Home sweet home as Royal Caribbean bases three ships in the UK for summer 2013
Royal Caribbean is offering an abundance of European cruise options in 2013, with ships sailing from nine ports on the Continent, three of them in the UK.
In total Royal Caribbean International will offer 276 sailings to 88 culture-rich ports on 58 European itineraries.
With more 40 per cent of British passengers choosing to begin their cruise from a UK port, Royal Caribbean has responded by increasing its capacity for summer 2013 in line with this trend.
Independence of the Seas wil be based in the UK for summer 2013
In addition to Independence of the Seas, Adventure of the Seas and Brilliance of the Seas sailing from UK ports, Barcelona-based Liberty of the Seas and Serenade of the Seas, and Italy-based Navigator of the Seas and Splendour of the Sea, today Royal Caribbean completed its 2013 European deployment with the addition of Legend of the Seas sailing from Venice and Rome and Vision of the Seas homeporting in Copenhagen and Stockholm.
By summer 2013 seven of the nine Europe-based ships will have completed a multi-million dollar re-fit and re-design ensuring that the summer cruises on offer will be on the industry’s newest and most innovative fleet.
Says Jo Rzymowska,Royal Caribbean’s UK general manager: “2013 is a landmark in the history of Royal Caribbean International with three ships dedicated to the UK market during the summer. We are featuring more popular destinations such as the Baltics and the Norwegian fjords, and old favourites like the Canary Islands and Mediterranean all sailing from UK ports.”
