Royal Caribbean Cruising To New Records
Royal Caribbean International reports that it set set new records recently, with the largest single booking day and the highest volume booking week, March 26 – April 1, in its 53-year history.
The strong demand and new bookings come on the heels of more than 1.5 million guests having sailed with the line since January 2021, alongside consistently record-high guest satisfaction ratings across its ships and private destinations, Perfect Day at CocoCay in The Bahamas and Labadee on the north coast of Haiti.
Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International, said that: “The enthusiasm and excitement for the successful return of cruising is undeniable. We could not have reached this incredible milestone without the unwavering support of our loyal guests, our valued travel advisors and partners, and the Royal Caribbean International team around the world,” “Everyone has made an incredible impact and contributed to this accomplishment in every single way.”
The new business records are celebrated in the midst of three major milestones for Royal Caribbean International: the inaugural season of the world’s newest wonder, Wonder of the Seas; the keel-laying ceremony for the highly-anticipated Icon of the Seas, the first Icon Class ship; and the start of construction for Utopia of the Seas, the next Oasis Class ship and first of its class to be powered by LNG (liquefied natural gas).
The bookings were received through the website, call centers and travel advisors with the support of Royal Caribbean International’s sales team. The cruise line encourages redemptions of future cruise credits through automation tools introduced in 2021 on the consumer website and trade site, CruisingPower.com, enabling both audiences to apply credits to new bookings more seamlessly.
