Royal Caribbean lets you enhance your Europe adventure by adding a fully escorted land tour before your cruise. Cruisetours can last from 10-17 nights (including your cruise) and are available on most sailings that leave from Barcelona or Harwich. All cruisetours take you to the most fascinating and exciting destinations in Europe. And at night, you'll relax in some of Europe's finest and most centrally located hotels.
The Industry's Best Ships
There's no better way to get to your destinations than on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship. For the 2013 season, we will devote twelve ships to seeking the adventures of Europe and the Mediterranean:
Liberty of the Seas and Independence of the Seas are some of the world's largest ships to date, with innovative features to make your experiences onboard nothing short of incredible. This is the class that introduced the FlowRider surf simulator, as well as the H20 Zone water park, complete with interactive sculpture fountains, ground geysers and a cascading waterfall. For excitement of a less aquatic nature, guest citizens can spar with one of our instructors in a full-size boxing ring or relax in the solarium's cantilevered whirlpools. They extend 12 feet beyond the sides of the ship!
These two ships within this class will sail Northern Europe and Mediterranean cruises in 2013. The Freedom class will captivate the whole family. Adults will appreciate the distinctive appointments of the restaurants, Solarium, casino and theatre, plus the utility of ship-wide Wi-Fi and cell phone connectivity. A basketball court, full-size boxing ring, ice-skating rink and the largest rock climbing wall at sea will appeal to the athlete within, no matter what their age.
The Voyager class offers the excitement of a city at sea. Why not go for a walk down the Royal Promenade - a Main Street right in the middle of the ocean? Do figure-eights in the ice rink or take in the breathtaking views from the top of a rock wall? Or savor the signature steaks at Chops Grille or Old World authentic Italian cuisine at Portofino - our speciality restaurants? There's no end to the onboard amenities and activities that will welcome your clients. Voyager-class ships include Explorer of the Seas, Mariner of the Seas, Adventure of the Seas, Navigator of the Seas and Voyager of the Seas.
If you're looking for the ultimate Northern Europe or Mediterranean cruise vacation, the Voyager class will exceed your expectations.
Adventure of the Seas, Brillance of the Seas, Mariner of the Seas, and Voyager of the Seas are nothing short of spectacular. They contain some of the industry's most amazing features - a rock climbing wall, a basketball court and an ice-skating rink. Dare we say there's more? What about a theatre, a casino, a boulevard at sea - the Royal Promenade, a miniature-golf course and a spectacular three-story dining room? These ships are revolutionary masterpieces. Public areas vary by ship.
Gold Anchor Service
From the Captain who pilots the ship, to the waiters at your table and the spinning-instructor at the fitness center, we have a commitment to personal and friendly service that invariably impresses our guests. It's called Gold Anchor Service. And if you get the feeling that the entire crew is concerned with giving you the best cruise possible, then you've got the right impression.
Crown & Anchor Society
The Crown & Anchor Society is our way of recognizing our most loyal guest and rewarding them with exciting benefits to make their cruise experience even more enjoyable. There are three membership levels in the Crown & Anchor Society: Gold, Platinum, and Diamond. The benefits increase at each level. The more you cruise with us, the more you receive. There are plenty of great member benefits even after only one cruise. These perks include a subscription to our award-winning quarterly magazine, Crown & Anchor, special onboard events, and special savings certificates to use in our spas, casinos, bars, and more. Other benefits include an invitation to join us on our member cruises and receive savings on our most popular getaways.

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!
