Royal Caribbean International today announced the redeployment of Navigator of the Seas for the 2011-12 winter season, offering a wider selection of Caribbean vacation options.

The ship was originally scheduled to homeport in Barcelona for the winter, sailing a 14-day eastern Mediterranean itinerary, including calls in Egypt.

The ship will now reposition to Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and sail a range of five- to nine-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries beginning November 20, 2011. Navigator of the Seas also offers a 14-night, trans-Atlantic itinerary from Rome to Port Everglades, departing November 6, 2011, and a 15-night return cruise to Rome on April 14, 2012. Sailings for Navigator of the Seas’ winter 2011-12 cruises are open for sale.

Navigator of the Seas will alternate a six-night Western Caribbean with an eight-night Eastern Caribbean itinerary. Ports of call on the six-night sailings include Grand Cayman, the newly opened Historic Falmouth Port, and Labadee, Royal Caribbean’s private beach destination on the north coast of Haiti. The eight-night sailing features calls at St. Maarten, St. Kitts, San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Labadee.

Additionally, a seven-night Eastern Caribbean itinerary, departing on January 8 and 22, 2012, subtracts a call at St. Kitts from the eight-night itinerary, while a seven-night Western Caribbean itinerary, departing January 15, adds a call to the six-night itinerary at Cozumel, Mexico. A special nine-night New Year’s cruise, departing December 30, 2011, adds a call at St. Thomas to the eight-night Eastern Caribbean itinerary.
