AND UNRIVALLED INNOVATIONS FOR 2019-2020 SEASON

Cruise line inspires adventure with industry-changing ships sailing to more destinations than ever

Royal Caribbean International’s expanding global footprint is evident in the 2019-2020 deployment plans, thanks to having unparalleled product offerings in the Caribbean, four new ports of call in Europe, and the first-ever Quantum Class ship to visit the Alaskan frontier.  Combined with newly transformed ships designed to offer an unmatched short Caribbean holiday from the USA, Royal Caribbean is offering more adventures than ever for guests of all ages.

More Ways to See the Caribbean

Royal Caribbean is changing the game when it comes to short Caribbean cruise holiday offerings from the USA.  Newly modernised and purposefully redesigned with families in mind, two of the cruise line’s Voyager Class ships – Mariner of the Seas and Navigator of the Seas – will sail 3- and 4-night itineraries to The Bahamas. Touting favourites unique to Royal Caribbean, and new features catering to emerging trends and traveller preferences, both ships will represent the best product in the industry offering short, weekend holidays to the Caribbean.  Mariner will sail from Port Canaveral, Florida, while Navigator will be based in Miami where guests will be welcomed through Royal Caribbean’s new, state-of-the-art Terminal A in PortMiami.  Voyager Class changed the industry by introducing unexpected activities and adventures, including the rock-climbing wall, ice-skating rink and Royal Promenade.  Together with some exciting new features, they will be perfect introductions for first-time guests and families to experience the best of the Caribbean in a weekend.

Travellers from the Southwest of the USA also seeking short Caribbean getaways can take advantage of 4- and 5-night sailings on Enchantment of the Seas from Galveston, Texas to various destinations in Mexico, year-round.  Short Caribbean itineraries will be available to book the week of 20 November 2017.  All itineraries will be available to book by Crown & Anchor Society loyalty members one day prior to the general opening date.  

All four of the world’s largest cruise ships – Oasis of the SeasAllure of the SeasHarmony of the Seas and Symphony of the Seas – will set sail from Florida in 2019 through to April 2020.  Oasis of the Seas, the first ship in its class, will undergo a bow-to-stern transformation before homeporting at Royal Caribbean’s custom built Terminal A at PortMiami for the autumn and winter seasons, alongside her newest record-setting sister ship, Symphony of the Seas, which will be a year-round Miami resident.  After spending the previous year in Miami, Allure of the Seas will return to Fort Lauderdale’s Port Everglades, while Harmony of the Seas will make Port Canaveral her new home.  This move to Central Florida brings first of its kind innovations like the Ultimate Abyss – the tallest slide at sea – within driving distance for markets throughout Florida, Georgia and the southeast region of the USA.  All four Oasis Class ships will sail 7-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries, Liberty of the Seas will sail 7-night Western Caribbean from Galveston, Texas and Freedom of the Seas will sail 7-night Southern Caribbean itineraries from San Juan, Puerto Rico.  The 7-night Caribbean itineraries are available to book the week of 13 November 2017.

For the autumn season, Anthem of the Seas will offer 9-night itineraries to Canada and New England.
