All new adventures are on the horizon for Royal Caribbean. The cruise line has just unveiled a raft of fresh features for its 2019-2020 season, and some of them will have you excitedly marking your calendar in anticipation.
For the first time ever, Royal Caribbean is sending a Quantum Class vessel to Alaska.The Ovation of the Seas will be homeporting in Seattle during the Northern Hemisphere summer, cruising up the west coast of North America. The stunning ship will treat guests to majestic views of glaciers carved out over a 100 years, Alaskan wilderness and the Northern Lights. All these spectacular sights can be viewed from an incredible 90 metres above sea level in the North Star - Ovation’s glass observation capsule which offers cruisers breathtaking panoramic vistas. Royal Caribbean is offering 7-night itineraries aboard the Ovation, visiting ports from the remote state capital of Juneau to Victoria, B.C.
While Ovation is the first Quantum Class ship to cruise Alaskan waters, it won’t be the only Royal Caribbean vessel to sail in this larger-than-life wonderland. The Radiance of the Seas will also be offering 7-night sailings, between Seward, Alaska and Vancouver, British Columbia. Cruisers can book their spot aboard the Ovation or Radiance of the Seas from 11 December.
If cooler climates aren’t really your cruising cup of tea, Royal Caribbean still has you covered for the 2019-2020 season. The cruise line is offering guests 3-and 4-night itineraries aboard two Voyager Class ships which have been freshly modernised and redesigned with family cruisers in mind. Mariner of the Seas will be sailing from Port Canaveral Florida, and her sister Navigator of the Seas will be based in Miami. Both Voyager Class vessels will give guests the chance to enjoy activities such as rock-climbing and ice-skating, all while luxuriating on a short tropical break in the sun soaked Caribbean. These short itineraries, perfect for cruisers seeking an island getaway but can’t spare a lot of time, are just a small sample of the line’s Caribbean offerings in 2019-2020. Keep an eye on Royal Caribbean cruises for some spectacular tropical escapes.
As if all this wasn’t enough, Royal Caribbean is introducing four new ports of call in Europe for 2019-2020.
