Royal Caribbean Expands Europe's Voyager-Class Options
Royal Caribbean, which is deploying a Voyager-class ship in Europe in 2006 for the first time ever, will assign another there in 2007. The company has just announced that the 138,000-ton, 3,114-passenger Navigator of the Seas will spend the summer of 2007 based at England's Southampton, a port that serves London.

Navigator's move follows that of the identical (in size) Voyager of the Seas, which will spend summer 2006 in Europe. That ship will sail Western Mediterranean itineraries from its seasonal homeport in Barcelona.

While the addition of Navigator of the Seas to the European market is a clear sign that Royal Caribbean sees the region as a real growth market, it's important to point out that the vessel will actually replace the 69,130-ton, 1,804-passenger Legend of the Seas, which has been handling Southampton-based summer trips. As well, Royal Caribbean has pretty much limited its marketing of that ship and those itineraries to United Kingdom travelers and will continue to do when Navigator of the Seas comes to town.

Specific itineraries for Navigator of the Seas have not yet been announced but the ship will sail some Baltic cruises -- returning, perhaps, to the Baltic Sea where it was birthed, so to speak.
