R Bar to Be Center of Splendour of the Seas

Royal Caribbean's Splendour of the Seas is currently in dry dock at Cadiz having a number of new features installed.

During the process, the ship's atrium will undergo a visual transformation, and its centerpiece will replace the current Champagne Bar. The new bar will be called the R Bar.

The new bar will have "a sophisticated 1960's vibe."

The rest of the atrium will also be getting a makeover with the latest in sound and light technology, but its most unique feature will be new equipment being installed above the heads of the passengers in the 60-foot Centrum. It will be used for the ship's "vertical entertainment," aerial acrobatic vignettes several times a week which blur "the lines between artful choreography and state-of-the-art technology."

Splendour returns to service with its new features in place on November 26, 2011.
