Royal Caribbean International will launch cruises from Bermuda in June aboard the Vision of the Seas, its second ship slated to resume service just outside U.S. borders for North Americans this summer.
Royal and sister line Celebrity Cruises said on Friday that they would launch sailings this June from the Bahamas and St. Maarten, respectively.
The seven-day cruises from Bermuda will feature Royal’s private island in the Bahamas, Perfect Day at CocoCay, and an overnight in Bermuda.
The cruises are set to run from June 26 through August and open for bookings March 29. Like its Bahamas cruise, and Celebrity’s from St. Maarten, they will be available only to adults who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and those under the age of 18 with negative test results.
Cabanas on CocoCay. This summer’s Bermuda cruises will be calling at Royal Caribbean’s private island in the Bahamas.
“Travelers are eager to venture out gradually and start cruising again,” Michael Bayley, CEO of Royal Caribbean, said in a statement. “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.”
The Vision will dock at Bermuda’s Royal Naval Dockyard. The island’s minister of transport, W. Lawrence Scott, said he looks forward to “the opportunity for pre- and post-cruise stays in Bermuda.”
