Royal Caribbean has announced longer itineraries in new locations around Asia, the Middle East and New Zealand.

The longer cruisers sail up to 51 days which means guests only need to unpack once and these cruises are ideal for retired travellers.

“We know that the destination mix is important for those who have already travelled to many placed in the world, which is why Royal Caribbean has packaged these unique itineraries featuring a range of exotic and lesser known locales,” said Sean Treacy, the commercial director of Royal Caribbean Cruises Australia.

“Great for couples, solo travellers and first time cruisers, these distinct itineraries also offer plenty onboard activities for all levels of fitness and mobility.”

Guests can hop onboard ships like Explorer of the Seas, which calls at Crete, Jerusalem, the Suez Canal, Jodan, Dubai, Goa and Cochin.

Closer to home, there is also a New Zealand cruise.

Mariner of the Seas sails on a 29-night voyage from Beijing to Singapore and calls at ports in Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Thailand and Hong Kong.
