Cruise International

Royal Caribbean‘s Allure of the Seas will call the Mediterranean home from summer 2015. Allure of the Seas will arrive in Barcelona on 3 May 2015 and will offer cruises from the Spanish port until October 2015.

This will be the first time the world’s largest cruise ship will be in Europe, following a Mediterranean micro-season from sister ship Oasis of the Seas during late summer 2014.

Stuart Leven, managing director, Royal Caribbean International, UK and Ireland said:

“At Royal Caribbean International we have always delivered the unexpected and enjoyed behaving in a way that no other cruise line can. Not only are we increasing our European deployment, but we are doing it in impressive style.”

The news also comes ahead of the announcement that new ship, Anthem of the Seas joining the Royal Caribbean International fleet in spring 2015, will be based in Southampton.

Allure of the Seas will offer seven night cruises from Barcelona calling at Palma de Mallorca, Marseilles for Provence, La Spezia for Florence and Pisa, Civitavecchia for Rome and Naples. Guests will also have the option to travel to Rome and join the ship in Civitavecchia for a week long cruise starting and ending in the Italian port.
