Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Update

Royal Caribbean will no longer allow Samsung Galaxy Note 7 cell phones onboard our ships. This decision was made in light of recent incidents and safety concerns raised by Samsung about this particular device, as well as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recent ban of the phone from all airplanes. We ask that guests who own a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 not bring the device on your cruise. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation, and looking forward to welcoming you aboard.

Voyage to one of the world's great wonders

The warm, tranquil waters of the Red Sea are perfect for the growth of corals, and the masses of brilliantly colored fish that live amongst them, making Aqaba a prime attraction for snorkelers and divers. Inland is a vast desert of stark beauty that entranced Lawrence of Arabia when he headquartered in its empty canyons during WWI.

Even more awe-inspiring is the ancient city of Petra, carved into dusty pink rock by the Nabateans more than 2,000 years ago. Entering through a long narrow stone passage, you’ll come suddenly upon the massive façade of the Treasury and stop dead in your tracks, mouth agape. “Wow” doesn’t begin to cover it.
