Royal Caribbean International has announced further details about some of the new features that will be added to Independence of the Seas during the ship’s upcoming refurbishment.
Independence of the Seas will return to Southampton in May 2018 following her refurbishment. The ship will be the first in the fleet to feature virtual reality trampolines.
Skypad will combine trampolines with virtual reality. The new venue will be positioned on the top of the ship towards the aft. Passengers will be strapped into a bungee-type harness and will wear a headset which will transport them to virtual reality locations, such as the surface of the moon!
Independence of the Seas will feature a host of other new venues including a poolside fish n’ chip shop, a sweet shop, a Japanese restaurant, an Escape Room, waterslides, and a new Sports Bar & Arcade.
