The highest value debt offering announced in 2021 (where the deal value was known), is the funds to be raised by Royal Caribbean Cruises in an offering of 11.5% senior notes due in 2025.

The debt offering is set to be worth $2,320 million.

The database states that the rationale behind this deal was as follows: "Royal Caribbean Cruises intends to use the proceeds to repay its senior secured term loan agreement, to use the remainder net proceeds for general corporate purposes, which may include repayment of additional indebtedness."
