Royal Caribbean Post Round-Up: July 21, 2019

21 Jul 2019

Happy Sunday! We hope you are having a great weekend! Now it’s time to sit back, relax, and catch up on all the Royal Caribbean news from the week!

The big news of the week was when two Royal Caribbean ships skipped stops in San Juan, Puerto Rico due to concerns over protests in the area.

Empress of the Seas and Harmony of the Seas were re-routed due to political demonstrations in the island's capital. Harmony of the Seas was rerouted on Wednesday to its next port of St. Maarten, while Empress of the Seas visited Tortola instead.

The good news is by Thursday, Allure of the Seas was able to visit San Juan as scheduled.
