The thriving capital of Antigua, St. John, is a populated neighborhood with charming narrow streets that climb up to the silvery domes of the Cathedral of Saint John. The beach, with wonderful bars and cafes, attracts many people.
Fort Lauderdale is famous for its vibrant beach, endless golden beaches, shopping and night life full of tension. Known as the "Venice of America", because of its 480 km of water channels, is indeed the jewel of the Gold Coast of Florida.
Labadee is a paradise island in the Caribbean, a unique destination with beautiful beaches, breathtaking scenery and amazing activities in the water. Try a thrilling ride paraseiling and admire the view from above as it crosses the sky 120 meters above the beautiful peninsula. Not forget to buy handmade local artwork, woodwork and crafts.
San Juan is the second oldest city in North and South America. The houses in pastel colors, balconies with wrought iron, squares with rows of statues and blue narrow cobbled streets are a conspicuous contrast to this noisy, modern,full of energy city . Although the city is busy all day long, the old San Juan, really comes alive at night when the restaurants, pubs and cafes on the sidewalks are flooded with people of all ages enjoying the fantastic scenery of the island.
Surprisingly, the central square of St. Kitts, is designed in the style of London's Piccadilly Circus. For a view of St.Kitts, take the decker train going round the island, passing by the Brimstooun Fort and other attractions. Alternatively, there is a great tour that initially makes a stop at the world famous studio Karimpel Batik before walking tour in the forest.
The idyllic Caribbean island of St. Thomas is famous not only for its beautiful beaches and crystal waters but also for its duty-free market. Look for duty free shopping, from drinks to imported Chinese porcelain, diamonds and crystals. The capital of the island and the U.S. Virgin Islands is Charlotte Amalie. Enjoy the island’s world-renowned golf course, picture-perfect beaches and spectacular nightlife.
The unique Caribbean island, St. Maarten, is governed by two independent states, and although each half of the island is different, the residents live in harmony. The Dutch part, the capital of Philipsburg is a paradise for shopping, with a fantastic selection of shops and boutiques on the cobbled streets and narrow alleys.

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.
