MIAMI, April 18, 2011 – Royal Caribbean International today announced the redeployment of Navigator of the Seas for the 2011-12 winter season, offering a wider selection of Caribbean vacation options. The ship will now reposition to Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and sail a range of five- to nine-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries beginning November 20, 2011. Navigator of the Seas also offers a 14-night, trans-Atlantic itinerary from Rome to Port Everglades, departing November 6, 2011, and a 15-night return cruise to Rome on April 14, 2012. Sailings for Navigator of the Seas' winter 2011-12 cruises are open for sale.
Navigator of the Seas will alternate a six-night Western Caribbean with an eight-night Eastern Caribbean itinerary. Ports of call on the six-night sailings include Grand Cayman, the newly opened Historic Falmouth Port, and Labadee, Royal Caribbean's private beach destination on the north coast of Haiti. The eight-night sailing features calls at St. Maarten, St. Kitts, San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Labadee.
Additionally, a seven-night Eastern Caribbean itinerary, departing on January 8 and 22, 2012, subtracts a call at St. Kitts from the eight-night itinerary, while a seven-night Western Caribbean itinerary, departing January 15, adds a call to the six-night itinerary at Cozumel, Mexico. A special nine-night New Year's cruise, departing December 30, 2011, adds a call at St. Thomas to the eight-night Eastern Caribbean itinerary.
Vacationers have a wide range of Caribbean cruise options aboard 15 of the world's largest and most innovative cruise ships, sailing from nine convenient U.S. ports throughout winter 2011-12. Navigator of the Seas joins Oasis of the Seas, Allure of the Seas and Liberty of the Seas at Port Everglades to offer regular sailings to the Caribbean. Explorer of the Seas and Enchantment of the Seas offer Northeast U.S. vacationers convenient Caribbean cruise getaways from Cape Liberty in Bayonne and Baltimore, respectively, while Freedom of the Seas and Monarch of the Seas sail to the Caribbean and Bahamas from Port Canaveral on the Space Coast. Along the Gulf Coast, Voyager of the Seas, Mariner of the Seas and Jewel of the Seas offers convenient sailings from New Orleans, Galveston and Tampa, respectively.
