MIAMI — Royal Caribbean is sailing full steam ahead towards a summer restart, with new seven-night cruises onboard Vision of the Seas from the first-time homeport of Bermuda.
Seven-night itineraries on Vision will sail from June through August and include an overnight in Bermuda as well as a full day at Perfect Day at CocoCay, Royal Caribbean’s top-rated private island destination in The Bahamas that’s home to Thrill Waterpark, Up, Up & Away (a helium balloon that floats up to 450 feet in the air) and the first floating cabanas in The Bahamas at Coco Beach Club.
Bookings for the new Bermuda itineraries will open on March 29 and depart as early as June 26. At this time, the cruises will be available to adult guests who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Those under the age of 18 must have negative test results.
Earlier this month, the cruise line announced its resumption of operations with seven-night cruise getaways onboard Adventure of the Seas to Cozumel and The Bahamas.
“We are thankful to the government and people of Bermuda for welcoming us to their beautiful island nation with open arms as Vision of the Seas’ new homeport. This is another step in our safe and measured return to sailing beginning in June,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO.
“Travellers are eager to venture out gradually and start cruising again. By adding a second unique option to sail the Caribbean from a destination as rich and vibrant as Bermuda, we’re offering guests choice in how they can enjoy their well-deserved vacations this summer.”
Details about health and safety measures will be announced at a later date but guests can rest assured that a multi-layered approach will be led by science and leverage expert guidance from the Healthy Sail Panel, Royal Caribbean Group’s Head of Public Health and Chief Medical Officer, and local government and health authorities.
In addition, travellers must meet the travel requirements of Bermuda, which currently include a negative PCR test result before travelling, testing upon arrival in to the country, and filling out appropriate entry forms.
