Royal Caribbean International announced that it will be sailing its full fleet once again by the spring of 2022 and detailed the lineup of ships returning to service.
The next group of returning ships will be led by Oasis of the Seas, which will begin sailing seven-night itineraries from New York to the cruise line's private island, Perfect Day at CocoCay, in the Bahamas, starting on September 5, 2021.
Each ship returning now will sail with the same health and safety measures that have allowed Royal Caribbean ships to operate successfully in Alaska, Asia, The Bahamas, the Caribbean and Europe.
"We are excited and appreciative to be able to say with confidence when all of our ships will return, especially for travelers looking ahead to plan their getaways. More than 110,000 guests have cruised with us since December, and they've done so safely while enjoying the memorable vacations they trust we'll bring to life," said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. "It's been incredible to see families come together again onboard our ships sailing in the U.S., the Caribbean, Europe and Asia. And to know we'll soon welcome more in a safe manner when our entire fleet is back by spring 2022 is wonderful."
On November 19, 2021, Navigator of the Seas will arrive in Los Angeles. Ovation of the Seas will head back to Australia on December 13, 2021, to sail domestic cruises from Sydney, and Grandeur of the Seas will cruise from Bridgetown, Barbados on seven- and 14-night sailings starting as soon as December 5, 2021.
