Royal Caribbean Post Round-Up: April 24, 2016

Matt Hochberg

Spring is here and it is also Sunday, which means we are celebrating warm(er) temperatures and Royal Caribbean news from this week!

Royal Caribbean made headlines this week when it canceled seven more Empress of the Seas sailings.

The cruise line had to push back Empress' return to the fleet by more than a month, marking the second occasion in which Royal Caribbean canceled scheduled sailings on Empress of the Seas in just the last few months.

Many guests are more upset with the fact the cancelations were announced just days before their cruise than the cancelations.

Royal Caribbean explained they had to cancel the sailings because all the galleys need to be fully replaced, at a cost of $10 million.
