From island hopping through the Caribbean to discovering the historic culture of the Mediterranean, immersing in the exotic mystery of the Far East or experiencing the iconic architecture down under, Royal Caribbean International offers the chance to visit multiple destinations over a relatively short period, which would be unachievable through standard vacations.

What’s more, the ships are destinations in themselves.
