Royal Caribbean has launched a massive 10,000 free-flights give-away on its Mediterranean cruises.

The cruise line claims the offer is the biggest flight give-away ever made by a mainstream cruise line. The 10,000 free flights, open to bookings made between now and 20 December on select Mediterranean cruises, will save an estimated £2m for UK holidaymakers.

Jo Rzymowska, associate vice president at Royal Caribbean International, commented:

‘In a season of spending cuts that have dented consumer confidence, Royal Caribbean International is investing over £2m to help agents sell 2011 cruises at completely unbeatable value.’

Royal Caribbean is also preparing for the imminent launch of Allure of the Seas, which will be the world’s biggest cruise ship when it comes into service.

The ship is 360 metres long – 5mm longer than its sister ship Oasis of the Seas – 225,282 tons and accommodates 6,200 passengers.

Allure left the STX shipyard in Finland for its new home in Port Everglades, Florida on 28 October. It makes its maiden paying passenger cruise on 12 December to the Caribbean.
