Royal Caribbean Post Round-Up: February 19, 2017

19 Feb 2017
Matt Hochberg

Happy Sunday and we hope you had a great week.  It was a busy week of Royal Caribbean fun, and we have a round-up of all of it in this hand-dandy blog post.

The headline many Royal Caribbean fans talked about this week was Majesty of the Seas being delayed for one night in Port Canaveral following an U.S. Coast Guard inspection.

Evidently, the Coast Guard was not satisfied with some of the safety equipment on Majesty of the Seas, and Royal Caribbean had to resolve the issues before the ship was cleared. Luckily, the ship was only delayed for one evening and was able to get underway soon thereafter.

For the delay, Royal Caribbean provided its guests with a 25% refundable onboard credit, and a 25% Future Cruise Certificate.
