Royal Caribbean cruises break new ground in Europe in 2012
Royal Caribbean will be placing 12 ships, including two Freedom Class ground-breakers, in Europe for its 2012 cruise and cruisetour season.
Highlights for the 2012 Europe season include:
The FlowRider is just one of the exciting activities on Independence of the Seas
For the third consecutive year, Independence of the Seas will be positioned year-round in Southampton, primarily operating on an alternating series of 14-night Mediterranean Treasures and Italian Mediterranean programmes.
Three ten and 11-night Canary Islands itineraries will be available in October and November. Independence of the Seas will also offer one three-night sailing, overnighting in Paris (LeHavre, France) in May; and a four-night cruise spending the night in Cork (Ireland).
Liberty of the Seas and Independence of the Seas will offer guests onboard features such as the FlowRider surf simulator, the H20 Zone water park, a boxing ring, whirlpools, and the four-bedroom, four-bathroom Presidential Family Suite that sleeps up to 14.
In addition to the 12 homeports, Royal Caribbean International is also offering eight “interports” – where guests can board itineraries en route – creating 20 options for embarkation and disembarkation, including Toulon, Marseille and LeHavre, France; Genoa, Messina (Sicily), and Bari, Italy; Valencia, Spain; and Kusadasi (Ephesus) Turkey.
Serenade of the Seas will be making her debut in Europe in 2012
Further highlights include:
Navigator of the Seas begins its European season with an eight-night itinerary on 14 April from Barcelona (Spain), where, until 18 November, it will offer seven-night Mediterranean sailings
Royal Caribbean International is offering six cruisetours which enable guests to couple sailings with escorted land tour options.
Options include four nights in Madrid and Barcelona, available on Serenade of the Seas; five nights in Venice, Florence and Rome, available on Mariner of the Seas and Navigator of the Seas; three nights in Lake Como and Venice, available on Voyager of the Seas; four nights in Paris and London, available on Jewel of the Seas; and four nights in Istanbul and Cappadocia, available on Vision of the Seas.
