Royal Caribbean reprises three-ship Alaska lineup in 2021

Following what will be its first three-ship Alaska deployment in 2020, Royal Caribbean International is going to return Ovation, Radiance and Serenade of the Seas to the region in 2021.

The Quantum-class Ovation with its North Star viewing capsule and the Radiance-class sisters with their large expanses of glass will once again offer weeklong journeys.

Round-trip Seattle

Ovation of the Seas will sail round-trip Seattle to Juneau, Skagway and Victoria, BC, with scenic cruising of Endicott Arm and Dawes Glacier.


Radiance of the Seas will sail open-jaw itineraries between Seward and Vancouver, with calls at Icy Strait Point, Sitka and Skagway, and highlights including Hubbard Glacier and the Inside Passage.

Radiance passengers can extend their time before or after their cruise with three- to seven-night cruise-tour packages that feature Denali National Park and Preserve and opportunities to hike the Exit Glacier, kayak and bike by Eklutna Lake, and more.

Round-trip Vancouver

Round-trip Vancouver voyages aboard Serenade of the Seas will feature Tracy Arm Fjord and visit Ketchikan, Skagway, Sitka and Juneau.

Bookended by Hawaii

Before and after the Alaska season, Serenade and Radiance will visit Kailua, Hilo and Lahaina, Hawaii. Radiance’s 10-night itineraries — from Honolulu or Vancouver — will each offer a late-night call in Lahaina, while Serenade’s 11-night sailing from Honolulu features an overnight stay there.

Spa staterooms

All three ships will debut Royal Caribbean’s spa staterooms. These new balcony accommodations offer perks including priority embarkation and spa reservations, lush bedding and bath products, tranquil décor and daily delivery of tea, water and coffee.
