The cruise line industry may finally start to welcome guests back aboard their ships in the coming months.
Ever since the CDC issued their Conditional Sailing Order, cruise companies have begun to prepare for the return of their industry, even with the limitations in place. Now, it looks like one cruise company is ready to welcome back travelers in less than a few months.
Royal Caribbean has announced that travelers can embark on cruises to The Bahamas and Mexico as early as this June. A lineup of seven-night excursions aboard Adventure of the Seas will be included in their initial cruise offerings. All itineraries will depart from the ship’s homeport of Nassau, The Bahamas.
Cruisers can begin to book their itineraries as early as March 24th for sailings beginning on June 12th. These itineraries will be available to adult guests who are fully vaccinated as well as guests under the age of 18 with negative test results prior to boarding. Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International, stated that “we believe starting with cruises for vaccinated adult guests and crew is the right choice. As we move forward, we expect this requirement and other measures will inevitably evolve over time.”
These returning sailings include Celebrity Cruises, which is a subsidiary of the Royal Caribbean Group. Keep an eye out on Royal Caribbean’s website if you are planning on booking an upcoming cruise itinerary! We will continue to update you on additional cruise lines, including Disney, as they prepare to welcome travelers back onboard this year.
