Royal Caribbean announces new short Caribbean cruises

MIAMI — Royal Caribbean has unveiled all-new short Caribbean sailings for 2022-2023, offering travellers the perfect excuse for a weekend getaway or mid-week break.

Departing from five ports across Florida and Texas, the 17 itineraries sail for three to five nights onboard one of eight ships. From the ancient ruins of Costa Maya in Mexico, to the vibrant islands of the Caribbean, cruises include plenty of adventures at sea as well as on Perfect Day at CocoCay, Royal Caribbean’s private destination in The Bahamas that’s home to Thrill Waterpark, the Caribbean’s largest freshwater pool, Up, Up & Away (the helium balloon that floats up to 450 feet in the air) and The Bahamas’ first floating cabanas at Coco Beach Club.

The 2022-2023 season and year-round short Caribbean cruises open for bookings today.
