Record Seven Royal Caribbean Ships in Europe Next Summer

Royal Caribbean International will deploy seven ships to Europe next summer, its largest ever fleet in the region. RCL has plans for six vessels in Europe this summer. Guests will have the opportunity to cruise on the new Independence of the Seas, slated to debut in May 2008 in Southampton, England. The ship will offer 14-night Western Mediterranean sailings. Europe has become a hotbed for cruising and many cruise lines have repositioned much of their inventory to the region for summer cruising. "Our increased capacity in Europe reaffirms Royal Caribbean's strong commitment to the region, which has shown tremendous growth in the recent years," says Adam Goldstein, president of Royal Caribbean International.
