The world’s largest cruise line, Royal Caribbean International, has packaged three exotic back to back sailings especially with 50+ cruisers in mind, drawing from its spectacular array of ocean cruises across the globe.
Retired travellers with a little more time on their hands will relish the opportunity to visit multiple exotic destinations around the globe on a single cruise, allowing them to unpack just once and sail in comfort for up to 51 days.
“We know that the destination mix is important for those who have already travelled to many places in the world, which is why Royal Caribbean has packaged these unique itineraries featuring a range of exotic and lesser known locales”, said Sean Treacy, commercial director, Royal Caribbean Cruises Australia.
Royal Caribbean is known the world over for its international style of cruising and state-of-the-art facilities, including an array of dining options, enrichment programs, rock climbing walls and even FlowRider surf simulators.
“Great for couples, solo travellers and first time cruisers, these distinct itineraries also offer plenty of onboard activities for all levels of fitness and mobility”, Treacy said.
