ROYAL CARIBBEAN INTERNATIONAL INTRODUCES VERTICAL ENTERTAINMENT ABOARD SPLENDOUR OF THE SEAS
Vision-Class’ Signature Centrum Will Transform into an Exciting New Experience for Guests
Beginning with Splendour of the Seas, the Centrum with its sweeping views and central location on the ship reemerged from an extensive revitalization late last year as a new chic and sophisticated venue featuring enriching daytime activities, dazzling nightly entertainment and jaw-dropping aerial spectacles.
The Centrum’s Champagne Bar also wasreinvented, unveiled as a new venue – the R Bar – featuring a sophisticated 1960s vibe, complete with iconic furnishing and signature cocktails mixed by a savvy and personable mixologist.
“The rebirth of the spectacular 60-foot high Centrum found aboard the Vision-class ships brings new life to a popular gathering space by incorporating innovative technology and vertical entertainment elements to what was already the place to be and be seen,” said Lisa Bauer, senior vice president, Hotel Operations, Royal Caribbean International.
Guests are in for a multi-sensory experience that puts them at close proximity to amazing aerial performers from multiple viewpoints in a sophisticated and glamorous atmosphere.
Bringing the Centrum’s new entertainment offerings to life is the latest in sound and light technology. The glass elevators facing into the Centrum features large LED panels across their entire length providing a spectacular backdrop of moving visuals 5 deck high.
During the entertainment expereinces, which takes place throughout the cruise, the soaring space comes alive with a series of aerial acrobatic vignettes blurring the lines between artful choreography and state-of-the-art technology.
The R Bar offering features a return to the classics – gimlet, martini, brown liquors, gin and whiskeys – all served in unique glassware with surprising garnishes. The venue’s resident mixologist, selected from the cruise line’s fleet to be the face and personality behind the bar, will create drink specials that will complement each evening’s theme and aerial spectacular.
Throughout each sailing, guests can gather in the Centrum for a variety of interactive daytime activities including chef demonstrations, towel folding demonstrations, dance classes, game shows, Nintendo Wii competitions and the popular Captain’s Corner where guests can spend time with the Captain. Additionally, guests may sit back, relax and enjoy performances from musicians and singers or take a spin on the dance floor at themed parties such as the popular Disco Inferno dance party.
