The cruise line will introduce a brand new ship to Sydney in Serenade of the Seas and delivers Queenslanders with their very own dedicated cruise ship, Radiance of the Seas. The ships will homeport from Brisbane’s International Cruise Terminal, located within a stone’s throw of the stunning South Pacific.
Serenade of the Seas – the younger sister to Radiance of the Seas – will sail from Sydney’s Overseas Passenger Terminal for the first time from October 2020 to April 2021, offering 18 dining venues, bars and lounges, as well as a rock climbing wall, 9-hole mini golf course and three pools.
The 2400-guest cruise ship boasts Whoopi Goldberg as her godmother plus lounges and bars not seen previously in Australian waters, including the Safari Club, Congo Bar and Zanzibar Lounge.
After an absence of three years, Royal Caribbean will return to homeporting in Brisbane with the 2400-guest Radiance of the Seas. Currently based in in Sydney, the line’s ‘culinary ship’ will call Brisbane’s brand new International Cruise Terminal at Luggage Point home, offering Queenslanders their first taste of the airy and light-filled cruise ship from their doorstep from November 2020 to April 2021.
Radiance of the Seas will arrive to Queensland fresh from a multi-million makeover following a dry dock in 2020, which will see a range of enhancements. More details to be announced in the near future.
Australian fan-favorite Voyager of the Seas returns to Sydney in October 2020. With capacity for 4000 guests, the vessel is widely considered the cruise ship which started the revolution for larger, newer and more feature-packed ships being deployed down under.
Last but by no means least, Australia’s largest and most technologically advanced cruise ship, Ovation of the Seas, returns for her fifth season down under.
Each cruise can cater to up to 4,900 guests, who will continue to enjoy incredible thrills such as the iFly skydiving experience, North Star viewing capsule and bumper cars included in their fare as standard.
Together, the four Royal Caribbean cruise ships will offer more capacity and more itineraries than ever before. There will be more than 80 sailings for Australian travelers to choose from, ranging from 2 to 19 nights to destinations in the South Pacific, New Zealand and Australia.
