(PRESS RELEASE)_MIAMI, March 3, 2021 – Royal Caribbean International is bringing the heat to its 2022-2023 winter deployment with weeklong Caribbean itineraries that will inspire guests to adventure again. The cruise line will set a bold tone for the season, breaking its own Texas-sized record with one of the world’s largest ships homeporting in Galveston for the first time ever, starting in November 2022. The adventure-filled Allure of the Seas will spend the season sailing 7-night Western Caribbean itineraries from Royal Caribbean’s new state-of-the-art cruise terminal, which will begin construction in April and is set to open in fall 2022. The renowned Oasis Class ship will captivate vacationers from the Lonestar State and neighboring drive markets with her award-winning, unique seven-neighborhood concept that features an array of world-class dining, adrenaline-inducing activities and groundbreaking entertainment in the iconic open-air AquaTheater entertainment venue. The excitement doesn’t stop there with five other innovative ships sailing from Florida, including Allure’s three sister ships: Oasis, Harmony and Symphony of the Seas.
No matter the departure port, travelers can expect enriching itineraries that combine cruise vacation classics like Nassau, The Bahamas; Cozumel, Mexico and Falmouth, Jamaica with far-flung favorites like Basseterre, St. Kitts & Nevis; Philipsburg, St. Maarten; and Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas. The cruise line’s 7-night Caribbean deployment delivers on the desire for more local flavor with the addition of extended stays and late-night visits to select destinations like Oranjestad, Aruba and San Juan, Puerto Rico. Vacationers will see a completely different side of the sun-soaked beaches and lively city centers with more time to explore the natural wonders found inland or enjoy regional delicacies and drinks under the stars. No destination delivers more of everything than Royal Caribbean’s very-own Perfect Day at CocoCay, the first in the cruise line’s series of private island destinations around the world. The whole family has their pick of thrill and chill experiences, from the tallest waterslide in North America and the highest vantage point in The Bahamas from a helium balloon that rises 450 feet in the air to white sand beaches and clear blue water at Chill Island and The Bahamas’ first floating cabanas at Coco Beach Club.
