The Industry's Best Ships
There's no better way to get to your destinations than on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship. For the 2016 season, we will offer nine ships cruising Northern Europe and the Mediterranean. Our newest ships include:
Harmony of the Seas
On board Royal Caribbean International, innovation and imagination rule supreme - and never has it been truer than on our groundbreaking Harmony of the Seas. This ship features seven incredible neighborhoods, packed with first-at-sea experiences such as: the oceanside AquaTheater, Starbucks, Broadway hit musicals Hairspray, 3D movie theater, zip line, designer shopping at Coach and GUESS stores, and much more. There's something for everyone to discover on the most awe-inspiring ship the world has ever seen.
Hop on a classic carousel on the Boardwalk, then watch acrobats splash down in the AquaTheater, the first amphitheater at sea. Let imaginations soar in the Youth Zone - the largest kids' area at sea - or at the Pool & Sports Zone, where you'll find FlowRider surf simulators and zip line views. Unwind with a stroll in Central Park - a meandering garden lined with shops and fine restaurants - or melt away stress at Vitality Spa. Jazz up your evening with Tony Award-winning Broadway hit Hairspray, or hit the Royal Promenade for memorable moments with DreamWorks Experience characters. Join us onboard Oasis of the Seas, the ship that changed cruising.

Whether you want to dress up or dress down, Royal Caribbean International has an option for you. Indulge in an elegant four-course meal in our formal dining room, where you can enjoy authentic, local specialties of the region you're visiting. For casual dining, the Windjammer Cafe serves up dinner with spectacular ocean views. And the crisp fish and chips at the Seaview Cafe are reminiscent of those served in the small seaside cafes of the Mediterranean. Savor a steak at Chops Grille* or try our midnight buffet for late-night dining. Hungry, but don't feel like leaving the Blackjack table or lounge? Order from our Midnight Delight snack service, and your food will be delivered to you wherever you are on the ship.
*Specialty restaurants vary from ship to ship. Additional charges may apply.
Go off-Broadway with live productions in our magnificent theatre, featuring the outstanding talent of the Royal Caribbean Singers and Dancers. Our lounges and clubs offer something for every musical taste, from jazz and swing to disco and classic rock. Dance the night away, or lounge and sip cocktails with that special someone. Hit the revolving dancing floor under our stunning Crystal Canopy, a magical place for late-night dancing. And since all of our ships sailing in Europe have a teen center, your kids can be part of the nightlife too.
Our Colony Club is a great place to kick back and sip a cocktail with friends and people-watch or play a few hands of cards. Shoot a few friendly games of pool on the industry's only self-leveling pool tables. Relax and watch a game at the Scoreboard Sports Bar, or watch the sun set over the Italian coastline from high above deck in our glass-enclosed Viking Crown Lounge.
Try your luck and get ready to hit the tables Monte Carlo-style in our onboard casino, Casino Royale. Accommodating more than 200 people, we offer a range of the best table games and hot slots. Play a few hands of Blackjack, have a spin on the Roulette wheel, take a roll on the Craps table, or play a little Caribbean Stud Poker. Get lucky!
