Israelis can now book the newly announced Odyssey of the Seas cruises from Israel.
The new sailings have been loaded into Royal Caribbean's website, and are available between June and October 2021.
Sailing from Haifa, Odyssey will offer sailings ranging in duration between 2- and 7-nights to destinations in Cyprus and Greece.
Ports visited include:
- Limassol, Cyprus
- Rhodes, Greece
- Mykonos, Greece
- Athens (Piareus), Greece
- Santorini, Greece
Interestingly, inside and oceanview rooms are not currently bookable. Only balcony rooms and suites are offered as bookable options.
Royal Caribbean is working with Israel’s health and tourism authorities to offer the first to offer fully vaccinated sailings, where both crew and guests above the age of 16 will be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Details on the additional health and safety measures to be implemented by Israel and Royal Caribbean will be announced at a later date.
Royal Caribbean's website noted at the bottom of the page that its health protocols are subject to change depending on the destination and time the cruise sails.
Health and safety protocols, guest conduct rules, and regional travel restrictions vary by ship and destination, and are subject to change without prior notice. Due to evolving health protocols, imagery and messaging may not accurately reflect onboard and destination experiences, offerings, features, or itineraries. These may not be available on your booked voyage, and are subject to change without prior notice.
Odyssey of the Seas is currently scheduled to be delivered to Royal Caribbean from Meyer Werft on March 24, 2021.
In addition to releasing the new sailings, Royal Caribbean has added Odyssey of the Seas to its app.
Odyssey now appears in the list of supported ships that can be found from within the app.
