8 Ships in Europe for 2014
Royal Caribbean International will continue to scale back its ships in Europe in 2014, deploying only eight of its 22 vessels across the pond.
Demand for cruises in Europe continues to diminish as the price for air fare keeps summer travelers on this side of the pond. In 2012, Royal Caribbean had a record 12 ship (out of 22) in the region. For 2013, that number falls to nine with an additional ship dropping off the following year.
Royal's 2014 Europe deployment will include the Liberty of the Seas, Navigator of the Seas, Serenade of the Seas and Splendour of the Seas in the Mediterranean, and the Independence of the Seas, Adventure of the Seas, Brilliance of the Seas and Legend of the Seas in Northern Europe. Missing from this list is Vision of the Seas.
