At Royal Caribbean International, our guests and crew's safety and well-being are always our top priorities. After further consulting with our partners at Cruise Lines International Association and in conjunction with the CDC, we have decided to extend the suspension of sailings for our global fleet for all sailings through November 30, 2020. Our goal is to resume operations on December 1st, 2020. However, the following circumstances have extended the suspension for the following ships and sailings:
- Australia sailings through December 31st, 2020.
- Odyssey of the Seas sailings from November 5th, 2020 through April 17th, 2021 will be cancelled. Given the closure of shipyards along with the disruption to the supply chain caused by this pandemic, we’ll need additional time to complete the Odyssey of the Seas’ scheduled construction.
- Liberty of the Seas’ amplification has been postponed to a later date, and the ship will now sail to Galveston earlier than planned. Regrettably, only one ship can dock at the Galveston pier at a time, so we have to cancel our February 14th, 2021 Jewel of the Seas cruise.
- In preparation for our return to service, we’ve been making changes to our existing itineraries to ensure we meet the evolving needs of our guests and are aligned with any existing travel restrictions. Unfortunately, the following Quantum of the Seas sailings have now been cancelled as part of this change, while we assess our next move for this ship:
- Quantum of the Seas sailings departing December 2nd, 2020 – March 22nd, 2021
Royal Caribbean International is closely monitoring developments regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and we are being proactive when it comes to safeguarding the health and well-being of our guests, crew, and the communities where we sail.
