Happy Sunday! Temperatures may be dropping, but there is plenty of Royal Caribbean news to share.  This is your weekly summary of all the Royal Caribbean news from this past week, perfectly fitted for your consumption.

It was a busy news week for Royal Caribbean, beginning with a major announcement early in the week with 2019-2020 deployments.

Royal Caribbean teased for a few days its big announcement, and then revealed a number of deployment changes coming.  This includes Ovation of the Seas offering cruises to Alaska, moving of Harmony of the Seas to Port Canaveral, and short cruises on a pair of Voyager class ships.

The newly announced itineraries will go on sale over the next few weeks, with the remaining 2019-2020 sailings to be announced sometime next year.
