Royal Caribbean announces restart plans for remaining cruise ships

Royal Caribbean has laid out its plans for the rest of the fleet on when and where ships will resume sailing again.

While Royal Caribbean has restarted successfully a number of ships this summer, many sailings were in question without a firm restart date.

The cruise line shared restart plans for its cruise ships which were still in limbo as Royal Caribbean slowly restarts sailings.

The new restart plan encompasses 13 cruise ships, extending into Spring 2022.

Each ship now returning will cruise with the health measures that have safeguarded the well-being of guests, crew and destination communities to date across other ships in Alaska, Asia, The Bahamas, the Caribbean and Europe.

Here is what Royal Caribbean has announced for its restart:

Oasis of the Seas  7-night Bahamas cruises from Cape Liberty, New Jersey, starting Sept. 5; and 7-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries from Miami, beginning November

Liberty of the Seas 7-night Western Caribbean cruises from Galveston, Texas, starting Oct. 3

Serenade of the Seas  4- and 5-night Western Caribbean cruises from Tampa, Florida, starting Oct. 16; and 7-night Caribbean itineraries, beginning December

Explorer of the Seas 7-night Southern Caribbean sailings from San Juan, Puerto Rico, starting Nov. 7

Navigator of the Seas 3-, 4- and 5-night Catalina Island, California, and Ensenada and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico cruises from Los Angeles, beginning Nov. 19

Rhapsody of the Seas 7-night Mediterranean and Greek Isles itineraries, sailing from Rome starting May 23, 2022

All other ships have either restarted cruises, or have plans to restart cruises this summer.

Royal Caribbean International President and CEO Michael Bayley celebrated plans to restart all the ships, “We are excited and appreciative to be able to say with confidence when all of our ships will return, especially for travelers looking ahead to plan their getaways. More than 110,000 guests have cruised with us since December, and they’ve done so safely while enjoying the memorable vacations they trust we’ll bring to life.”

“It’s been incredible to see families come together again on board our ships sailing in the U.S., the Caribbean, Europe and Asia. And to know we’ll soon welcome more in a safe manner when our entire fleet is back by spring 2022 is wonderful.”
