Royal Caribbean Cruises has appointed its first ever female captain.

Swedish mariner Karin Stahre-Janson has gained responsibility for Monarch of the Seas, which operates charming four-night cruises to from Los Angeles to San Diego, Catalina and Ensenada.

Highlights of the ship include a make-your-own pizzeria and first-rate spa facilities.

Adam Goldstein, President of Royal Caribbean Cruises, comments: "This is historic news - for our company and the entire cruise industry - and a tremendous inspiration for women in any line of work, particularly a maritime career."

Royal Caribbean Cruises has a reputation for innovation, bolstered by its forward-thinking attitude to the holiday experience.

The company - never one to shy away from a headline - recently announced its largest ever deployment in Europe, taking seven ships to the continent in 2008.

Commenting on her appointment, Captain Stahre-Janson said: "I hope my achievements can serve as an example to young women around the world and inspire them to work toward their dreams."

As scores of holidaymakers already know, there is no better way to work towards your dreams than on a Royal Caribbean Cruise.

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
