Few cruise lines have put quite as much effort into bringing holidaymakers new and amazing cruise experiences as Royal Caribbean - and this exciting line has just announced their line-up for the 2020/21 season. With seven ships fresh from Royal Caribbean’s ‘Royal Amplified’ modern transformation program and more opportunities than ever before to visit their private island resort Perfect Day at CocoCay, this is going to be a truly incredible season.
New England and Caribbean
Oasis of the Seas, familiar to many Down Under cruise fans from her time homeported in Sydney, will be will be departing from New England on itineraries south to the Bahamas and north to Canada - not only that, she’ll be fresh from her Royal Amplified transformation in 2019, so guests will get to enjoy an all new version of this much loved vessel.
Adventure of the Seas will spend the summer and autumn calling in to New England, Canada, Bermuda, The Bahamas and the Caribbean. Vision of the Seas will be offering slightly longer sailings between Bayonne and Quebec City, with the chance for guests to stay overnight in North America’s only fortified city.
Royal Caribbean’s top family vessels, Symphony of the Seas and Harmony of the Seas, will be sailing out of Florida on a range of Caribbean itineraries - including visits to Perfect Day at CocoCay. Meanwhile, Grandeur of the Seas is set to embark on a broad range of itineraries out of Baltimore and Brilliance of the Seas will sail north from Boston to Canada in the fall of 2020.
Rounding out the line’s lengthier Caribbean offerings are Freedom of the Seas homeporting in Puerto Rico and Liberty of the Seas sailing out of Galveston. Both of these vessels will be island hopping around the Caribbean, stopping in at exotic locales like St. Maarten, St. Kitts & Nevis and Barbados.
Short itineraries around the Caribbean
For those that don’t have a lot of time to spare but still need a refreshing escape, there’s the three/four night Caribbean itineraries aboard Mariner of the Seas and Navigator of the Seas. Both Mariner and Navigator will have enjoyed the full Royal Amplified treatment before the 2020/21 season. Enchantment of Seas will also be offering short sailings to Perfect Day at CocoCay out of Galveston.
As perfect as the Caribbean can be for cruising, it’s not the only place that Royal Caribbean guests will be visiting in 2020/21. Anthem of the Seas will embark on a transatlantic crossing before touring around coastal towns in the sunny Mediterranean, cosmopolitan Northern Europe and the stunning Canary Islands. Independence of the Seas will be based in Southampton, with sailings that call in to amazing locations as diverse as the Norwegian Fjords, North Africa, Russia and the Azores.
Explorer of the Seas and Allure of the Seas will be touring the Greek Isles and the wider Mediterranean in 2020, both fresh from their Royal Amplified modernisations, while Vision of the Seas will join the Allure in Barcelona to offer 12 night sailings around the Med. Rounding out Royal Caribbean’s European offerings, Rhapsody of the Seas will have Greek and Croatian itineraries out of Venice, Jewel of the Seas will station itself in the north to explore Scandinavia and Russia, and Brilliance of the Seas will be setting out on an amazing journey across the Atlantic via the Arctic Circle.
