Cruise lines continue to pour hundreds of millions of dollars into renovating their cruise ships. The latest cruise ship makeover was completed when a Royal Caribbean cruise ship sailed to Miami after receiving a $120 million renovation that saw a ton of new features added to the ship.
Royal Caribbean’s Mariner of the Seas is in Miami after receiving new restaurants, waterslides, staterooms, and thrills that passengers will love.
