Vickie Freed, SVP of Sales and Trade Support & Services at Royal Caribbean International, recently posted this announcement on her Facebook page:
We’re thrilled to announce that cruising is BACK!
Beginning in June 2021, departures will resume as we introduce Adventure of the Seas to her new homeport of Nassau, Bahamas. Offering weeklong getaways, vacationers can enjoy a day in Cozumel, Mexico, as well as an island-hopping sampler of popular Bahamian ports – including Grand Bahama Island and two consecutive days at our very own private destination, Perfect Day at CocoCay. Island time is now!
Little by little, opportunities are surfacing, allowing the travel industry to take steps in the right direction. We hope you are as excited as I am for today’s incredible announcement! Together, we’ll be back stronger than ever. Who’s excited!?
This is big news, indeed! And just days after Celebrity Cruises (sister company to RCI) announces the Celebrity Millennium would return to service on June 5th.
According to Celebrity, the ship will carry vaccinated crew and be available to vaccinated adults and to children under 18, all with a negative PCR test result within 72 hours of embarkation. The PCR test is also a St. Maarten requirement. Thousands of its crew have already been vaccinated in their home countries and the number will grow as the return to service nears.
If you are ready to book a cruise on either Celebrity or Royal Caribbean give me a call!
