Top cruise line Royal Caribbean Cruises
has revealed that eight of its ships will set sail around Europe next year.
Martin Walter, head of field sales at the line, said he was confident of being able to offer new destinations, great itineraries and fun onboard experiences in 2010.
He commented: "Independence of the Seas has changed the perception of cruising in the UK and Ireland leading both agents and consumers alike to re-appraise how to get a great value holiday in Europe and the Mediterranean."
Next year's cruises include Vision of the Seas which will sail four-night journeys from Oslo to Hamburg and Jewel of the Seas will sail between Scandinavia and Russia for 12-night cruises.
Recently, the cruise line revealed that bookings have increased by 40 per cent for 2009.
