Guests cruising with Royal Caribbean will soon experience the ultimate in relaxation and rejuvenation with the introduction of a new fleet-wide bedding program. The program, designed to enhance the sleep experience, includes an extreme makeover from bed frames to covers.
New bed frames prevent sagging. Nine-inch-thick spring mattresses come with separate two-inch-thick micro-fiber pillow tops. The long-staple cotton-blend sheets have a 220-thread-count. Each bed has two micro-fiber pillows and one decorative pillow. The duvet has cotton-blend covers and bed skirts. Colored bed scarves placed at the end of the beds protect the duvet.
The cruise line also has created a solution to the dreaded gap that invariably forms when two twin beds are pushed together to form one larger, queen-size bed. Custom-designed pillow tops are doubled over when placed atop twin beds, but are unfolded and laid on top of one another and the mattresses to create a queen-size, gap-free mattress.
The new bedding program will make its debut in May on Royal Caribbean’s newest ship, Freedom of the Seas, and will be rolled out to the rest of the fleet by May 2007.
Royal Caribbean has nineteen ships in service and two under construction.
