Royal Caribbean ships to cruise Europe 2013

Royal Caribbean International today announced that Liberty of the Seas, Navigator of the Seas and Serenade of the Seas will be among the cruise line’s ships in 2013 to offer sailings throughout Europe. Calling at 30 ports, the latest deployment plan features 121 sailings on 25 itineraries. Following the already announced Independence of the Seas and Adventure of the Seas’ deployment from Southampton, Royal Caribbean International’s 2013 Europe cruise offerings will feature five of the world’s largest and most innovative cruise ships, sailing to some of Europe’s must-see destinations. Royal Caribbean International’s 2013 Europe cruises for these five ships are open for booking and additional deployments in the region will be announced later in April.

“Royal Caribbean International is the perfect choice for couples and families to experience and share all the wonders, flavours and colours of Europe,” said Dominic Paul, Vice President & Group Managing Director for EMEA, Royal Caribbean International

“Liberty of the Seas, Navigator of the Seas, and Serenade of the Seas already offer holidaymakers so many things that other operators do not, such as the DreamWorks Experience onboard Liberty of the Seas, or a real ice-skating rink featuring breath-taking shows onboard Navigator of the Seas and even self-levelling pool tables onboard Serenade of the Seas. In fact, Royal Caribbean International will be the only cruise line to feature Madagascar 3 in 3-D at sea in Europe this summer onboard Liberty of the Seas, making it a perfect option for families.”

As the only ship in Europe to offer the DreamWorks Experience, as well as featuring Madagascar 3 in 3-D, Liberty of the Seas will delight guests with onboard entertainment featuring the lovable characters from DreamWorks Animation’s popular films. Guests can also watch DreamWorks Animation’s films in 3-D in the ship’s onboard 3-D cinema. Shrek and Fiona, Alex the lion, Po the Dragon Warrior, and many more characters also join in daily to greet guests, offer photo opportunities and lead themed-activities for kids.

Holidaymakers can also choose a Royal Caribbean International Europe Cruisetour to experience the not-to-be-missed destinations that lie inland in Spain in Italy. Royal Caribbean Cruisetours combine a sailing onboard one of the cruise line’s ships with an escorted land tour itinerary. Guests can choose from a five-night Venice, Florence & Rome Cruisetour, which features tours of the must-see attractions in the three cities followed by a sailing onboard Navigator of the Seas, or a four-night Madrid & Barcelona Cruisetour, which is coupled with a sailing onboard Serenade of the Seas.
