Cruising on Royal Caribbean International (RCI) For those of you who are not cruise aficionados, RCI is one of the more upscale cruise lines, I would compare it to a 4-5 star resort. Also great for families as their ships are entire world unto themselves.As Spring Break is different through out the country, I am seeing cruises from mid March to mid April start from $499 per person upwards.FYI, different ships have different pricing depending on the ship’s “age” and amenities.Royal Caribbeans “Radiance-class” ships, are 88,000-tons, and host 2,100-passengers. The Radiance class includes Radiance of the Seas, Brilliance of the Seas, Jewel of the Seas and Serenade of the Seas. These sleek new ships, with their mega-yacht exteriors, boast an abundance of windows, all-glass elevators facing the sea and the fleet’s highest percentage of staterooms with balconies.Royal Caribbean is offering more options than ever in the Caribbean, giving travelers the freedom to choose their perfect vacation.
