Royal Caribbean International has announced a return to sailing. Set to resume from 12th June, the cruise lines ship Adventure of the Seas will run seven-night cruises from Nassau in The Bahamas and will include two days at its Perfect Day and CocoCay private islands as well as Cozumel in Mexico.
Passengers sailing aboard Adventure of the Seas will have to have been vaccinated and those under the age of 18 must have a negative test result. Guests must also meet the travel requirements of The Bahamas which may include receiving a negative PCR test result prior to arriving, testing upon arrival and filling out relevant entry forms.
Michael Bayley, Royal Caribbean International’s President and Chief Executive, said: “We are excited to get back to delivering memorable vacations in the Caribbean, gradually and safely.
“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. As we move forward, we expect this requirement and other measures will inevitably evolve over time.
“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. We are grateful for the confidence that they have in us and our commitment to a healthy and happy return to sailing.”
