Royal Caribbean Announces 2014/15 Australian Deployment

In the 2014-15 cruise season, Royal Caribbean will deploy 3 ships to sail the waters of Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific. The Voyager of the Seas, Radiance of the Seas and Rhapsody of the Seas will sail from Sydney, Australia on two- to 17-night itineraries throughout Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific.

The Voyager of the Seas will sail a variety of cruises extending from 9 nights to 13, sailing to both New Zealand and the South Pacific islands.

According to Royal Caribbean, these three ships are freshly revitalized and “will offer [Royal Caribbean guests] the widest range of onboard dining options, breathtaking entertainment and exclusive amenities that deliver the most contemporary vacation experience in the region.”

The deployment of these three Royal Caribbean ships is the largest Royal Caribbean deployment to Australia in their history. This also represents a significant increase of staterooms available to the Australian market, which has expanded greatly in the past few years.
