Royal Caribbean International sails into Europe for summer 2017 with itineraries that bring global experiences to the forefront of cruising. Holidaymakers will find themselves transported to some of the globe’s most iconic destinations via six of the brand’s extraordinary ships, together stacking up to deliver the ultimate European summer getaways.
Travellers will venture through the majestic isles of the Eastern and Western Mediterranean on Jewel of the Seas sailing from Italy on seven- and nine-night voyages that visit Greece and Turkey, as well as seven-night sailings through the Western Mediterranean – offered more frequently with additional departures dates in 2017 – visiting France, Spain and Italy. Among the ports-of-call will be Santorini, the Greek capital city of Athens, Turkey’s ancient town of Ephesus, Rome and Venice.
Royal Caribbean’s Freedom of the Seas will host guests on seven-night sailings through the Western Mediterranean, while Brilliance of the Seas navigates eight European destinations with a 12-night itinerary, both departing from Barcelona, Spain. Food and wine lovers will take note of the ship’s call in Naples, Italy – the birthplace of pizza and ever-popular lemon liquor, limoncello. Travelling east, holidaymakers will be able to explore the walled medieval town of Kotor, Montenegro, and relax at Becici Beach.
Independence of the Seas and Navigator of the Seas will sail the Mediterranean and the Spanish Canary Islands with itineraries that extend from seven to 14 nights. Departing from Southampton, guests can enjoy a range of sights including Nice, France, and the North African country of Morocco, which will add an exotic touch with its cultural kaleidoscope and spend a relaxed day in Agadir, on the far eastern shores of the Atlantic Ocean.
Serenade of the Seas and Vision of the Seas will head to northern Europe with a checklist of ports that includes Copenhagen, Denmark; Tromso, Norway; and the Swedish capital of Stockholm; as well as a day spent cruising the Arctic region laden with magnificent glaciers and unique wildlife.
