Crazy Eights: Royal Caribbean Beefs Up in Europe for 2010


Eight is enough for Europe says Royal Caribbean International. The line will deploy eight ships in Europe for 2010, with voyages ranging from four to 14 nights, and three- to five-night cruise-tour vacation extensions in the Mediterranean, and Northern and Western Europe. In addition to Independence of the Seas, Royal Caribbean also will position three Voyager-class ships in the region for the very first time, with Adventure of the Seas making its European debut. In total, Royal Caribbean will visit 22 countries and 55 ports. Bookings are now open.

Royal Caribbean is sending the same number of ships in 2010 as it did last year, but the 3,114-guest Adventure of the Seas is replacing the 1,804-guest Legend of the Seas, boosting the line's capacity by 1,310 berths.
