Royal Caribbean’s 2018 European Odysseys feature eight ships, including new Symphony of the Seas

Across Europe in 2018, adventure awaits guests on eight of Royal Caribbean's innovative ships, with Spanish landmarks, Italian landscapes, French icons, Greek legends and Nordic Castles, in a collection of more than 110 European odysseys.

There is also a brand new port-of-call for the 2018 summer season: Holyhead on the Isle of Anglesey, where the combination of Welsh peaks, lakes and waterfalls will capture guests’ adventurous spirit.

For the first time Vision of the Seas will be offering 12-night cruises from Barcelona

Destinations returning to European itineraries in 2018 include Flam, Molde, and Skjolden in Norway and Isafjordur, Iceland.

Making her debut in Barcelona in April, Symphony of the Seas, the fourth sister ship in the Oasis-class, will spend her inaugural summer season sailing the striking blue waters of the Western Mediterranean.

She will offer seven-night itineraries from Barcelona to Palma de Mallorca, Spain; Provence, France; Florence/Pisa, Rome and Naples/Capri, Italy, where travelers can discover the breathtaking views from atop Barcelona’s La Sagrada Familia Cathedral, and revel in the artwork of the old masters housed within the museums of Florence.

For those wishing to start and end their trip in Italy, round-trip sailings from Rome are also available.

New in 2018, Vision of the Seas will join Symphony for the season offering 12-night sailings from Barcelona with ports of call in Rome, Nice, Santorini and Athens. In Northern Europe, Brilliance of the Seas will sail new 12-night itineraries from Amsterdam visiting countries throughout the Baltics, Norway and the British Isles, including Holyhead.

Oasis-class returns to Barcelona with Symphony of the Seas, which will headline Europe’s summer season exploring the Western Mediterranean on seven-night sailings, round-trip from Barcelona or Rome.

Vision of the Seas will embark on new 12-night Greek Isles itineraries from Barcelona, plus 12-night Mediterranean adventures to France and Italy, including stops in Rome and Florence/Pisa, the Amalfi Coast and an overnight in Venice.

Brilliance of the Seas will call Northern Europe home for the first time, sailing 12-night itineraries from Amsterdam, exploring the Baltics and British Isles, featuring for the first time Holyhead.

British favourite Independence of the Seas returns to Southampton, offering three- to 14-night voyages to the Mediterranean and a 14-night adventure to the Canary Islands all from Southampton. Navigator of the Seas will join Independence, sailing five- to 14- night itineraries.

Serenade of the Seas will offer seven-night sailings to the Norwegian Fjords, plus the ultimate Scandinavia and Russian adventure with departures from Copenhagen and Stockholm.

Fresh from a $3m makeover, Jewel of the Seas will sail seven- and nine-night sailings though the Greek Isles and Western Mediterranean. Rhapsody of the Seas will return to Venice with seven-night excursions to the Greek Isles, and Greece and Croatia.
