The one where Royal Caribbean announced their largest Australasian season…

Summer 2012-13 is set to be the largest Australasian season for Royal Caribbean International with three ships sailing in our waters.

Local favourite Rhapsody of the Seas returns along with her recently revitalised sister Radiance of the Seas and Australia’s first ever home-ported megaliner Voyager of the Seas.

28 itineraries, ranging from 1 to 18-night cruises, are encompassed in the 49 sailings over the summer period.

“This is truly the beginning of a new era in cruising from Australia. Voyager of the Seas will not only be the biggest ship based here but she also introduces unique concepts never before experienced at sea in the region,” said Adam Armstrong, commercial manager, Royal Caribbean Cruises Australia.

“Together with Radiance of the Seas and Rhapsody of the Seas, they will offer Australians an unprecedented quality of innovative superliners.”

New Zealand, the South Pacific and Australia will feature in Voyager of the Seas’ maiden season with 12-cruises scheduled from 23 November 2012.

In addition to the local sailings, passengers also have the option of two 14-night repositioning cruises between Singapore and Fremantle, Perth on either end of her season. These cruises incorporate visits to Bangkok, Thailand and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Like her sister Radiance, Rhapsody of the Seas will also undergo a multi-million dollar revitalisation in March 2012 prior to returning to Australia in October.

Earlybird Savings of up to $1000 per person off brochure fares are available for bookings made before 30 December 2011 with launch prices up to 10% lower than last year.
