Choose one of the RCI’s ships only if you are super excited by the overwhelming desire to enjoy a super fun sea vacation at (probably) reasonable prices.
Our Royal Caribbean Xmas and New Year prices are only suggestive, in US dollars. They are showing the line’s lowest rates on cheapest Interior category cabins. Royal Caribbean ships are ordered alphabetically. All RCCL Holiday offers listed below include only itinerary information, and are not deals for sale. December and January dates of arrival in ports of call are placed in brackets. This is the link to the line’s official website.
Royal Caribbean Christmas Cruises
The Royal Caribbean’s best features are the world’s biggest cruise ships ever, top sea travel destinations, signature uniqueness and daring prices – for a very merry Royal Fun Santa Claus ship cruise vacation.
The list of exotic Royal Caribbean Xmas destinations includes Asia (from Singapore and China), Australia (Sydney to NZ and the South Pacific Islands), South America (from Brazil) and Europe (Mediterranean itineraries with UK departures).
Just like with the rest of all big cruise ship lines, the majority of Royal Caribbean cruises for Christmas 2016 are round-trip sailings to Caribbean, with departures from Florida (Miami, Tampa, Fort Lauderdale, Port Canaveral). Royal Caribbean Caribbean cruise ships also depart from New York (New Jersey), Baltimore, Galveston, New Orleans, plus the unique round-trip departures from Puerto Rico (San Juan) and Panama (Colon).
Royal Caribbean New Years Eve Cruises
The Royal Caribbean cruise ships New Year specials feature unique onboard activities and signature activities offered by no other line. The special cuisine and one-time-in-the-year-only entertainment menu on the ship is another reason to spend the year’s merriest time at sea. As to the prices on RCCL cruise package deals on Holidays -“Saving Money on Holidays Keeps Me Royally Happy” is not suitable for a RCI motto. Their ticket prices are not cheap, and often perfectly match the size of their ships.
Following the most common pattern for big lines Holiday itineraries, the majority of Royal Caribbean cruises for New Years are round-trips departing from Florida ports (Miami, Tampa, Fort Lauderdale and Port Canaveral). Another set of highly popular deals includes the round-trips to Caribbean leaving from New York (NYC and Bayonne NJ), Baltimore, Galveston and New Orleans, along with the line’s deals from Puerto Rico and Panama.
