Royal Caribbean Launch First Cruise Connection From London Stansted

26 Apr 2011

Royal Caribbean International will launch their first direct cruise connection from London Stansted this summer, operated by British Airways charter flights to Venice.

Launching in June 2011, guests travelling from Stansted, will connect directly onto Voyager of the Seas, one of Royal Caribbean International’s activity packed cruise ships for a seven night Adriatic sailing.

Speaking about the new cruise connection, the airport’s Managing Director, Nick Barton said:

“European cruise markets continue to grow in popularity and with direct flight connections, guests can enjoy warmer climates and be settled into their cruise holiday within hours of departing the UK.

“We look forward to welcoming guests jetting away from Stansted for their cruise connection this summer, and wish Royal Caribbean International every success with this new service.”

Jo Rzymowska, Associate Vice President and General Manager, Royal Caribbean International, UK and Ireland, commented:

“Feedback from cruise travellers tells us that convenient flight connections are a factor when selecting their next cruise experience and the new services from Stansted are a great addition to our summer 2011 programme

“Around 6.7 million people live in Stansted’s main catchment area, putting our cruise connections onto the doorstep of millions of potential customers.   Setting off on a great value cruise holiday from an iconic destination such as Venice is now easier than ever before, and the new service will deliver an efficient route for thousands of UK cruisers to begin their holiday immediately on the day of departure”

Highlights onboard Voyager of the Seas include an ice skating rink, rock climbing wall, and indoor ‘street’ running through the centre of the ship featuring shops, restaurants and bars, as well as huge amounts of space dedicated to fun for children and teens of all ages.
