Five things you didn’t know about Royal Caribbean’s transpacific cruises:
Snorkelling: Many islands in the South Pacific are surrounded by fringing reefs which are a haven for tropical marine life such as dolphins, squid and sea turtles. Consider pre-booking a snorkelling shore excursion to explore these natural wonders.
Onboard Activities: With so many days at sea, guests can take advantage of Quantum Class’ varied activities and attractions, including spa treatments, rock climbing and Broadway style shows. There really is something for everyone.
Transatlantic vs Transpacific Cruise: Transpacific cruises go from Australia to the U.S., with plenty of white-sand-beach-filled South Pacific ports in between. Take in sweeping views of the Pacific while stopping in exotic ports to see the secluded beaches of Vanuatu or the volcanic vistas of Hawaii. Meanwhile, transatlantic cruises sail between the U.S. and Europe.
Currency: Although most Pacific islands have different currencies, many ports accept Australian or American dollars, and larger cities will also accept credit cards.
Extended Holiday Packages: Royal Caribbean offers extended holiday packages that combine a transpacific cruise with additional land-based adventures. These packages allow guests to fully explore the region and make the most of their time away from home.
Two Quantum Class Market: Last year, Royal Caribbean welcomed back two Quantum Class ships to Australia; Quantum of the Seas sailing from Brisbane and Ovation of the Seas which homeports in Sydney.
Quantum of the Seas offers the boldest, most unique adventures Queensland has ever seen and a gateway to the picture-perfect islands of the South Pacific. As one of Royal Caribbean’s most high-tech ships, every sea day is as memorable as adventures onshore.
Ovation of the Seas is the third ground-breaking ship to join Royal Caribbean’s Quantum class. She holds over 4,905 passengers at full occupancy and 1,500 crew.
Quantum of the Seas and Ovation of the Seas offer exclusive first-at-sea experiences including the North Star viewing deck, RipCord® by iFLY® skydiving simulator, the Bionic Bar, SeaPlex, Two70, and the FlowRider surf simulator. Both ships feature 16 decks and guests can choose from a wide range of food and beverage options with a multitude of restaurants including Jamie’s Italian, Chops Grille and Wonderland.
