Royal Caribbean International has announced plans to boldly go where no cruise company has gone before by offering the world’s first cruise experience to space; with the first voyage of its state-of-the-art spaceship, Orbiter of the Galaxies today confirmed for 2030.

Construction of the space and cruise ship hybrid is underway and the line has unveiled the first images of this cosmic experience to the public.

Cosmic features budding astronauts can expect onboard include 270° panoramic space views through two 70°’s multi-deck, floor-to-ceiling glass walls and a gravity defying iFly® space walking simulator experience allowing guests to soar through space for the ultimate thrill seeker experience.

In addition, the company will be adapting its stage shows for Zero G and microgravity conditions, and creating food and drink menus designed to suit space climates.

Stuart Leven, UK & Ireland MD for the cruise line, said: “We are always looking for new ways to deliver the extraordinary and what could be more spectacular than cruising through space - just imagine the holiday pictures! Orbiter of the Galaxies will be the jewel in our ground breaking fleet and we can’t wait for take-off.”

Details of launch location and itineraries will be confirmed in due course.
