Online PR News – 10-August-2014 – Delhi – New Delhi, August 8th, 2014 – Breaking surf-report: a wave unlike any other is due to hit Singapore this November. The newly revamped Voyager of the Seas will emerge out of a month-long drydock at Sembawang Shipyard in Singapore. The multimillion-dollar investment will see Asia’s largest cruise ship undergo a bow-to-stern makeover and she will be packed with even more amenities including the region’s first FlowRider surfing simulator. Guests can now ride the perfect wave at any time, even in the middle of the ocean.
Highlights of Voyager of the Seas’ revitalisation include:
Onshore or offshore, you never have to wait for good wind conditions to catch the perfect wave on the FlowRider. Whether you surf, boogie board or wake board, test your skills on the 12 meter long surf simulator or watch others take on the challenge from the nearby stadium seating. There are also private lessons for those that want to really hone their skills. For more information about the FlowRider, see the following video: http://goo.gl/WdQz0i
