Royal Caribbean to Offer Seven Unique Options in Europe for 2024

Seven Royal Caribbean ships will sail from nine different homeports in Europe for the summer 2024 cruise season.

Royal Caribbean International has begun bookings for the majority of its European 2024 summer sailings, with seven vessels servicing nine homeports with itineraries ranging from 5-17 nights.

This gives travelers many exciting opportunities to explore the history, culture, art, food, and more in Europe’s top destinations with the flair and convenience of a Royal Caribbean cruise.

Amazing Ships to Deploy to Europe

Europe is a top cruise destination, from northern European voyages to Mediterranean adventures to the British Isles, Iceland, the Norwegian fjords, and much more. In summer 2024, cruisers will have the chance to do it all from their favorite Royal Caribbean ships.

Seven vessels representing four unique ship classes are slated for deployment to Europe from May 2024, including;

  • Sister ships in the Radiance class, Jewel of the Seas and Serenade of the Seas
  • Voyager class sisters Voyager of the Seas and Explorer of the Seas
  • Quantum-class Anthem of the Seas and her related sub-class sister Quantum-Ultra-class Odyssey of the Seas
  • Oasis-class Oasis of the Seas

Oasis of the Seas, now amplified with $165 million worth of upgrades and renovations, will be the largest Royal Caribbean ship in Europe for the summer, and it will be her first season in the region since her month-long amplification in 2019.

While the features on the ships vary, aboard these vessels, cruisers can find everything Royal Caribbean is well-known for.

Try adventurous thrills with the Flowrider surf simulator, classic rock climbing walls, and Ripcord by iFly skydiving simulator; glide down the tallest slides at sea with The Ultimate Abyss; wonder at outstanding entertainment with air, ice, water, and theater production shows; dine on foods to suit every taste, and so much more.

Plentiful Homeports and Diverse Itineraries

With so many ships to spend the summer in the region, eager travelers will have their choice of homeports to set sail with Royal Caribbean.

Depending on the ship, voyages will begin from Southampton, England; Rome and Ravenna in Italy; Barcelona, Spain; Dubai, United Arab Emirates; Athens, Greece; and Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Yet the destinations aren’t limited to those homeport countries.
