We might finally be getting close to test sailings beginning.
Royal Caribbean International President and CEO Michael Bayley told Wall Street investors during an earnings call an update on where things stand with the CDC.

"We're literally expecting the technical specifications any day soon," Mr. Bayley told investors.
