of upgrades. A FlowRider surf simulator, water slides and new children’s water park are being added. In addition, Izumi, Chops and Boleros will be added to the ship. What is going to prove interesting is where on the ship an additional 100 cabins will be placed. Were one to speculate, the Viking Crown Lounge is likely to be cannibalized, as will the deck space above the bridge. The shame of this is an ongoing compromise of the ship as an environment one can escape within, enjoy the sea, the air, the discrete nooks which one could find a sense of privacy.
