Nation of Why Now
Nation of Why Not
Three Norwegian shipping companies joined to create the nation.
The Nation of Why Not is a place where innovation and imagination reign supreme. While other cruise lines have always asked “why?”, Royal Caribbean’s philosophy of “Why Not” has guided us since our founding in 1968. It’s why we were the first to build ships solely for the purpose of cruising the Caribbean, and the first to feature cantilevered whirlpools, rock-climbing walls, and ice skating rinks onboard, making our ships a destination in themselves. And now it’s why we’ve decided to start our own Nation, the Nation of Why Not, a place like no other place on earth.

National ImageWhile Royal Caribbean now officially considers itself a Nation, just remember that we’re still Royal Caribbean, and wouldn’t be where we are today without you, our Professional Travel Agents, who’ve helped build the Nation over the years. So other than a few flags, a new advertising campaign, and an even greater sense of pride, not much will change at Royal Caribbean, other than the usual stream of amazing innovations that continue to make us the most incredible cruise line on earth.
