Welcome to Royal Caribbean International and the Nation of Why Not
- a place where innovation and imagination reign supreme. From its very beginning, this company has always been guided by the principles of “Why Not?” Why not design a ship specifically to cruise the Caribbean? Why not split it into two to add more features? Why not add rock walls and ice skating rinks and surf simulators?

All of those features allow our guests, or should I call them citizens, to ask “Why Not?” in turn - to go out and see, do and be more than they had ever thought possible. To feel that on a Royal Caribbean cruise vacation, they can rediscover who they really are. With more than 280 destinations worldwide and an amazing array of exciting shore excursions and cruisetour options, we’re giving our citizens the chance to try something new - why not go glacier-trekking in Alaska, cave-tubing in Belize, biking through the vineyards of Dubrovnik, Croatia; experience the wonders of China or why not do nothing at all? The choice is yours.

*Terms and Conditions: The 50% reduced deposit can also be applied via any automated booking tool (Cruisematch®, Sabre, Amadeus, Galileo or Wordspan). However, the booking confirmation will not reflect the reduced deposit amount due.

About 70 percent of Japan’s railway network is owned and operated by the Japan Railways (JR), while the remaining 30 percent belongs to dozens of other private railway companies, especially in and around metropolitan areas.

The Japan Railways Group, more commonly known as JR Group (JRグループ), is made up of six regional passenger railway companies, which are JR Hokkaido, JR East, JR Central, JR West, JR Shikoku, and JR Kyushu, and one nationwide freight railway company, JR Freight.
