Voyager of the Seas photoRoyal Caribbean International is an American cruise line that serves the mass market with affordable cruises on large ships that carry 2,076 to 5,400 passengers.

The last time we checked, the company listed 22 vessels in its fleet or under construction. Its newer ships emphasize a resort experience, with over-the-top features that include bumper cars, water parks, and a thrill ride that lifts passengers 300 feet above the water.

photoAlthough most Royal Caribbean guests are English-speaking tourists from the United States and Canada, the line also has Spanish-language information on its U.S. Web site and markets to customers outside of North America.

In 2017, Royal Caribbean is sending 10 ships to Northern Europe and the Mediterranean from spring through fall. (Among the cruise line's more attractive offerings will be a series of roundtrip itineraries from Venice.)
