MIAMI -- The rock-climbing walls affixed to the smokestacks of Royal Caribbean International's newest ships will be installed on the rest of the Royal Caribbean fleet by the end of this year, the company said.

The walls were an industry first when introduced on the line's first Voyager-class vessel in 1999.

The retrofit will start with the Monarch of the Seas in late May and is scheduled to be completed by November with the Legend of the Seas.

Dan Hanrahan, Royal's senior vice president of marketing and sales, said the rock-climbing walls, which are featured in the line's ad campaign, have become a brand icon.

"Increasingly," he said, "the rock-climbing walls have become the symbol of the active ... spirit we are known for."
