Royal Caribbean Announces 2004 Itinerary Changes
Royal Caribbean International has announced some major (and also some minor) changes in itineraries and ship deployments for 2004. Among those decisions making big waves:

*The 140,000-ton Voyager of the Seas will spend next spring/summer in New York and offer an interesting blend of itineraries – alternating five-night Canada/New England voyages with nine-night Western Caribbean trips. The idea (beyond offering trips to destinations from New York not already covered by other cruise lines) is to encourage passengers to book back-to-back trips.

*Royal Caribbean adds Baltimore to its list of seasonal home ports; that Mid-Atlantic city is becoming increasingly popular as a port of embarkation and debarkation. Grandeur of the Seas, which will sail from Baltimore from July – October, will offer seven-night Western Caribbean sailings as well as 10- and 11-night Caribbean cruises. There will be two Canada/New England trips, as well.

*Just like last year, Royal Caribbean will have three ships in Alaska next summer. What's different is that Vision of the Seas, which has the Vancouver-to-Seward (and reverse) assignment, will add a new port to the itinerary. This ship will call at Icy Strait, an Alaskan version of a Caribbean private island; it has got an historic area and is also a prime wildlife-spotting site.
