Holidaymakers can choose among 11 RCI ships that call at 35 destinations on Ocean Voyages, which also include late 2014 sailings onboard the world’s largest cruise ship, Oasis of the Seas, and the next-generation Quantum of the Seas (www.RoyalCaribbean.com/OceanVoyages).

“Royal Caribbean International’s collection of Ocean Voyages offers unique and enriching WOWs,” said Carol Schuster, Senior Vice President of Marketing. “Our ships are world-renowned for their wide range of exclusive and innovative onboard features and our friendly and engaging Gold Anchor Service. Combined with exciting onboard enrichment and interesting itineraries, guests on these sailings will enjoy a distinctive experience that can only be found on Royal Caribbean International.”

Each Ocean Voyage will feature a guest expert, who will lead a line-up of entertainment programming and engaging activities, which feature spotlight topics such as culture, dance, film, visual arts, photography, and wines and cuisine. A highlight of every Ocean Voyage will be the Black & White Masquerade Party, so guests are encouraged to bring along a special outfit for the occasion.

Shore excursion packages include a choice of three options from a prix fix menu of some of Royal Caribbean’s most popular shore excursions at each port of call. Each ship’s shore excursion package is customised to its specific itinerary, starts at $99 per guest, and offers a great value on shoreside adventures. Options include visiting side-by-side caldera lakes, on ‘Sete Cidades Crater Lakes’ at Ponta Delgada, The Azores; or explore Mount Teide National Park in Tenerife, the Canary Islands, on ‘Canadas del Tiede’ for one of the best examples of alpine volcanic ecosystems. At Funchal, Madeira, guests can choose ‘Emblematic Madeira & Ribeira Brava’ to enjoy the view from Cabo Girao, Europe’s highest sea cliff, and sample Poncha, a local drink made with rum and honey.

All ships to sail Ocean Voyages will have completed revitalisation by early 2014. On Radiance and Vision class ships, guests will be ‘WOW’ed’ by the award-winning aerial-acrobatic entertainment production, which spans throughout the ship’s multi-story Centrum.
