Sampler cruises

If you’ve never experienced a cruise holiday before, a Royal Caribbean sampler is the perfect introduction. With a short, two night escape, you can experience the many on-board features and amenities. Excursions are still available too, so you won’t miss out on any part of the cruise holiday experience.

Longer mini cruises of four or five nights offer the chance to take in a number of ports with more shore excursions available. They’re ideal for exploring a range of cities and giving you more time to enjoy the great on-board features that you’ll find on each Royal Caribbean ship.


The top destinations for mini cruises are Asia, the Caribbean, South America and Europe. Cruises in Asia include stops in some of the most striking and impressive cities to be found in such countries as Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, South Korea and Japan. Caribbean mini cruises generally embark from Florida, heading to many of the islands across the region but can also include stops along the Panama Canal and in the Bahamas.
