Welcome, Explorer of the Seas!
The new arrival does come with a sad departure- the Rhapsody of the Seas will leave our waters after its eighth season in 2014-2015 to make way for the new ship. The Explorer of the Seas is much bigger and newer, offering more facilities and more cabins to the growing market.
Farewell, Rhapsody of the Seas!
So, who is this newcomer to the Sydney scene? A Voyager-class vessel, she can accommodate over 3,000 guests along with a team of scientists who make use of her inbuilt atmospheric and oceanographic laboratory. Fun entertainment features include a climbing wall, an ice-skating rink, a mini-golf course and the action-packed Royal Promenade with plenty of shops, eateries and parades. There are 15 bars, clubs and lounges, dining options galore, a roomy theatre with broadway-style shows and much more.
New Explorer of the Seas cruises will soon be up here. Rhapsody lovers feeling a little nostalgic can check out the rest of her itineraries in the South Pacific here!
