Royal Caribbean has announced its Alaskan cruise itinerary for the 2014 season.
For 25 years, Royal Caribbean has been putting on cruises to Alaska and allowing holidaymakers to enjoy the splendour of the region. Two of Royal Caribbean’s ships, Rhapsody of the Seas and Radiance of the Seas (which have both been renovated) will be offering 34 cruises of 7 nights from Vancouver, British Columbia, and Seattle, Washington during 2014. The two ships have a great array of activities and facilities onboard to ensure that all passengers have the trip of a lifetime. With 11 different options for dining, and fantastic entertainment, including loads to keep your kids busy such as the Adventure Ocean kids’ programme, both you and your children won’t be able to pack everything in!
“Royal Caribbean has been unfolding the wonders of the Alaskan frontier for a quarter century and we continue to deliver this amazing destination like no other cruise line…Guests can explore this awe-inspiring destination while sailing aboard our recently revitalized ships that are Designed for WOW and enjoy Royal Caribbean’s friendly and engaging GOLD Anchor service from every staff and crew member. To further immerse themselves, vacationers also can choose an unforgettable Royal Caribbean Alaska cruise tour combining the best of land and sea in the region and without having to worry about any of the planning.”
— Lisa Bauer, executive vice president of Global Marketing and Sales, Royal Caribbean International.
Of course, alongside all the entertainment and activity onboard the ships, holidaymakers will be able to explore the fantastic Alaskan scenery on land. Royal Caribbean’s Cruistours are three-to-six nights and the company takes care of every single detail, including a wide range of amazing itineraries. For example, passengers will be able to spend a night in Denali National Park and take a trip on the Wilderness Express. This is an amazing train with glass domed cars that allows you to take in the majestic of the local scenery to the full. On the 10 night cruisetour, which is more family orientated, passengers will enjoy a behind-the-scenes trip to the Sea Life Centre in Alaska as one part of their three night onshore tour. The Sea Life Centre is great for children, as they can learn about the local wildlife and conservation, and go wildlife spotting themselves in the Denali National Park.
Other fantastic land tour options, available to the passengers of Rhapsody of the Seas and Radiance of the Seas, are four day tours exploring the Canadian Rockies or the Okanagan Wine Valley (to be introduced in 2014). A more comprehensive onshore tour, the Ultimate Cruisetour, which is based in the Canadian Rockies, is additional to a seven night cruise onboard the ship Radiance of the Seas, totalling an amazing 19 night holiday on both land and sea!
