Taking its passengers around the world, the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line features fun for all irrespective of one’s age. This is ensured via its different ship courses for selection, more than 100 ports to dock, a multitude of staterooms, an array of entertainment onboard, and a dedicated club for the regular/frequent passengers. With such flexibility of customization, the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line caters completely to the needs of their cruisers right from the first step in to the last step out. In this article, I will introduce some of its worth knowing features before you book any of its ships.
Right now, there are six classes of ships. One of them is the Oasis Class – the most novel one – offering the ships such as the Allure of the Seas and Oasis of the Seas. The Voyager Class features the Mariner, the Adventure, the Explorer, the Voyager of the Seas, and the Navigator; while the Freedom Class encompasses the Freedom, the Liberty of the Seas, and the Independence. On the other hand, the Radiance Class includes the Radiance, the Jewel, the Brilliance, and the Serenade of the Seas; whereas the Vision Class offers the Legend, the Grandeur, the Enchantment, the Rhapsody, the Vision of the Seas, and the Splendor. Lastly, the Sovereign Class holds the Monarch as well as the Majesty.
This list is going to be really very long as the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line conducts international sails from Europe to Australia and from the Caribbean to Asia including the Middle East as well as Alaska. The departure ports are Miami, San Diego, Ft. Lauderdale, Oslo, Copenhagen, Sao Paolo, Barcelona, and Istanbul. Most of the cruises start and end on the same port. There are more repositioning cruises whose departure ports tend to be in different destinations.
These are varied and plenty, but its selection completely depends on your budget as well as requirements. The range of these staterooms starts from a 152 square foot zone to chic suites of 1,100 to 1,500 square feet. Most of the ships have rooms that cater to the needs of physically impaired passengers. Loft suites are one of the main features of the ships of the Oasis class.
