Adventure is calling! 2023-2024 cruises are now available for booking. Whether you dream of trekking across the glaciers of Alaska, riding waves in Hawaii, island-hopping across the Caribbean, or exploring ancient capitals throughout Europe, Royal Caribbean takes you to the world’s top destinations. And arriving in 2024, the new Icon of the Seas℠ debuts the best family vacation in the world. Brace yourself for the largest waterpark at sea, Category 6. Or choose from seven pools, including Royal Bay℠, the largest swimming pool on a cruise. Plus, max out memories like never before on 7-night adventures to wow-worthy islands in the eastern and western Caribbean, including stops at the cruise line’s private destination, Perfect Day at CocoCay in The Bahamas — on every sailing. Here are some highlights of the best cruises in 2023 and 2024. Don’t wait. Start planning your vacation early and score some big travel savings.


When it comes to exploring Alaska’s untamed beauty, nobody does it as well as Royal Caribbean. Our biggest and boldest Quantum Class ships, Quantum of the Seas® and Ovation of the Seas® are well equipped to take you deep into the Last Frontier. Each loaded with innovative feats like simulated skydiving and the soaring North Star® observation capsule that offers 360-degree-views of the surrounding landscape. That’s not all, though — returning favorites Radiance of the Seas® will head north again to sail week-long Alaska itineraries. Both are decked out with more glass than any other ships in the fleet (think floor-to-ceiling windows, ocean-facing glass elevators and more) — perfect for soaking up wild views as you sail through Alaska’s breathtaking fjords. With stops in scenic Skagway, culture-rich Ketchikan and vibrant Juneau — not to mention more opportunities to see glaciers from your cruise and up close on hikes — each itinerary offers endless fun beneath the Midnight Sun.


It’s no secret that Royal Caribbean® offers epic Caribbean cruises. And each year, it finds new ways to raise the bar. True to form, the 2023-2024 cruise season will be the boldest yet for island hopping, with seven world-class ships sailing to the top-rated shores of the easternwestern and southern Caribbean.  Like Grand Cayman, Jamaica, Aruba and the award-winning private island Perfect Day at CocoCay. In 2023, the fleet’s newest addition, Wonder of the SeasSM, launches 7-night adventures from Port Canaveral. Fort Lauderdale welcomes first-timer Symphony of the Seas® for bolder shore exploring, and Odyssey of the SeasSM returns for tropics treks to the Cayman Islands and Curaçao. Plus, Oasis of the Seas® is back in the Magic City with sailings to Perfect Day at CocoCay on nearly every itinerary. Meanwhile, Harmony of the Seas® offers thrills of Oasis Class proportions from Galveston.

And arriving in 2024, Icon of the SeasSM  brings a first-of-its-kind Royal Caribbean® adventure for the whole family with sailings to eastern and western Caribbean islands, including stops at the cruise line’s private destination, Perfect Day at CocoCay in The Bahamas. But that’s not all — you’ll also be able to chase adventure through the tropics onboard fleet favorites Vision®, Serenade®, Grandeur®, Jewel® and Voyager of the Seas®.


The 2023-2024 cruise season will also offer lots of opportunities to maximize your weekends, with plenty of 3- and 4-night Caribbean getaways from Florida and Galveston. Choose between eight thrill-filled ships — including the Amplified Freedom of the Seas® sailing from Miami, Brilliance® and Rhapsody of the Seas® sailing from Tampa, and Adventure® and Grandeur of the Seas® sailing from Galveston. You can also cruise from Port Canaveral onboard the Amplified Mariner and Independence of the Seas®, or from Fort Lauderdale onboard Liberty of the Seas®. No matter which ship you sail on, each of these itineraries lets you fit plenty of thrills — or time to chill — into just a few days, with stops at fan-favorite destinations like Nassau, Cozumel, Costa Maya and our private island, Perfect Day at CocoCay.


You won’t believe where adventure can take you when you sail from our northeast ports during our best season yet. Tour the tropics on sun-drenched sailings to Perfect Day at CocoCay, The Bahamas’ picture-perfect beaches, and exotic southern Caribbean isles like Antigua, St. Maarten and St. Lucia. Go bolder than ever before in Bermuda, with overnight stays and a new itinerary that stops at iconic eastern Caribbean ports — like St. Maarten and Puerto Rico. Or bask in the beauty of the Great White North with summer and fall getaways to New England and Canada’s wild, windswept shores. Sail from Cape Liberty onboard Anthem of the Seas®, from Baltimore on Enchantment of the Seas®, or from Boston onboard Serenade of the Seas®.


Bringing adventure back to the west coast for the first time in over a decade. See just how many new discoveries you can fit into a weekend onboard the Amplified Navigator of the Seas®sailing from Los Angeles. You can soak up Old World charm on Catalina Island, venture into Baja’s prestigious wine country and unwind on Cabo’s world-famous beaches. All onboard a ship that beckons with thrilling waterslides, a sprawling resort-style pool deck and cocktail bars that channel major island vibes. Do it all in just a few days on a short 3- or 4-night getaway, or wander further on a 7-night adventure with stops in historic Mazatlán and pretty Puerto Vallarta. Whether you choose to level up your weekend or spend a full week exploring the Mexican Riviera, get ready to make memories.
