Royal Caribbean International entices more to cruise with its new itineraries to Alaska and enhanced experiences. 

Come 2020, the Ovation of the Seas will be the largest cruise ship and first of the brand’s Quantum Class ships to sail the Gulf of Alaska, along with two Radiance Class ships — Serenade of the Seas and Radiance of the Seas.

Departing on a seven-night itinerary from Seattle, Washington, Ovation of the Seas will take guests through the Endicott Arm fjord, learn about the Klondike Gold Rush in Skagway and even catch the Northern Lights in Juneau. 

Serenade of the Seas will sail seven-night itineraries along the shoreline known as the Inside Passage with calls at Ketchikan, Juneau and Icy Strait Point, while Radiance of the Seas seven-night itineraries takes passengers between Vancouver and Seward. 

Both Serenade and Radiance of the Seas offer ocean-facing glass elevators and floor-to-ceiling windows for optimal views of the majestic landscape.  

Those looking for an amped up sunny beach holiday can choose three- to four-night itineraries on the Navigator of the Seas instead. 

Navigator has gone through a $115 million modernisation to offer first-time features such as a Caribbean poolscape, two thrilling waterslides, the first blow dry bar at sea, “insta-worthy nightlife and dining” and exciting activities for the whole family. 

The ship first sets sail from Miami as soon as February next year and starting May, Navigator offers short Caribbean itineraries that will stop at Royal Caribbean’s private island in The Bahamas, Perfect Day at CocoCay. 

“Every detail matters, and we’ve mapped out an unmatched combination of innovative features and experiences for this top-to-bottom transformation of Navigator of the Seas,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. 

In another first, Royal Caribbean’s largest ship, Symphony of the Seas made her debut in Miami on November 9, its permanent home for the year, and will sail year-round seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries from Miami starting November 17.
