Royal Caribbean Post Round-Up: November 15, 2020

Matt Hochberg

Another busy week of Royal Caribbean fun just wrapped up, but if you missed any of it, I have a concise look at all of it for you in this weekly news round-up!

After a week of speculation, Royal Caribbean is now taking sign ups for anyone that wants to volunteer go on a test sailing.

Royal Caribbean received thousands of requests, and so decided to offer a waitlist form to be notified if there are any opportunities.

The cruise line has a form set up for adults only (18 years or older) to enter basic information about themselves.

Over 20,000 people signed up in just the first 24 hours, with many more since.

Why shore excursions are the big change to cruises you aren't thinking about

While the focus on all the changes to cruises largely centers around wearing masks, testing and social distancing, a major change to cruises whenever they return is going to be shore excursions.

While Royal Caribbean has not divulged its full list of new rules guests can expect when cruises resume in North America, limitations on shore excursions are a likely component to the cruise that could see big changes.

Going on a cruise is going to change, including how we plan and book shore excursions.
