Find the best Royal Caribbean sales for Australians.

Royal Caribbean’s fleet includes four of the five largest cruise ships in the world. With fine dining, swimming pools, shopping, movie theatres and even ice skating and zip-lining on board, Royal Caribbean’s cruise ships can feel more like a small floating city than a boat.

With facilities like these, it’s no surprise that cruises are becoming more and more popular in Australia each year, as is the demand for the best cruise deals out there.

Royal Caribbean is adding a new ship to its Australian itinerary for the 2016-2017 season, Ovation of the Seas. If you’re looking for deals aboard it or any other ship in the fleet, you’ve come to the right place.

Royal Caribbean's coronavirus (COVID-19) cancellation and changes policy update

As of 2 April 2020, Royal Caribbean has cancelled cruises globally until 11 May 2020.

The company has also introduced a Cruise with Confidence policy, where, if you make a new booking on a cruise departing before 31 July 2020, you can cancel in as little as 48 hours prior to departure and get a full credit valid until 31 December 2021.

If you're already set to cruise before 11 May and your sailing has been cancelled, a similar policy applies to your cancelled cruise. You can get either a full refund or a future cruise credit worth 125% of your sailing that you can use on a new cruise departing before 31 December 2021.
