RCI Fleet Changes
The cruise ship redeployment trend continues as Royal Caribbean has announced that some ships scheduled to sail Europe next summer will be moved to North America.

Royal Caribbean is shifting Rhapsody of the Seas and Grandeur of the Seas, two of the four vessels originally planned for Europe, to North American-based routes. Specifically, Rhapsody, which was slated for Northern Europe/British Isles voyages will spend the summer sailing western Caribbean cruises from Galveston.

Grandeur’s alternating weekly eastern and western Mediterranean voyages from Barcelona and Rome will be replaced with Mexican Riviera-based trips from May - September; the ship will then continue on her previously scheduled seven-night Western Caribbean sailings from New Orleans in October 2002.

The company will still maintain two ships in Europe next summer, however. Royal Caribbean’s newest, splashiest ship -- Brilliance of the Seas -- and Splendour of the Seas will see itinerary alterations within that region.
