Royal Caribbean Launches Ocean Voyages Special Sailings

Royal Caribbean has launched Ocean Voyages, a collection of special sailings that offer onboard programs, new shore excursion packages, and 2014 sailings between Europe and the Americas. Vacationers can choose among 11 Royal Caribbean ships that call at more than 35 exciting destinations on Ocean Voyages, which also include late-2014 sailings aboard Oasis of the Seas, and the next-generation Quantum of the Seas.

As part of the collection launch, Royal Caribbean is offering a complimentary premium beverage package for all new individual bookings made in balcony- and suite-category staterooms on 13 select 2014 Trans-Atlantic Ocean Voyages. Eligible guests will enjoy a wide selection of call and premium brand cocktails, beers and house wines by the glass, as well as non-alcoholic cocktails and fountain soda, on their passage across the ocean. The complimentary premium beverage package offer is available now through Oct. 15, 2013 and vacationers must ask for option code SPV3 to receive the offer.

Guest also can sign up for new Ocean Voyages shore excursion packages, which includes 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 customized to its specific itinerary; start at $99 per guest; and offers a great value on shoreside adventures. Options include visiting side-by-side caldera lakes, one green and the other blue, on “Sete Cidades Crater Lakes” at Ponta Delgada, The Azores; or explore Mt. Teide National Park in Tenerife, the Canary Islands, on “Canadas del Tiede.” At Funchal, Madeira, guests can choose “Emblematic Madeira & Ribeira Brava” to enjoy a sample Poncha, a local drink made with rum and honey.

On board, guests will enjoy Royal Caribbean’s amenities, including surfing on the FlowRider surf simulator on Liberty of the Seas and Independence of the Seas; ice skating their way across the Atlantic in the Studio B ice rinks aboard Adventure of the Seas; and becoming a billiards expert on the self-leveling pool tables aboard Brilliance of the Seas and Serenade of the Seas

Guests can also check out new or signature restaurants, up to 10 per ship, such as Chef’s Table, Chops Grille Steakhouse, Izumi Asian Cruise, Giovanni’s Table, and Rita’s Cantina for an additional charge, and complimentary restaurants, such as the Park Café gourmet deli and Boardwalk Dog House.
