The newest ocean liner from Royal Caribbean to sail the high seas will feature what's being billed as the largest indoor activity space at sea and a double-decker pool.
More details have been released for the Odyssey of the Seas, Royal Caribbean's next-generation ship that is scheduled to lift anchor a year from now and make its world premiere in North America. Following a voyage around the Caribbean, the Odyssey will then sail from Fort Lauderdale, FL to its home port of Rome in 2021, from where she will embark on a Mediterranean voyage sailing the shores of Turkey and Greece.
One of the Odyssey's stand-out features is the SeaPlex, which can be configured to become an interactive arcade, full-sized sports court, bumper car attraction, glow-in-the-dark laser tag and sailing circus with a flying trapeze.
Augmented reality walls and floors create immersive experiences for VR games that can be played individually or in groups.
The ship's two-level pool deck will feature open-air, resort-style pools, whirlpools, hammocks and shady shelters.
Some of Royal Caribbean's most popular attractions—the surf simulator FlowRider, skydiving simulator RipCord by iFly and North Star glass capsule—also return aboard the Odyssey.
And trampoline experiences go high-tech on the SkyPad with the addition of VR headsets that teleport users to another time, place or planet.
