Now it’s time to sit back, relax, and catch up on all the latest Royal Caribbean news!
The big news this week is the apparent extension of cruise cancellations from U.S. ports through September 15, 2020.
The Cruise Lines International Association made the announcement that its member lines will voluntarily extend the suspension of U.S. cruise passenger operations until September 15, 2020.
Royal Caribbean has not announced the change on their end, but the cruise line has already taken down those likely cancelled sailings from its website.
Royal Caribbean posted on their website it will share more details about this announcement with guests early next week.
