(9 a.m. EDT) – Royal Caribbean will add multiple water slides, an aqua park and its popular Izumi Asian restaurant to Adventure of the Seas during the ship's November dry dock, RoyalCaribbeanBlog.com has revealed.
Among the additions will be the cyclone and typhoon water slides, which can also be found on Liberty of the Seas and Harmony of the Seas. (Liberty's Tidal Wave water slide, which has yet to open since being installed in January due to design flaws, will not be added to Adventure.)
Along with the water slides, Royal Caribbean will add two other popular water-based attractions: FlowRider surf simulators and the family-friendly Splashaway Bay aqua park.
Moving indoors, Royal Caribbean will add an Izumi Asian restaurant during Adventure's dry dock. The eatery is popular with Royal Caribbean cruisers for its sushi and cooked Japanese dishes. The line is also adding dry-aged steaks to the menu at Chops Grille.
Adventure of the Seas is just one of many Royal Caribbean cruise ships receiving makeovers this year. Liberty of the Seas, Jewel of the Seas, Majesty of the Seas and Empress of the Seas have all completed dry dock refurbishments in 2016.
