Royal Caribbean is adding another ship to Southampton next year as the 3,114-passenger Adventure of the Seas will be joining Independence of the Seas. This is a move that more less doubles the capacity of Royal Caribbean passengers sailing out of Southampton for the 2013 summer season.

When Adventure of the Seas arrives in Southampton on May 24, 2013, the ship will offer a series of seven-, 12-, 13-, 14- and 16-night cruises. Itinerary highlights from the new Adventure of the Seas U.K.-based summer 2013 season include:

  • A seven-night France and Spain cruise departing Southampton on May 24, 2013 and calling at Vigo, Gijon and Bilbao in Spain, and Le Havre for Paris in France.
  • A 12-night Baltic cruise, featuring destinations such as Oslo, Copenhagen, Tallinn, Helsinki and an overnight stay in St. Petersburg, departing on a May 31.
  • A 14-night Mediterranean Cities cruise departing on July 7 and October 13, with ports of call in Malaga, Cannes, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Valencia, Cartegena, Lisbon and Vigo.

Adventure of the Seas features an in-line skating track, an ice-skating rink, a rock-climbing wall, a boulevard of restaurants, boutiques and lounges, running through the center of the ship, extensive family facilities, and a host of restaurants from fine Italian dining to casual burger bars.

For a fifth season, Independence of the Seas will arrive early May after completing a scheduled dry dock.
