Royal Caribbean Group Extends Suspension of Cruising

Tuesday, March 9, 2021

MIAMI – March 9, 2021 – Royal Caribbean Group (NYSE: RCL) continues to focus on the healthy and safe return to cruising for guests, crew and the communities we visit. As we work closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and government authorities around the world toward this shared goal, we are extending the suspension of certain sailings for our cruise lines. 

The following schedule reflects adjustments to our upcoming 2021 itineraries. 

  • Royal Caribbean International
    • Suspending sailings through May 31
    • Excluding Quantum of the Seas and Odyssey of the Seas
    • Excluding China Spectrum of the Seas and Voyager of the Seas sailings from 4/30 through May and beyond
  • Celebrity Cruises
    • Suspending sailings through May 31
  • Silversea Cruises:
    • Suspending sailings through May 31
  • Azamara:
    • Suspending sailings though June 30

Royal Caribbean International’s Quantum of the Seas resumed sailing in Singapore last year with the local government’s CruiseSafe Certification. The certification confirms the three- and four-night Ocean Getaways meet the comprehensive health and safety requirements developed by the Singapore government. Recently, the company announced that Israeli holidaymakers will set a new course for adventure this summer when Royal Caribbean International begins sailing from Israel for the first time in May with fully vaccinated crew and guests over the age of 16. The global cruise line will offer Israelis a combination of 3- to 7-night escapes visiting the Greek Isles and Cyprus on board its highly anticipated, brand-new ship, Odyssey of the Seas. The new sailings will go on sale on Tuesday, March 9.

Royal Caribbean Group continues to work with our Healthy Sail Panel of globally recognized scientific and medical experts to come back stronger, and we look forward to welcoming our guests back on board.

We are reaching out to our guests and travel partners to share further details and address any questions or concerns they may have. For more information, visit the cruise lines’ websites:  Azamara: www.azamara.com, Celebrity Cruises: www.celebritycruises.com, Royal Caribbean www.royalcaribbean.com and Silversea: www.silversea.com.
