Royal Caribbean Cruises today announced that it has commenced a private offering of senior secured notes to be issued by the company in separate series of notes due 2023 and 2025, for an aggregate principal amount of $3.3 billion.

The Notes and the related guarantees will be secured by 28 of the company's vessels and material intellectual property of the company.
