Royal Caribbean increases number of cabines in the Voyager Class 

The cruising segment is booming: Royal Caribbean upgrades four ships of their fleet and also investments will be done in Germany. 

The cruise shipping company Royal Caribbean continues with its revitalization program and upgrades four vessels of their Voyager Class, which have been approved each for around 3.100 passengers, with additional 75 cabins. Additional refurbishments will be done on the “Navigator of the Seas”, the “Voyager of the Seas”, the “Explorer of the Seas” and the “Adventure of the Seas”. The fifth vessel of this class, the “Mariner of the Seas” has already made its docking time in May 2012.

Entered service in 2002 the "Navigator of the Seas" will receive 81 additional beds

The vessels of the Voyager Class have been built at the Kvaerner Yard in Finland and are in service since 1999. The ships length is of 311 m up to 47 m in width and measured at an average of 137.000 gt. With these refurbishments intends the company to increase the passenger capacity by 4.8 percent. The first ship will have its docking time at the Grand Bahama Shipyard in January 2014. 

Obviously the cruising segment is booming international wide and also unbroken in Germany. “The results for 2013 are very positive: bookings in the first half of the year were clearly above the figures of the previous year”, says Richard Vogel, CEO of the German Tourist Association (DRV). Germany is already today the second largest Cruise Market in Europe. Increasing turnover and passenger numbers can be seen particularly in the oceanic cruise market: increasing numbers of turnover and passenger numbers could be seen last year by over 11 percent. With this more than 1.5 million German guests booked an oceanic cruise.

You really make it seem really easy together with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be actually one thing that I feel I might by no means understand. It kind of feels too complex and very extensive for me. I am looking forward on your subsequent submit, I'll try to get the hang of it!
