All staterooms have been renovated with a contemporary dťcor and furnishings and flat-panel TVs. A number of Ocean View Staterooms have been converted into balconies. New stateroom categories have also been added which are the Family Junior Suite and Superior Ocean View Staterooms with floor to ceiling windows.

Technology enhancements feature the Digital Wayfinders, touchscreens in public areas which show the dayís programme and information on venues, services and menus onboard in six different languages including English, Chinese, Japanese and Korean; and ship-wide Wi-Fi.

The ship will then return to the Caribbean in November to offer Southern Caribbean and Panama Canal sailings.
