Good news, we are all one week closer to our next Royal Caribbean cruise!  In case you missed any of the Royal Caribbean fun from this week, here is our weekly round up!

Royal Caribbean made headlines this week with the announcement it will build a brand new state-of-the-art cruise terminal in Galvetonand announced it will send an Oasis Class cruise ship there to be homeported.

Allure of the Seas will be based in Galveston, beginning in November 2021 and offer 7-night sailings.

The brand new Terminal 3 will be big enough to handle Royal Caribbean's largest cruise ships, including an Oasis Class ship or the new Icon Class ships slated to debut in 2022.
