Royal Caribbean cruise tours combine an Alaska, Australia/New Zealand, Europe or South America cruise with a thrilling land tour adventure. On a cruise tour, you're able to see exciting ports of call along the coast, and magnificent cities and sights located inland. All of Royal Caribbean's cruise tours are 100% escorted by expert tour guides and have been designed to maximize your time spent sightseeing on many of the inclusive tours, as well as give you the opportunity to explore on your own.
The land portion of the cruise tour includes accommodations in some of the best hotels and lodges in Alaska, and 4 and 5 star hotel properties in Australia/New Zealand, Europe and South America; as well as many inclusive activities such as city tours, a visit to Denali National Park in Alaska, or a Quicksilver catamaran tour to the Great Barrier in Australia.

Alaska cruise tours depart in May through August.
With an exciting Australia/New Zealand cruise tour package, you'll travel even farther into the Australian outback, to remarkable places like the Great Barrier Reef, Ayers Rock or the crocodile haven of Cairns.
