About Royal Caribbean International
Royal Caribbean International is a brand with an incredible history and unlimited potential. The cruise line not only sets new standards by the size of the ships, but also by its degree of innovation. Especially the entertainment programm on their vessels is a new invention. The ships are convincing due to a variety of sport offers and leisure activities for every age group. Particularly the outdoor area offers great experiences with ice rinks or zip lines. However not only the big vessels, but also the smaller ones offer plenty options to have fun in a relaxed atmosphere. In the different restaurants you expect tasty dishes combined with an attentive service. On board, all age groups feel at home. Due to the company’s heritage a basic knowledge in English is recommended. Another thing to take into considerations is that the additional costs are higher than on German ships.
MS Voyager of the Seas has been put into service by Royal Caribbean Cruises in 1999. At that time she was the biggest cruise ship in the world with a length of 331 meters and a capacity of more than 3,000 passengers. In 2014 she went through a major refurbishment. This giant of the seas provides nearly all possible facilities on board, so the ship becomes a destination in itself.
