Our Vision

We dream at Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.

We look beyond the now, sensing and feeling and intuiting what could be. As a company and as individuals, we feel compelled to ask this question:

What if?

What if we could build an ice rink on a cruise ship?

What if we could blow glass at sea?

What if we could take people to places they never thought they’d see?

What if?

More than 40 years ago, we set out to create ships that astound and experiences that amaze. The road from dream to reality has been filled with hypothesis and experiment, reconsideration and revision, satisfaction and success.

Our History

  1. 2016

    Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. and World Wildlife Fund (WWF) announce global partnership to support ocean conservation.

  2. 2016

    Royal Caribbean International launches world’s largest cruise ship Harmony of the Seas, featuring The Ultimate Abyss. Beginning on Deck 16 and ending on Deck 6, it’s a nine-deck drop (in a nod to the superstitious, there is no Deck 13 on Harmony). That makes it by far the tallest slide at sea. Filled with LED lights and graffiti artwork designed to create a starry night and twister effect, and spinning around on itself several times, it’s a first-of-its-kind for Royal Caribbean and the cruise industry.
