Royal Caribbean International is planning more Caribbean escapes for the 2020-2021 season.
The cruise line is introducing a combination of diverse offerings throughout Caribbean, from new ship pairings in major homeports across Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico to a more diverse range of itineraries.
Royal Caribbean’s Adventure of the Seas will homeport in Texas for the first time in 2020, becoming the largest ship sailing short getaways from Galveston.
The ship will be sailing four- and five-night cruises while visiting Costa Maya and Cozumel, Mexico.
The ship joins Liberty of the Seas, which will be sailing seven-night Caribbean cruises year-round from Galveston.
Enchantment of the Seas will sail south for the winter to homeport in San Juan, Puerto Rico for the first time.
Enchantment will be sailing seven-night cruises to the Eastern and Southern Caribbean, from the beaches of Barbados to the lush mountains of Dominica.
Following a multi-million dollar transformation and summer season in Europe, Explorer of the Seas will return to Miami, sailing cruises to Curacao and Aruba, as well as Royal Caribbean’s private destination in Labadee, Haiti, on five- and nine-night cruises.
Select five-night sailings will visit Royal Caribbean’s new private island, Perfect Day at CocoCay in the Bahamas.
Independence of the Seas will return to Fort Lauderdale in November 2020, sailing four- and five-night getaways to the Western Caribbean and Nassau, The Bahamas.
The ship will also offer select sailings to Perfect Day at CocoCay.
