Cruise Lines to Set Sail Again This Summer

by Kristy Tolley

If you’ve been dreaming of a sun-soaked cruise vacation this past year, now’s your chance to make it come true!

Royal Caribbean International and Celebrity Cruises will hit the seas again in June with Caribbean itineraries that include The Bahamas, Mexico, St. Maarten, Bermuda, Barbados, St. Lucia, Aruba and Curacao.

Royal Caribbean’s summer lineup of 7-night cruises on board Adventure of the Seas set sail this June from Nassau, The Bahamas. Beginning June 12, you can enjoy the tropical adventures you’ve been craving, including a first series of two back-to-back days on Perfect Day at CocoCay, Royal Caribbean’s private island.

On Perfect Day at CocoCay, you can hit North America’s tallest waterslide among Thrill Waterpark’s 13 exhilarating waterslides; relax in the first floating cabanas in The Bahamas at Coco Beach Club, or swim in the largest freshwater pool in the Caribbean, Oasis Lagoon. Vacationers can also explore Grand Bahama Island, The Bahamas and Cozumel, Mexico. Travelers can book their Royal Caribbean cruise as soon as March 24.

Details on additional health and safety measures to be implemented by Royal Caribbean will be announced at a later date, but will leverage expert guidance from the Healthy Sail Panel, Royal Caribbean Group’s Head of Public Health and Chief Medical Officer, and local government and health authorities. The new itineraries departing through August, which will sail with vaccinated crew, will be available to adult guests who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and those under the age of 18 with negative test results.

Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Millennium will sail new 7-night itineraries departing from the homeport of idyllic St. Maarten beginning June 5. Millennium is at the forefront of the fleet’s $500 million modernization program and features the exclusive open-air hideaway The Retreat®. Travelers can book their long-awaited cruise beginning March 25.

Caribbean itineraries provide a week of world-class dining experiences, thrilling shows and dreamy, stylish staterooms all while basking in the sun, culture and history of some of the most beautiful islands on the planet. Two different itinerary offerings include: Aruba, Curaçao and Barbados. In addition to the many adventures in Barbados, this itinerary adds in St. Lucia’s lush green landscape and relaxing Sugar Beach; along with one of the British Virgin Islands’ treasures, Tortola, with its mountainous landscape and beautiful sandy coves that are enough to make any beach lover swoon.

The ship will sail with vaccinated crew and will be available to vaccinated adult guests and children under the age of 18 with a negative PCR test result within 72 hours of embarkation.
