Synonymous with mega cruise ships and jaw-dropping amenities, Royal Caribbean International takes the concept of a floating resort to a whole new level. Established in 1968 with the merger of three Norwegian shipping companies, Royal Caribbean's first cruise ship set sail in 1970. By 1978, the cruise line had set the trend of going bigger and better by chopping Song of Norway in half and adding a middle section to the ship – the first time this had been done to a passenger ship. Not satisfied with one revolutionary idea, Royal Caribbean has introduced onboard wave simulators, self-levelling pool tables, zip lines, water parks and more.

Royal Caribbean cruises depart from 44 ports worldwide and stop at more than 100 ports of call in Alaska, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Bahamas, Bermuda, Canada, New England, the Caribbean, Emirates, Europe, Hawaii and South America, including short break cruises, repositioning cruises and transatlantic cruises.
