Well, that was fast. A few days ago Crystal Cruises announced they will sail from The Bahamas to bypass the CDC and U.S. ports. Earlier today, Celebrity Cruises announced they will sail from the homeport of St. Maarten. And not to be left out, Royal Caribbean just announced that they will also sail a ship this summer from The Bahamas.
Royal Caribbean’s Adventure of the Seas will be sailing 7-night voyages from Nassau beginning June 12. Itineraries go on sale March 24, 2021. The new itineraries will continue through August.
Ports of call include Perfect Day at CocoCay (back-to-back stops at the private island), Cozumel and Grand Bahama.
All guests over the age of 18 must be fully vaccinated from Covid. Children 17 and under must show a negative PCR test prior to sailing. All visitors to The Bahamas must also show a negative Covid test prior to arrival. As of right now, all travelers must also have a negative Covid test before returning to the United States.
Royal Caribbean has not stipulated the mask policy on board yet. The company plans to announce further health and safety details at a later date. You can read the full press release here.
I personally think these cruises from Royal Caribbean will sell out quickly. Many cruise aficionados are vaccinated and ready to hit the seas.
What cruise line will be next to announce a new non-US homeport for this summer? Carnival? Norwegian? Both?
