Famous for its unique atmosphere and cultural interest, Barcelona is one of the most vivid cities in Europe. Stroll along Las Ramblas, explore the cobbled streets of the Gothic section or visit the unfinished masterpiece of Gaudí, the Sagrada Familia. Alternatively, go on a bike tour through the old town and along the beach. Go for a walk in the park Guell Gaudi, a truly amazing oasis of plants, trees and buildings. Do not miss the Picasso Gallery, with more than 2000 works of the artist.
Take advantage of this beautiful Italian port, Livorno, as the starting point for exploring the nearby Pisa with its famous leaning tower, or to visit the walled city of Lucca, famous for its silk and olive oil production. Otherwise drive through the countryside of Tuscany to Florence to do the best shopping in Italy and admire the statue of David by Michelangelo and other artworks of the Renaissance.
In the shadow of the Vesuvius volcano, Naples is full of architectural treasures. Also hosts one of the most important archaeological museums in the world, the National Archeological Museum. Visit the ancient city of Pompeii or the beautiful island of Capri to enjoy the magnificent view from the mountaintop. Wander through the picturesque streets of the nearby Sorrento and try Lemontselo, a delicious lemon liqueur.

Message from Adam M. Goldstein, President and CEO
Welcome to Royal Caribbean International – a place where innovation and imagination reign supreme. From its very beginning, our company has been guided by the principles of designing ships and creating itineraries that lead to a cruising experience like no other – principles grounded on delivering the WOW to each and every one of our guests before, during and after sailing with us.
We take great pride in being able to introduce first-at-sea innovations such as the rock climbing wall, zipline and FlowRider® surf simulator to mention a few, as well as offering unparalleled entertainment experiences and to be the only cruise line to offer Tony Award®-winning Broadway shows. All of these onboard amenities offer us the opportunity to see how we can WOW our guests every time they cruise with us.
With more than 280 destinations worldwide and an amazing array of exciting shore excursions and cruisetour options, we provide our guests the chance to experience something new. Something only a Royal Caribbean cruise can offer – like glacier-trekking in Alaska; cave-tubing in Belize; biking through the vineyards of Dubrovnik, Croatia; experiencing the wonders of China; or simply doing nothing at all. That's just the beginning of the kind of exciting adventures and relaxing escapes our global cruises bring to vacationers around the world.
Our ships are also built to WOW. Our latest innovations on Quantum of the Seas, set to sail in November 2014, will feature such first-at-sea experiences like bumper cars, roller skating, simulated skydiving and The North Star, a jewel-like capsule that gently soars 300 feet above sea level. Plus, our Oasis class ships continue to WOW our guests with their unprecedented entertainment, dining and exclusive onboard amenities. We also continue to enhance the rest of our fleet and have already revitalized more than half of our 21 ships and will finalize the revitalizations with our Voyager class in 2014 and 2015.
All of this of course could not be accomplished without our most amazing asset – our crew. The men and women onboard our ships work tirelessly each and every day to ensure that all of our guests have the vacation of a lifetime.
We are committed to continue creating amazing new experiences for our guests in the years ahead. It’s our way of ensuring that we offer our guests the most innovative cruise ships, exciting and compelling itineraries around the world, and our renowned GOLD Anchor Service – what we call the Royal Advantage. We look forward to seeing you onboard and delivering the WOW to you and your family and friends.
