According to a recent announcement from Royal Caribbean International, the entire fleet of ships will be sailing by spring 2020. With sailings from New York City to Australia, the next group of returning ships and itineraries will begin setting sail in September, beginning with Oasis of the Seas’ first sailing from New York City to Perfect Day at CocoCay, The Bahamas. With each ship now returning, the cruise line will continue to deliver memorable and safe cruise vacations to Alaskan and Asian guests as well as Caribbean and European cruisers. The health measures that have so far protected guests, crew, and destination communities will remain in place on each ship. You can now book all cruises for 2021 and 2022 on this site.
“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.”Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International
Royal Caribbean’s diverse fleet of ships and itineraries offer vacationers and their families a variety of lengths and destinations around the world. Other Royal Caribbean milestones announced this year include the return of the cruise line to California and the start of its first full winter season from Barbados.
In late summer, Oasis will be performing. After departing from New York on Sept. 5, the Oasis Class ship will sail to destinations in The Bahamas such as Perfect Day at CocoCay for seven nights. Navigator of the Seas is scheduled to arrive in Los Angeles on Nov. 19 and depart with West Coast vacationers on 3-, 4-, and 5-night trips to Catalina Island, California, and Mexico. Two popular destinations on opposite sides of the world will welcome Royal Caribbean’s long-awaited return in December. A domestic cruise from Sydney will be offered by Ovation of the Seas on Dec. 13; a 7- and 14-night cruise to bucket list islands will be offered by Grandeur of the Seas on Dec. 5.
