There is nothing to flash about the bridge room of Captain Charles Teige.
But it's about the only place on the gigantic cruise ship Voyager of the Seas, untouched by a $ 80 million makeover, making it one of the most beneficial ships ever to sail.
Whether it is intentional or not, his office has apparently escaped the glitz and glamor of the renovated Voyagers of the Sea by Royal Caribbeans.
Despite the sparkling new interiors of his ship – which cost $ 80 million – it seems as if the captain's command room remained untouched.
The bridge room – with uninterrupted views of good, the sea – has a classic old school feel, but a touch of retro with its soft velvet blue lounges and traditional navigation gadgets to an intriguing scooter in the middle of the room.
On deck 10 of the largest ship to sail in Australia, this is what can be considered the best seat in the house.
Then there is & # 39; the world's first smart ship – Quantum of the Seas that costs $ 1 billion – complete with a robot rod and a parachute-jumping simulator.
Daily Mail Australia has gained access to two of these revolutionary cruise ships behind the scenes.

The ship also features a parachute-jumping simulator – iFly from RipCord
The iFly marks the first time that such a simulator has appeared on a cruise ship
The Voyager – which sailed for the first time since the multi-million dollar refurbishment – embarked on a 14-day trip from Singapore and arrived in Sydney on Monday morning.
Aboard the exclusive part of the ship, just outside the bridge room, hangs a collage of landscapes that capture the natural beauty of Norway – the home of Captain Charles Teige.
What is particularly different from the rest of the luxury ship in the master's room is an appropriate and simple color scheme of sea blue carpet, curtains, lounges and ceilings.
The room lets the floor-to-ceiling windows take the floor and benefits from the panoramic views of the water that are breathtaking from this part of the deck.
Although for security reasons not too much was revealed in the background of the bridge room, there was a special feature that stood out from the rest.
The scooter, with a & # 39; captain & # 39; engraved on the front, has a historic value.
It was gifted by the shipyard in Finland that the Voyager built in 1999, and is therefore just as old as the ship itself.
After taking over the reign of the ship since then – in 2002 – Captain Charles is proud of the Traveler and how far he has come over the years.
The ship sailed from Singapore to Darwin, Brisbane and then Sydney
The Voyager of the Sea from Royal Caribbean left for the first time since the $ 80 million makeover for a 14-day trip and arrived in Sydney on Monday

The scooter has a historic value, since it was donated in 1999 by a shipyard in Finland when the ship was first built
The bridge has a classic old school feel with an appropriate yet simple color scheme of sea blue carpet, ceilings, lounges and curtains
The 50-year-old spoke with Daily Mail Australia just before his ship ended his first voyage in Sydney since the big makeover.
& # 39; She's a fantastic ship, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; This ship is around 14,000 tons and we are three times larger than the Titanic. & # 39;
The 15-door Voyager, which is 311 m long and 38 m wide, can accommodate 3,989 passengers and 1,176 crew members.
In 1999, when the Voyager was first built, it was the largest cruise ship in the world. Now it is the Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas of the Royal Caribbean.
Voyager commander, who recently underwent a large dry dock in October and only finished two weeks ago, has fulfilled the childhood dreams of Captain Charles.
He explained that his father and grandfather were both commanders of a ship.
& # 39; I knew I wanted to be a captain when I was five years old, but I never dreamed of being a captain of a fantastic ship like this, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; It is something that all Norweigians dream of dreams and I come from three generations of captains. & # 39;
While the new and improved cruise ship has the addition of three specialty restaurants and a giant poolside movie theater overlooking the virtual ocean from the passenger cabins and the new pool-surfing attraction, called the FlowRider, Captain Charles remained untouched that his office only had a few upgrades at the bridge facilities and was also rewarded.
& # 39; If you love the ocean, this is a great place to be, & he said.

Above the iFly is the North Star, a glass sphere into which travelers step inside and are then taken 90 meters into the air.
Beyond the & # 39; first at sea & # 39; attributes is a & # 39; first ever & # 39; – the Bionic Bar, which has two robotic arms – called B10 and N1C – serve cocktails that order patrons via tablets.
When it comes to entertainment, the ship has a music hall and also Two70, an entertainment location where currently Mamma Mia and Starwater productions are held.

The most important among them is the Bionic Bar – where patrons are served by robotic bartenders
The cyborg arms – called B10 and N1C – jump into pouring, moving and shaking action after cocktails are ordered via tablets
Another first is the North Star, a glass ball that circles around the ship and takes voyagers up to 90 meters high
The North Star is designed to provide views that are usually only experienced by helicopter passengers
The Quantum has been advertised as the most environmentally friendly cruise ship in operation, 20 percent more fuel efficient than the already existing Oasis and Allure Of The Seas lines from Royal Caribbean.
It is the first to introduce an Advanced Emission Purification system, which reduces sulfur dioxide emissions, and Quantum works exclusively on LED lamps that completely rid themselves of incandescent lamps.
