New dining options include Izumi Japanese Cuisine with a feature on fresh sushi, Giovanni’s Table Italian trattoria for a more intimate evening and Royal Caribbean’s signature Chop’s Grille steakhouse.

With so much to do, we’ve selected the top 10 things to do on board the revitalised Voyager of the Seas.

1. Surf on the High Seas with Flowrider

If you are itching to try the waves , hit the FlowRider  for some body boarding or grab a surf board and glide across the flow while hanging ten. If you have not used a board, instructors are at hand.

2. Glide on the Ice Skating Rink

3. Climb the Wall

Forget about those daily mountains to climb and have some fun on this 12 metre rock wall with the spectacular ocean view, whether you be a beginner or a speed climber.

4. Play Mini Golf

The water hazard is a bit larger than usual but this is Mini Golf so no need to be hitting long drives. Practice your putting with the ocean as your back drop.

5. Jog or Walk along the Jogging Track

After all of the indulgence be it the never-ending buffet, the restaurants or the bars, it is time to hit the jogging track to make sure you can do it again. Or if you like to keep your daily routine going, what better way than with an ocean view.

6. Shop, Eat & Drink at Royal Promenade

Take a stroll through the Royal Promenade. With its four storey high ceiling, you will feel you are in a European arcade,  do a little retail therapy and then enjoy an ale at the Pig and Whistle or a cocktail at R Bar before dining at Giovanni’s Table.

7. Watch an Outdoor Movie

What better way to enjoy the balmy nights at sea than by lazing on a lounge or in a pool and catching a movie on the giant outdoor screen under the stars. For those who like the action to come right at them, there is also a 3D theatre on board.

8. Admire the View from Your Real Time Virtual Balcony

For those who like to take on the house, there is Casino Royale where you can roll the dice or see the cards dealt. No James Bond here, so don’t order a Vesper Martini.
