RCI’s Australian office was awarded a top accolade at a ceremony onboard Allure.

Royal Caribbean International has announced it’s the local Australian office that’s had the best growth for the company this year, proving that ‘yes!’ we do love cruising.

Announced at a ceremony onboard Allure of the Seas, where inaugural celebrations are taking place in Florida, the awards recognise best volume and revenue growth over the past year for both Royal Caribbean and Azamara branded cruise lines.

Speaking from the awards ceremony on behalf of his Sydney-based office, Royal Caribbean Cruises Australia’s commercial manager, Adam Armstrong said, “more Australian passengers [are] travelling on both our local and overseas cruises than ever before.”

Armstrong also said they had experienced 50 per cent more bookings for Oasis of the Seas than they had originally expected and bookings for Allure were already strong.

Next year, three Royal Caribbean International cruise ships will be based in the country – RCI’s Radiance of the Seas and Rhapsody of the Seas, Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Century.
