Royal Caribbean Marks End Of Summer Cruise Season

April 23, 2019 Cruise No Comments Email Email

Royal Caribbean’s Radiance of the Seas makes her final call to Sydney for the season today, marking the end of another monumental summer for RCL Cruises’ trifecta of cruise lines sailing down under – Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Club Cruises.

The final visit for the summer marks a bittersweet moment, as Australians bid a fond farewell to local favourite, Explorer of the Seas, while kicking off the countdown to the long-awaited return of twin-sister Voyager of the Seas.

In just six months time, after spending 18 months sailing from Asia, Voyager of the Seas will arrive direct from drydock in Singapore after undertaking a multi-million dollar revitalization, adding a range of brand new features. Stay tuned – more details to be revealed soon.

With five ships based in Australia between October 2018 and April 2019, RCL Cruises offered an incredible selection of 83 cruises available throughout Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific, delivering an injection of close to $200 million to the Australian economy in passenger spend alone.

Australia’s largest and most technologically advanced cruise ship, Ovation of the Seas, sailed her third and longest season yet based down under. Culinary favourite, Radiance of the Seas, offered Royal Caribbean’s very first departure from Melbourne, as well as three cruises departing from Auckland. Meanwhile, Voyager Class vessels have become firm favourites in Australian waters, withExplorer of the Seas scooping an incredible seven awards at the inaugural Australian Cruise Critic Cruisers Choice Awards, including Best Overall Ship, Best Value for Money, Best Dining, Best Shore Excursions, Best Public Rooms, Best Embarkation and Bests for Fitness and Recreation.

Modern-luxury Celebrity Solstice sailed her seventh season from Sydney, while Azamara Quest visited Australian waters for the second time.

Radiance of the Seas will be the first of Royal Caribbean’s ships to return to Australian waters on 9 October 2019.
