Royal Caribbean is preparing for a season of cruising in Australia, as itineraries for 2024-25 are released. Quantum of the Seas and Ovation of the Seas will be based in the region, sailing to destinations across New Zealand, Australia and the South Pacific.

Quantum of the Seas will cruise from Brisbane, visiting locations such as Mystery Island and Port Vila in Vanuatu, as well as Noumea in New Caledonia.

Meanwhile, Ovation of the Seas will cruise from Sydney on a series of 10 and 11-night sailings. Ports of call include Milford Sound, Bay of Islands, Tauranga, Napier and Wellington in New Zealand.

Guests in search of short breaks can embark on one of eight two-to-three-night weekend getaways from both Sydney and Brisbane.

Gavin Smith, Royal Caribbean’s Vice-President and Managing Director in Australia and New Zealand, commented: “After a triumphant return this season, we are thrilled to welcome back the two ships Australian holidaymakers have been raving about.

“Guests can’t get enough of the range of unique and unforgettable experiences only found on Royal Caribbean, and summer 2024-2025 will see even more of it. Matching the adventures at every destination are those on board, including surfing on the FlowRider, dining family style at Jamie’s Italian and the whole family battling it out on the bumper cars in SeaPlex, the largest indoor activity space at sea.”
