Royal Caribbean returns to the Caribbean from June

This summer, Royal Caribbean International have announced a summer line up setting sail this June, from new homeport Nassau, Bahamas.

With bookings to open from Wednesday 24th March 2021, travellers can look forward to their summer vacations.

The new itineraries departing through August, will sail with a vaccinated crew and will be available to adult guests who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and those under the age of 18 with negative test results. Holidaymakers must also meet the travel requirements of The Bahamas.

“We are excited to get back to delivering memorable vacations in the Caribbean, gradually and safely. The vaccines are clearly a game changer for all of us, and with the number of vaccinations and their impact growing rapidly, 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,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International.

“The opportunity to homeport in The Bahamas is a testament to the tremendous partners the government and the people of the island nation have been to us for more than 50 years. We are grateful for the confidence that they have in us and our commitment to a healthy and happy return to sailing.” 

“As we anticipate a promising return to a vibrant tourism industry, news that the cruise industry is going to begin homeporting in The Bahamas is exciting. Hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of passengers will experience Nassau or Grand Bahama in ways they never had the opportunity to before,” said the Most Hon. Dr. Hubert A. Minnis, Prime Minister of The Bahamas.

“I am especially pleased that Royal Caribbean, with whom we have had a long and mutually beneficial relationship for more than 50 years, selected The Bahamas as a homeport when sailing resumes. This is truly a new day for tourism. It should inspire many small- to medium-sized businesses, tour operators, taxi drivers, restaurants and retailers to prepare for brighter days ahead, the best we have ever had.”

 Itinerary Highlights include: The sun-soaked shores of Perfect Day at CocoCay, Grand Bahama Island and Cozumel beckon.
