ROYAL CARIBBEAN REPORTS 2014 RESULTS AND
PROVIDES 2015 GUIDANCE

MIAMI January 29, 2015 – Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. (NYSE, OSE: RCL) today reported 2014 results and provided increased guidance for 2015. Following its
Double-Double trajectory, the company’s earnings for 2014 were up more than 40% over 2013 and are expected to be up a further 40% in 2015.
 
KEY HIGHLIGHTS
 
Full Year 2014:
 
>  
Net Yields were up 2.4% on a Constant-Currency basis (up 1.4% As-Reported).
>  
Net Cruise Costs (“NCC”) excluding fuel were down 0.6% on a Constant-Currency basis (down 0.8% As-Reported).
>  
Adjusted Net Income was $755.7 million, or $3.39 per share, versus Adjusted Net Income of $539.2 million, or $2.44 per share, in 2013.
>  
In the fourth quarter, the US Dollar strengthened significantly and the price of crude oil fell dramatically in world markets, but the price at-the-pump fell more slowly.  The net effect of both factors on the company was a reduction in EPS of $0.07 per share since October.
>  
Operationally, results were on target, but close-in bookings were at the low end of the scale whereas 2013’s very robust pattern was unusually strong. These weaker bookings were offset by improved expenses and equity investments.

US GAAP Net Income was $764.1 million or $3.43 per share, versus $473.7 million, or $2.14 per share in 2013.
 
Full Year 2015 Outlook:
