About Royal Caribbean International
Traveling to multiple destinations on one trip usually involves lugging your outdoor equipment from place to place or hassling with check-ins and baggage claims among different airline. You can avoid this ordeal with Royal Caribbean International.


Founded in 1968, Royal Caribbean International is a cruise vacation company that reaches 280 destinations worldwide including Alaska, Europe, China and of course, the Caribbean.


Their ships range from the Majesty of the Seas with a gross tonnage of 73,941 and passenger capacity of 2,744 to the latest Oasis of the Seas, which can carry 5,400 passengers on its 220,000 gross tons.


Features vary among the ships. But the Freedom of the Seas, for example, boasts a rock climbing wall, ice skating rink, gym, spa and FlowRider, a wave simulator for surfing. See Resources for more information.


Routes change monthly among the ships but typical July itineraries include four nights in the Bahamas, six nights in China or seven nights on the Mexican Riviera.


Royal Caribbean does not restrict the amount, type or weight of luggage you can bring onboard. However, the airlines you take to get to the departure port may limit your baggage amount.
