ROYAL CARIBBEAN ANNOUNCES 1994 SCHEDULES; ADDS SECOND SHIP, NEW ITINERARIES AND NEW PORTS IN ALASKA

 MIAMI, June 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Caribbean Cruise Line today announced it will substantially increase its 1994 commitment to the Alaska cruise market by adding a second ship and, for the first time, will offer extended 10- and 11-night Alaska cruises. Royal Caribbean will also make minor changes to some of its current worldwide itineraries.
 Bect?he success of the 1,012-passenger Nordic Prince's weekly Alaska cruises from Vancouver this summer, Royal Caribbean will place a second ship, the 714-passenger Sun Viking, in Alaska for the summer of 1994. Nordic Prince will continue its highly popular weekly departures while Sun Viking will explore more of Alaska with extended 10- and 11- night cruise vacations sailing round trip from Vancouver. For the first time, a Royal Caribbean ship will visit Sitka, Wrangell and cruise past Hubbard Glacier. The new itinerary also marks the first time Royal Caribbean has offered Alaska cruises longer than 7 nights.
 "Alaska continues to grow in popularity," said Rod McLeod, Royal Caribbean's executive vice president of sales, marketing and passenger services. "A second ship offering longer cruises is a logical response to increased demand for Royal Caribbean cruise vacations in Alaska."
 Since it will be moving two ships to and from Alaska, Royal Caribbean will offer four Pacific Coastal voyages in 1994, twice as many as in 1993. Also, Sun Viking will sail two, extended two-week Panama Canal transits as the ship moves between the Caribbean and Alaska.
 Other changes for 1994 include the flip-flopping of two ships on Caribbean itineraries. The 1,402-passenger Song of America will be based in San Juan beginning in the fall of 1994 for a winter series of seven-night cruises to the Southern Caribbean, taking over the route currently operated by the 714-passenger Sun Viking and nearly doubling Royal Caribbean's capacity on that itinerary. In turn, Sun Viking will take over Song of America's 1993-1994 winter schedule of 10- and 11- night cruises between San Juan and Miami in the fall of 1994.
 In Europe, Royal Caribbean's Song of Norway will offer 12-night British Isles and Norwegian Fjords cruises in addition to its highly popular 12-night Scandinavia/Russia cruises from Harwich, England and 12-night Mediterranean sailings between Barcelona and Venice.
 The majority of Royal Caribbean's 1993 cruise schedule will remain essentially unchanged for 1994.
 Royal Caribbean Cruise Line is the world's largest cruise brand by passenger capacity, operates nine modern ships and has signed contracts to build up to three 1,750-passenger ships for delivery in 1995, 1996 and 1997.
