Royal Caribbean International will bring the newly renovated Grandeur of the Seas cruise ship back to Baltimore next year, officials said Tuesday.
The ship, which is undergoing a $48 million modernization, will replace another cruise vessel early in 2013, according to a statement from the Maryland Port Administration.
The refurbished ship will have new dining options, a new nursery and technology upgrades, including ship-wide wireless Internet service, the port administration said. It will sail year-round from Baltimore to the Bahamas, the Caribbean and Bermuda.
Grandeur of the Seas' first trip, to Bermuda, is scheduled for May 3, 2013.
Enchantment of the Seas, which will be replaced by the renovated ship, will continue to sail from Baltimore until April 2013.
