A cruise ship or cruise liner is a passenger ship used for pleasure voyages, where the voyage itself and the ship's amenities are a part of the experience, as well as the different destinations along the way, i.e., ports of call. Transportation is not the only purpose of cruising, particularly on cruises that return passengers to their originating port (also known as a closed-loop cruise), with the ports of call usually in a specified region of a continent. There are even "cruises to nowhere" or "nowhere voyages" where the ship makes 2–3 night round trips without any ports of call.
Royal Caribbean International has been setting industry standards since its creation over a quarter century ago. While their itineraries have journeyed way past the islands of the Caribbean to ports of call all over the world, the company's philosophy remains consistent: Offer every imaginable activity, to every conceivable destination on majestic vessels. They think of everything, from romantic moonlight dances to on board ice-skating, from outrageous comedy to on board rock climbing. We are confident that once you embark on an adventure with them you'll understand why a Royal Caribbean cruise is "Like No Vacation On Earth".
