It’s official, Royal Caribbean’s megaliner Serenade of the Seas will sail from Sydney’s Overseas Passenger Terminal for the very first time from October 2020 to April 2021.

The 2400-guest ship has 18 dining venues, bars and lounges as well as a rock-climbing wall, a nine-hole mini golf course and three pools.

The news comes off the back of yesterday’s announcement that Radiance of the Seas will homeport in Brisbane during the 2020/21 season.

This means Australian travellers will be able to choose from four Royal Caribbean megaliners and two home ports from 2020.

Aussie favourite Voyager of the Seas returns to Sydney in October 2020. With capacity for 4000 guests, the megaliner is widely considered the ship which started the revolution for larger, newer and more feature-packed ships being deployed down under.

Last but by no means least, Australia’s largest and most technologically advanced cruise ship, Ovation of the Seas, returns for her fifth season down under.

Each cruise can cater to up to 4,900 guests, who will continue to enjoy incredible thrills such as the iFly skydiving experience, North Star viewing capsule and bumper cars.

“Our company ethos has always been to bring Australians our world-class style of cruise holidays – direct to their doorstep,” said Susan Bonner, Royal Caribbean International managing director, Australia & New Zealand.

“We’re thrilled to be bringing a brand-new ship to Sydney, and returning to Queensland with our newer and larger megaliner, both packed to the rafters with features for families and couples alike.”

Together, the four Royal Caribbean megaliners will offer more capacity and itineraries than ever before, with more than 80 sailings for Australian travellers to choose from, ranging from 2 to 19 nights to destinations in the South Pacific, New Zealand and Australia.
