Royal Caribbean International is offering 2014 Scandinavia and Baltic cruises from Hamburg, Germany, aboard Legend of the Seas. The cruise line is also offering new 2014 Europe Cruisetours, which combine a cruise with an land tour program exploring European cities and regions such as Madrid, Florence, Rome and more.
Legend of the Seas’ 2014 Scandinavia and Baltic cruises from Hamburg will open for sale on April 11, 2013, and the 2014 Europe Cruisetours are available for booking immediately.
Legend of the Seas is the latest ship in the cruise line’s fleet to undergo revitalization, and now offers guests more dining options, entertainment and amenities. All staterooms and bathrooms were refreshed and a new Family Suite has been added to provide family vacationers more room. Legend of the Seas’ guests enjoy eight restaurants, including the new Chops Grille, Izumi Asian Cuisine, Park Café and the Chef’s Table experience for 16 guests. In addition to Broadway-style musical revues in the main theater, guests also will have access to a new aerial-acrobatic event, which spans throughout the four-story Centrum.
Through the cruise line’s ongoing fleetwide revitalization program, most ships now feature some of the concepts that were introduced aboard the ground-breaking Oasis-class ships, such as new digital signage, bow-to-stern Wi-Fi service, flat-panel televisions in every stateroom, an oversized LCD movie screen overlooking the main pool, Concierge and Diamond Lounges for suite and Crown & Anchor Society member guests and the Royal Babies and Tots Nursery for guests six to 36 months old.
For the 2014 Hamburg sailings, Legend of the Seas will reposition from Stockholm to Hamburg on July 27, 2014, sailing a 14-night itinerary throughout the Baltic Sea that includes a three-day call at St. Petersburg, Russia; a maiden call for the cruise line at Fredericia, Denmark; and a return to Klaipeda, Lithuania –last called in 2008. Throughout Aug. 2014, Legend of the Seas will sail every Sunday on a seven-night, roundtrip itinerary from Hamburg, calling at Oslo, Stavanger, Geiranger and Ǻlesund, before departing on Sept. 7 for a 16-night trans-Atlantic sailing to Cape Liberty Cruise Port in Bayonne, N.J. Alternatively, vacationers also can embark in Oslo for the seven-night, roundtrip Norway itinerary, or for the ship’s trans-Atlantic crossing. Legend of the Seas will be joined by Oasis of the Seas, Liberty of the Seas, Independence of the Seas, Adventure of the Seas, Navigator of the Seas, Serenade of the Seas, Brilliance of the Seas and Splendour of the Seas in European waters in 2014.
Vacationers can choose among four Royal Caribbean Cruisetours that combine one of five ships with a three- to five-night land program.
Two Royal Caribbean Cruisetour programs combine a Mediterranean cruise aboard Serenade of the Seas or Splendour of the Seas with either a four-night Madrid & Barcelona or a three-night Italian Lakes, Como & Venice land tour. On the latter itinerary, guest spend two nights in Como of the famed Lake Como and visit the quaint Italian town of Bellagio. Another Italy cruisetour combines a Navigator of the Seas sailing with a five-night itinerary that includes attractions in Venice, Florence and Rome. Additionally, the Paris & London cruisetour combines a sailing aboard Adventure of the Seas or Brilliance of the Seas with a four-night itinerary that showcases Paris and London’s landmarks.
