March 25, 2021 Cruise News No Comments Email Email

While Australia is still lagging behind in getting cruising going, even in Australia and Aussies cannot travel overseas, Royal Caribbean International is launching their  long-awaited cruises in The Bahamas and Mexico, with a summer line up of 7-night cruises on board Adventure of the Seas,  this June from a new homeport Nassau, The Bahamas.

The cruises feature island-hopping and relish missed adventures they have missed, including the first series of two back-to-back days on Perfect Day at CocoCay, Royal Caribbean’s game-changing private island destination in The Bahamas, and quality time exploring Grand Bahama Island, The Bahamas and Cozumel, Mexico.

The roundtrip cruises can be booked for adult guests who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and those under the age of 18 with negative test results as soon as Wednesday, March 24 and set sail starting June 12, with the new itineraries sailing through August, with all crew vaccinated also.

Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International, “We are excited to get back to delivering memorable vacations in the Caribbean, gradually and safely”, adding, “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”, and “As we move forward, we expect this requirement and other measures will inevitably evolve over time,” adding, “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 and we are grateful for the confidence that they have in us and our commitment to a healthy and happy return to sailing.”

The Most Hon. Dr. Hubert A. Minnis, Prime Minister of The Bahamas said, “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”, adding, “Hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of passengers will experience Nassau or Grand Bahama in ways they never had the opportunity to before,” and “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.

He added, his is truly a new day for tourism”, and 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.”

Minister of Tourism & Aviation, the Honorable Dionisio D’Aguilar said, “Royal Caribbean has long been a valued partner to The Bahamas, and we are thrilled to work with them on making Nassau their newest homeport,” adding, “Cruising is a vital part of The Bahamas’ economy and having Royal Caribbean and their guests return to our shores will contribute greatly to restoring and reactivating tourism” and “We have been preparing diligently for the last many months to ensure an experience that is equally safe and enjoyable”, adding, “We are confident that cruise goers will receive the warm, friendly hospitality The Bahamas is famous for and we cannot wait to remind guests that it is still Better in The Bahamas.”
