Royal Caribbean To Base Ship In Palma de Mallorca

Cruise operator Royal Caribbean International has announced it will base a ship in its fleet at the Spanish destination of Palma de Mallorca. From summer 2011, the 74,000-GRT Grandeur of the Seas will be dedicated to the UK and Irish cruise market, joining the Independence of the Seas which from spring this year will sail year-round from Southampton.


The 2,446-guest vessel will sail 7-night or back-to-back 14-night cruises, offering greater access to smaller ports along the French and Italian rivieras and the Balearic Islands. The itineraries take guests to the Italian Mediterranean to discover some of the world’s most beautiful art and architecture, as well as the Spanish Mediterranean to explore the cities of Barcelona, Madrid and Toledo.


Onboard Grandeur of the Seas, guests will enjoy luxury accomodation, gourmet dining and an array of entertainment options, including Royal Caribbean’s original theatrical productions and live music entertainment, Casino Royale, day spa and fitness center, as well as the Adventure Ocean youth program for younger guests.


The 2011 summer season for the ship will go on sale in March 2010. Royal Caribbean International currently operates cruises around the world with a fleet of 21 vessels, including the world’s largest cruise ship, the 220,000-GRT Oasis of the Seas.
