For travelers who want to be able to watch their favorite teams during vacation, Royal Caribbean announced it would offer expanded television sports coverage on eight of its ships.

According to Cruise Critic, Independence of the Seas, Mariner of the Seas, Navigator of the Seas and Symphony of the Seas are the first four vessels scheduled to receive the expanded networks this month.

In November, Oasis of the Seas will also receive the new sports package, while Allure of the Seas, Explorer of the Seas and Freedom of the Seas will be upgraded with the expanded networks by spring 2020.

“Royal Caribbean always strives to provide the very best entertainment experience possible, and that includes delivering high-definition sports that are essential to our guests,” Royal Caribbean manager of entertainment media Jake McDaniel told CruiseCritic.com.

When the ships undergo the upgrades, passengers will be able to view U.S. and international sports games available through the ESPN flagship networks, including Monday Night Football and college athletics from the SEC Network and ESPNU.

Royal Caribbean also announced this week that its Voyager of the Seas ship arrived in Singapore after undergoing a $97 million, 41-day overhaul. The vessel will host roundtrip sailings from Singapore on a series of three- to five-night adventures to Penang, Melaka and Kuala Lumpur (Port Klang), Malaysia; and Phuket, Thailand.

Christopher Prelog, vice president of fleet operations at Windstar and former vice president at Seabourn Cruise Line, will assume the role as chief operating officer of Windstar Cruises.

In addition, Betsy O’Rourke, chief marketing officer for Xanterra and the former senior vice president of marketing at Royal Caribbean, will lend her expertise to the Windstar brand.

This is a time of growth and expansion for the small-ship line. Its $250 Million Star Plus Initiative will lengthen three of Windstar’s yacht-like motor ships so new suites, dining venues and public spaces can be added. The first of the stretched ships, Star Breeze, is slated to return to service in May 2020.
