Royal Caribbean will be launching cruises this summer out of a new homeport: Bermuda.
Continuing a trend of cruise lines launching from new homeports with the CDC still banning U.S.-based cruises, the cruise giant will run a series of seven-night cruises out of Bermuda beginning in June.
The itineraries will include stops at Royal Caribbean’s Perfect Day at CocoCay private-island destination in The Bahamas.
Royal will be operating the first cruises on its Vision of the Seas ship.
“We are thankful to the government and people of Bermuda for welcoming us to their beautiful island nation with open arms as Vision of the Seas’ new homeport. This is another step in our safe and measured return to sailing beginning in June,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “Travelers are eager to venture out gradually and start cruising again. By adding a second unique option to sail the Caribbean from a destination as rich and vibrant as Bermuda, we’re offering guests choice in how they can enjoy their well-deserved vacations this summer.”
The cruises will available to adult guests who are fully vaccinated, along with those under the age of 18 with negative test results.
“Bermuda has safely and responsibly managed the reopening of its tourism economy by air, and we will meet the challenge of doing the same for the cruise industry. We look forward to homeporting Royal Caribbean’s Vision of the Seas this June as part of the island’s strategic tourism recovery planning which, as always, is guided by science,” said Bermuda Premier David Burt.
