Royal Caribbean shortens some Adventure of the Seas 2021 cruises due to Galveston pier construction delays

Guests on select Adventure of the Seas cruises in 2021 received emails from Royal Caribbean that their cruises have been shortened by a day due to pier construction delays.

A number of guests took to social media to share copies of an email they received from Royal Caribbean to inform them of a change in their Adventure of the Seas sailing.

Citing "pier construction delays in the Galveston terminal", the cruise line has altered the planned 5-night Western Caribbean itinerary to a 4-night sailing.

Guests on affected sailings should be contacted via email.

Royal Caribbean has offered these guests three options:

  • Stay on the new 4-night Western Caribbean sailing departing from Galveston
  • Rebook to a different 5-night Adventure of the Seas sailing later in 2021 or 2022
  • Cancel for full refund

Guests have until  September 17, 2020 to make a decision on which option they would like to choose. If nothing is chosen, they will automatically be moved to the new 4-night Western Caribbean sailing departing on the same day as the original cruise.

Royal Caribbean has also created a form to process which option they would like in order to bypass waiting on the phone. The form must be filled out by September 17.
