Royal Caribbean International’s 2021-2022 season will bring travellers the biggest Caribbean adventure ever – with newly amplified ships, shorter itineraries and more.
In summer 2021, two of the world’s largest cruise ships, Symphony and Allure of the Seas will sail alternating Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries visiting Perfect Day at CocoCay. Both Oasis Class ships will take vacationers on seven-night cruises, with Symphony sailing from Miami and Allure from Port Canaveral.
Following a US$165 million amplification, Allure will pump up the adventure with the addition of the Ultimate Abyss, the tallest slide at sea that touts a 10-storey plunge; The Perfect Storm, a thrilling trio of multi-storey waterslides; and an array of culinary possibilities with more restaurants, including the introduction of Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar and returning favourites Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade and El Loco Fresh.
In November 2021, Allure will depart for its winter season, making way for Harmony of the Seas’ return to Port Canaveral. Sailing from Central Florida, Harmony will offer seven-night alternating Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries, all calling on Perfect Day at CocoCay. Summer 2021 Caribbean sailings on board Symphony, Harmony and Allure are open for bookings.
After spending a summer in Southampton, England, in October 2021, Anthem of the Seas will make its way back to Cape Liberty to offer seven-night cruises to The Bahamas, along with a handful of Southern Caribbean sailings for the holidays.
Also cruising from South Florida is Vision of the Seas. The Vision Class ship will sail another winter season in Fort Lauderdale, offering 10- and 11-night Southern Caribbean itineraries. Rhapsody of the Seas will spend her winter in Tampa to embark on seven-night Western Caribbean adventures.
Travellers can also experience the Island of Enchantment when sailing from San Juan, Puerto Rico on Freedom of the Seas and Empress of the Seas. Both ships will take guests on seven-night itineraries for winter 2021-2022, which include visits to far-flung destinations like Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands, Bridgetown, Barbados and St. George’s, Grenada.
