Royal Caribbean unveils biggest program to date
By admin

Royal Caribbean International has unveiled its biggest Australasian program to date for 2014-15, with the cruise line confirming mega-liner Voyager of the Seas will undergo a multi-million dollar revamp just ahead of the season's start.

Voyager will be joined by Rhapsody of the Seas and Radiance of the Seas in local waters for the third consecutive summer.

Commercial director Adam Armstrong revealed that more than 140,000 guests from over 100 countries will sail with the cruise line over the season, with RCI to demonstrate its ongoing commitment to innovation at sea.

“We began with the revitalisations of Radiance of the Seas and Rhapsody of the Seas in 2011-12, and now we’ve come full circle as Voyager of the Seas will undergo a bow-to-stern refurbishment to offer even more amazing features,” he said.

More details will emerge later this year, but he hinted the revitslisation will see the vessel fitted with many of the features found on the cruise line’s newest Oasis Class ships.

Radiance and Rhapsody will arrive in Sydney in October 2014 for the season’s start with Voyager to join them in December 2014.

The program features 55 cruises from two to 18 nights in length, calling at 37 ports across Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific before the season’s end in April 2015.
